In May 2012, all the attention of the Romanian media was focused on Costi Ionita, as the song that he produced for the Romanian band Mandinga, represented Romania at Eurovision Song Contest from Baku (Azerbaijan) between 22-26th of May 2012. The song
called “Zaleilah” had a huge impact on the Romanian audience, as well as international. The song was requested for licensing in 2 different countries each day, since the winning day, when at the end of the contest, Romania was placed on the 12th place.
Also, Costi announced at the end of April 2012, the beginning of the collaboration with the famous artist Mohombi, with whom Costi recorded a featuring with Celia, one of the most famous Romanian singers. The song is called “Love 2 Party” and it was released worldwide. The song promotes the Romanian seaside as a touristic attraction for the foreign people.
At the beginning of January 2012, Costi was present at “Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, the most popular TV show in the USA. There, Shaggy performed live alongside Kat DeLuna the song “Dame”, composed by the Romanian Costi Ionita. The live performance made in a few hours the tour of the world and it was Shaggy’s hit.
In November 2011, Costi Ionita produced a new hit for the bulgarian singer Cvetelina Yaneva featuring the arab singer Rida Al Abdullh, entering this way the arabic music industry for the second time. The song was called “Broi me” and it was a big hit in Bulgaria.
But Costi’s success didn’t stop. He also produced “Is it love”, a featuring between Celia and Kaye Styles (the producer of the soundtrack for the TV series Prison Break). The video of the song was considered at that time the most expensive video from the Eastern Europe.
