    The reason behind the protests were pictures allegedly shot in 1993 during the Bosnian War wearing the uniform of the Army of Republika Srpska in her besieged hometown Brčko.
    More Details Hide Details Croatian and Bosnian protesters were angered that she was performing in their newly established independent countries and called her a "traitor" and četnikuša (feminine version of chetnik also used as a pejurative form for Serbs). The concerts went ahead as scheduled with no incident and she claimed the uniform was from the set of a 1990 music video for her song "Tamba Lamba", in which she wore a similar uniform while filming at a zoo in Kenya for the movie, Hajde da se volimo 3. Although, when compared side by side, the uniforms are different. Brena also claimed she was only in Brčko in 1993 to rescue her parents.

    Her wedding to Serbian tennis star Slobodan Živojinović on 7 December 1991 was a big media event throughout Yugoslavia.
    More Details Hide Details The lavish ceremony took place at Belgrade's InterContinental Hotel. The level of interest in the event was such that Brena's manager Raka Đokić even released a VHS tape of the wedding. Their very public relationship has been providing steady fodder for various tabloid publications ever since. The Živojinović's first child, a son named Stefan, was born in New York City on 21 May 1992. Their second son Viktor was born 30 March 1998.
    After her marriage in 1991, when she briefly moved to the United States, she ceased cooperation with Slatki Greh.
    More Details Hide Details However, in 2000 they recorded another album together Pomračenje sunca, their last album to date. After eight years of absence from the music business, Lepa Brena returned in 2008 with Uđi slobodno and Začarani krug in 2011. Both albums were major successes. Beginning in 2012, Brena started recording sessions for two studio albums. The first, Izvorne i novokomponovane narodne pesme was released in December 2013. She dedicated the album to her ailing mother Ifeta, who sang folk songs to her when she was a child. Ifeta died the following year. In the month after that album's release, Brena premiered two other songs: "Ljubav čuvam za kraj" on 28 December 2013 and "Zaljubljeni veruju u sve", with lyrics written by Hari Varešanović, on 12 January 2014. On 19 December 2013, Brena, along with Dragana Mirković, Severina, Jelena Rozga, Haris Džinović, Aca Lukas and Jelena Karleuša, was a guest at a humanitarian concert by Goran Bregović at the Olympic Hall Juan Antonio Samaranch in the Bosnian capital city Sarajevo for the Roma in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Brena arrived in Sarajevo two days before the concert so that she could enjoy the city with friends before the concert. She said in an interview: "Sarajevo has suffered and survived so much, I'm really glad to see positive people and happiness in this city".
    Brena and Slatki Greh released their second-to-last album together, Zaljubiška, in 1991.
    More Details Hide Details In February 1994, after a nearly three-year hiatus, Brena premiered her first solo album Ja nemam drugi dom, and held a famous "concert in the rain" on 13 June 1994 at Belgrade's Tašmajdan stadium which was attended by 35,000 people. After that, she recorded two more solo albums: Kazna Božija (1994) and Luda za tobom (1996). In the mid-90s she had many popular songs; "Kazna Božija", "Luda za tobom", "Sve mi dobro ide osim ljubavi", "Izdajice", "Moj se dragi englez pravi", "I da odem iza leđa bogu", "Ja nemam drugi dom", "Dva dana", and "Ti si moj greh", among others.

    More Details Hide Details The music video for the pop-folk song Čuvala me mama was filmed on the Croatian island Lopud.

  • 1987
    Age 26
    During the premiere of the film on 24 October 1987, Brena met her future husband, Serbian tennis star Slobodan Živojinović.
    More Details Hide Details Based on the success of the original, two sequels were produced: Hajde da se volimo 2 (1989) and Hajde da se volimo 3 (1990), which was followed by the studio album Boli me uvo za sve. Boli me uvo za sve also had multiple hit songs including "Čik pogodi", "Biće belaja", "Tamba Lamba", and the title track.
  • 1986
    Age 25
    By the end of 1986, Lepa Brena had become the star of Belgrade social jet-set, and the most successful public figure in Yugoslavia.
    More Details Hide Details Brena's manager Raka Đokić came up with the idea that her seventh studio album should be followed by a movie in which she would play the lead role. This idea was successfully implemented in 1987 when the motion picture Hajde da se volimo was filmed. The movie had the same name as the album. Many then-popular Yugoslav actors co-starred in the film, including Dragomir Gidra Bojanić, Milutin Karadžić, Velimir Bata Živojinović, Milan Štrljić, etc.
  • 1984
    Age 23
    1984 saw Brena and her band begin a cooperation with a new manager and producer, Raka Đokić.
    More Details Hide Details Bato, Bato, their third album, was released the same year. A new provocative image was accompanied by a new musical style, different from the one fostered by Popović. Later that year, they held a concert in neighboring Romania, at the stadium in Timișoara to an audience of 65,000, what was at time among the most successful concerts of a Yugoslav musician outside their home country. Their next three albums, Pile moje (1985) and Voli me, voli and Uske pantalone (both 1986) would propel her to the throne of the Yugoslav music scene. Along with these albums, Brena established a cooperation with Serbian folk star Miroslav Ilić and recorded a collaborative extended play Jedan dan života, which featured four songs, including a romantic duet called "Jedan dan života", and the song "Živela Jugoslavija", which was received with a mixed response. The latter song was in line with Brena's only official political stance: an uncompromising support of a united Yugoslavia, with her becoming a symbol of this view.
  • 1983
    Age 22
    In 1983, Lepa Brena and Slatki Greh ended their collaboration with Milutin Popović-Zahar and Vladimir Cvetković.
    More Details Hide Details That same year Lepa Brena and Slatki Greh participated in Jugovizija, the Yugoslav selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, with the song "Sitnije, Cile, sitnije". The song was released on an extended play of the same name, along with another song. Their appearance on Jugovizija caused confusion among the audience, since the competition was considered exclusively reserved for pop singers. Although they did not qualify for the prestigious European competition, Lepa Brena and Slatki Greh won the contest, gaining even more popularity.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1980
    Age 19
    Brena's first performance with Lira Show occurred on 6 April 1980 in the hotel Turist in Bačka Palanka.
    More Details Hide Details Lira Show changed their name to Slatki Greh (Sweet Sin) in 1981. Brena and Slatki Greh premiered their first studio album, Čačak, Čačak, on 3 February 1982. It was named after the Serbian city Čačak. The album was written mostly by Milutin Popović-Zahar, and the career-manager was Vladimir Cvetković. Since her career began in 1980, she has become arguably the most popular singer of the former Yugoslavia, and a top-selling female recording artist with more than 40 million records sold. That same year Lepa Brena and Slatki Greh appeared in the first part of Yugoslav classic comedy film Tesna koža with popular comedian Nikola Simić and actress Ružica Sokić, which raised their profile and brought them almost instant fame. They would again team up with songwriter Milutin Popović-Zahar for their second studio album Mile voli disko, released 18 November 1982. In addition to the title song, the album had a couple of other hit songs: "Duge noge" and "Dama iz Londona".
    In early 1980, at the age of 19, Fahreta began singing with a band called Lira Show when the group's original singer Spasa left the band because her husband, a boxer, did not want his wife to be a singer.
    More Details Hide Details Saša Popović, the band's frontman, was initially opposed to the idea that Fahreta should be the band's new singer, but later changed his opinion. She subsequently moved to Novi Sad and then to Belgrade.
