“Unbreathable”, “dangerous”, “evil”… Slimane will probably never return to “Unknown Land”

Long before participating in Eurovision 2024 and securing 4th place in the general ranking, Slimane has already set himself a big challenge. In 2023, he left with Raphaël from Casablanca to discover a country he knows nothing about. He who was eager to participate in the France 2 show “ Meeting in unknown land“, was not disappointed. It was towards Africa that he flew, off the coast of Guinea-Bissau, to meet the Bijagos.

Slimane suffered during his trip

The program will be broadcast Tuesday May 28, at 9:10 p.m., on the public service channel. And in the meantime, the production has released the first images of this journey. And Slimane readily admits, it was not easy. The singer of “ My love ” indeed assures, in all honesty: “If I had known exactly what was going to happen to me, I don’t know if I would have said yes…”

I have to say that “The air was literally unbreathable, there were dangerous snakes, we slept very poorly at night”, as reported by the star. In fact, Slimane is today “ hyper-proud » about him, he said. “Proud to have managed to surpass myself » assures Vitaa’s best friend. And to laugh: “I will never say again that I am not an adventurer.”

He missed his daughter very much

Besides these disadvantages in terms of comfort, Slimane especially had a big problem, being far from home… His daughter, Esmeralda, born in January 2022, missed him greatly during his trip. He says thus: “ She was only 1 and a half years old when I came back”. On his return, Slimane confided: “I told him that I had met new people, new friends, who live in another country. But first – and above all – I smothered her with kisses ! » The little girl will hear about this event for a long time. Indeed, Slimane guarantees: “ I took notes and made drawings throughout the trip. I know it’s an experience I will never forget and will talk to him about often.”
