Amélie Oudéa-Castéra returns to the mockery she received after singing a song by Aya Nakamura

She will no longer sing Aya Nakamura. During an interview with Konbini this Thursday, May 9, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, the Minister of Sports and the Olympic Games, refused to hum again Djadja, reports BFMTV. She had already done so for the first time last March to show her support for the artist, targeted by racist attacks when her name was expected to perform a song by Edith Piaf for the Paris Olympic Games ceremony.

“Um Djadja, um Djadja… I like Djadja, I like Doudou, I like SMS, I like Hypé. There is rhythm, there is vitality”, she confided on March 10, recalls the channel. The video, widely relayed on social networks, led to numerous messages of mockery from Internet users. “They made fun of me”regretted the minister. “You know, I’m also learning the trade a little. […] We get a little trapped sometimes,” she then added.

The possibility of Aya Nakamura’s presence at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games had provoked a cascade of reactions. An investigation was also opened in mid-March after a report from Licra which pointed out racist publications on social networks. Rachida Dati, the Minister of Culture, notably mentioned “pure racism”.
