Rising Stars: Meet Maringlen Çika

Today we’d like to introduce you to Maringlen Çika.

Hi Maringlen, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Singer, Musician, and DJ. Born in Tirana, Albania on 18 February 1993. I lived in Albania in my two first years and after, with my Grand Parents, I got transferred to another country.

We made this travel because when I was two years old, my mother passed away.

I grew up in our new city. I finished all my elementary studies when I started a course of guitar that was my first connection with music and art.

Also, I remember I was a good painter at that age.

When I was 17 one of my biggest idols Michael Jackson dies and at this point, I got the inspiration to learn a few the dance style of Michael sincerely I didn’t know that day will change forever my life after I learned how to do moonwalk the Michael Jackson style was one of the best choreographers in the town who that pushed me to keep working and growing with Dance, just one year of practice I was the best impersonators of Michael Jackson in Albania. This connection with Michael and TV SHOWS and Music with the audience with the public on the stage made me more decided and strong to continue my road to artistic events.

After an injury, I left the dance but the connection with my fans was too strong and I continued with deejaying and music composition, ten years of experience since 2012 made me one of the most popular Dj and Musician.

My first Album was launched in January 2020 with a compilation of my music and a collection of the best Albanian country-folk music. This month March 2022, I released my new single called “Cu Ngrita Me Nate” on all digital music platforms and in 1 week, I got a good reaction and feedback from fans about my new release.

New Projects Coming Soon this year are a Featuring song with DON ENIO that will be published in June and another Ballad RnB song that will be published in September.

That’s all my art. I started young boy with guitar lessons continued with dancing jumped on deejaying and now as a singer that’s the road I wanted to share with you and to give inspiration to all youngest artists to keep working hard for their dreams.

About my personal life, I have two children now Suen & Noah, my wife Amanda Çika who support me on each step I make.

And who manages all my social media like Instagram @maringlen.cika and my Facebook @djmaringlen.

She is the best manager I could have and I can’t find the word to thank her for her patience and focus on my increase.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Well, I explained and at the beginning of the interview all my road till here. The biggest difficulty was the missing support from Moderators and Event Organisations to invite me and increase my art activity and presence.

One of the biggest problems was the missing of a manager at my start; all things I had I do I made it by myself. The Costumes, The deals with events about the earning and profits because making art has huge costs to create the movie clips and much more the other part of the coin was the missing of sponsors to create one of the biggest events I ever made so that remained uncompleted till now. Let’s say my decision and my target to reach this what I am and all future project I will create for the fans is the biggest.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
My Projects are too much but let’s begin with my first album released on all digital platforms called “Dasma Shqipetare” on that album, I made one of the beautiful collections of Albanian country-folk music.

After I made a lot of productions for other artists, one of the most famous music creations was the song Tropojane With 100 Kg and the remix of traditional folk with hip hop rap.

I’m proud that for five years, I performed on prestigious stages and events like Michael Jackson bringing to the public again the figure of Michael.

The difference between me and other my colleagues is only the multi-art I made, DANCER, CHOROGRAPHER, GUITARIST, SINGER, MUSIC PRODUCER all by myself and auto did act.

I’m known mostly for the releases I made and especially with the new song “Cu ngrita me Nate”.

How do you think about luck?
The luck was not too much on my side but as I said, the biggest clue is my commitment and severity to reach all my targets.
