Aidan announces debut album for March 2023

Following a surprise performance during the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, singer Aidan announced that he will be releasing his debut album in March of this year.

Titled ‘This is Aidan’, the singer hinted at the release by posting what seems to be the front cover of the album, which features the singer in a pensive look donning a colourful jumper.

The singer has not yet unveiled what songs will make it into the album, but following the official release of Reġina, it is entirely possible that the hit song could find a place in the roster.

Aidan also performed some iconic tracks during Eurovision, being unable to use the song he was set to compete with in the competition. Aidan performed the likes of Ritmu and Naħseb Fik. 

We’ll have to wait a month to see what Aidan will come up with, and following the hype built up after Eurovision, the excitement is immensely justified!

Anthony Marmara identified as Imdina traffic accident victim

Anthony Marmara, who is known by those close to him as “Twanny” and ‘L-Għasfur’ (the Bird), has been identified as the victim of the Mdina traffic accident which took place in the early hours of yesterday morning. 

The 54-year-old from Tarxien sadly lost his life on 12th February 2023 after he was hit by a car in Triq il-Belt Valletta, Imdina, which was being driven by a 20 year old resident of Qrendi. 

His son, Danilo, posted a heartfelt post to his social media, saying: ‘Rest in Peace Father. I love you endlessly.’

His cousin John wrote a eulogy for the ‘brother-he-never-had’, revealing how the two had spent most of their time together laughing and working. 

‘Thank you for the wonderful memories. Our family lost a flower, but I am sure you are now enjoying the Lord’s presence’. 

Tarxien’s mayor Joseph Abela also paid tribute to Twanny, saying that the late Anthony was hard-working and exemplary. He wished his deepest condolences to all his loved ones in this trying time.

On behalf of MaltaDaily, we wish all of Anthony’s loved ones our deepest condolences.

Turkish Embassy encouraging urgent financial donations

‘As a result of generous in-kind donations collected beyond expectations’ the Turkish Embassy in Valletta explained in a new statement, ‘please do not bring any more clothing and food items.’ 

The embassy explained that instead of food and clothing, those wishing to donate to the earthquake survivors should switch the focus onto other items which may be needed such as;

Winter tents; gas heaters; blankets (new and unused); generators; sleeping bags (new and unused); camping cots; camping mats for tents; mobile toilets and shower cabins; and container homes. 

The embassy is also urging for financial donations due to the urgent need as they will be more useful for the survivors in immediate situations. 

Those wishing to financially donate can check out the Turkish Embassy’s social media for details of bank accounts.
