Gojko grew up in Eastern Europe, in a small war torn town stricken by adverse poverty in south Serbia. As a young child of 7, because he showed an interest, he started dancing and singing in a local group. From an early age, something that set Gojko apart from others was his strong opinion about everything: Politics, Economy, Celebrities, etc. His quick wit and musical talent lead him to perform with members of a young musical completion group, which in turn lead to advancing to the “Junior Eurovision song contest”. His opinionated and outgoing personality afforded him many opportunities for interviews representing the group. At the age of 17 Gojko moved to Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia. There, he started going to an elite singing school where he was trained in an operatic way of singing called Bel Canto. Because of the severe poverty, not being understood, a strong will to do something bigger with his life, and with much difficulty, he move to the USA , where he lives today. In the USA with his love of song and dance, he was able to volunteer, teaching kids how to sing and dance. This prompted him to cultivate his creative side.
At the advice of a counselor, he began perusing a career in entertainment, starting with modeling and then singing. Gojko’s first song, LUXURY, was done by Grammy nominated producer Rey Reel. The lyrics were by Krysta Youngs , a lady that has written for many big names in the music industry. The vocal production was handled by Bert Elliot (producer to OneRepublic and Ryan Tedder. Bert Elliot is a producer and co-writer with the likes of David Quinones of The Writing Camp (Beyonce, The Pussycat Dolls), Keith Harris (Nicki Minaj, Madonna), and Brent Kutzle (David Guetta) .) Gojko is someone who understands the entertainment business. It’s quite remarkable that as a new model, Gojko managed to
publish his work and to be seen in magazines and news papers in : USA, Cayman Islands, Nigeria, Serbia , Montenegro, Bosnia… and many others.
Gojko is one to watch! He is someone who survived wars, bombings, sanctions, devestating poverty, adversities, yet came to united states with one suitcase, and is now working with big names in the music industry, making amazing music

Why did you select this song as your current single?
I had a huge selection of songs that I could have produced, but my goal this time was to have an upbeat, happy song, with great energy. This song had all of that plus more. And, soon as I published this song ,as an independent artist , that had no support of any record labels, or big sponsors this song had bound its place in the hearts of people that knows how to recognize good quality music.
What was the writing process for the song?
“Luxury” was my first song, and it was a process of me exploring the whole process of production, writing and developing a song. I have a thing where I work only with very talented people and I like to let people do whatever they do the best.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
Well, as a first song I released it has and will always have a special space in my heart. The lyrics of this song talk about love as something between two people where it is not important how much money you have or how expensive wine you drink but who are you with, who you wake up with , hug, kiss ….
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
I am an person that does not perform unless I am sure I can create an amazing show that people will talk about and remember. If I decide to perform this song I will make sure that it looks like an world class show, because I believe that my fans deserve only the best.
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
As someone who has survived wars, poverty, moved alone to another continent, and started a successful career alone I have decided to create music that will be an opposite and help people to forget about their problems and relax , be happy , dance and don’t focus on things that are making people worried or sad. My goal is to help people and make them happy.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
I am actually in a process of recording a new single and for that one I will produce an video. It will be a super catchy song that has a good mixture of EDM and POP music. As performing , I also don’t produce videos unless I have enough resources to make an video that can compete with the biggest stars in world.
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
A lot of things can motivate me to create music. I always try to think about bigger picture. My music is very commercial ,jet has a good and very intelligent message. Even though my music is happy and upbeat, catchy , dance oriented. My inspiration came from my own life experiences, I don’t want people to feel what I felt 🙂
