About Kerim Tekin
Kerim Tekin was born in Erzincan, Turkey on 1975. He was interested in music from a very early age. While in middle-school, he took vocal and guitar lessons. He started his music career, while still in high school, playing in night clubs. In 1994, he signed with S music and started working on his first album with a professional band. He released his first album titled "Kara Gozlum" (my black eyed) in 1995; which was produced by Halis Bütünley and included 10 tracks. His song "cici baba" was a big hit.This frenzy led to him working with some big names in the industry which included Ozan-Kenan Doğulu, Garo Mafyan ,and Zeynep Talu. His hits like "kara Gozlum" and later produced "karbeyaz" helped him gain the love and support of teenagers in general. In 1997, he released his second and sadly last album titled "haykirsam dunyaya" (scream to the world) {poorly translated}. With his new album came a new and much sexier and grown up Kerim, sporting long hair and SOME facial hair. Production of his 11th song on the album was again produced by Halis Bütünley. Meanwhile speculations grew over his relationship with fellow singer Zerrin Ozer and later it was revealed that his song "karbeyaz" (snow white) was about her. The music video for "karbeyaz" was a huge success.In the midst of all the fame he starred in a show called "yaz Askim" (my summer love).And started Co-producing his movie "karbeyaz" which is still only missing 20 minutes from being completed. On June 28th, 1998, Tekin died due a chain car accident in Afyon, Turkey. It happened right after his performance in a festival, his last song ever performed was "karbeyaz" which sang about how he would rather die then be without his significant other. 8 years after his death, the producer of the movie "karbeyaz" and also a good friend of Kerim,Ahmet Altınbaşak, ventured out to complete and release the movie. Ahmet Altınbaşak asked Zerrin Ozer, Kerim Tekins' now confirmed EX, to star in 5 MINUTES of the remaining 20 minutes. Zerrin said yes but with a hefty price tag of $40K. Ahmet later released a statement saying that she was unfaithful and was only seeking fame. A model and a fan of Kerim Tekin stepped up, contacted Ahmet, and starred in the 5 mins for free. The film is still in works being restored and finished, no word on when the movie will be finished
