His Songs

Arabada Beş Evde Onbeş

It is about a man who bargains with a woman for a close relationship. The song has many references to a sexual activity in its lyrics. The song became very popular thanks to the internet file sharing programmes but because of its theme and heavy usage of slang language, the popularity of the song is controversial.


"Hovarda" is the name of his new album and also the first single released from the album which finally carried Ankaralı Namık to the popularity he had always dreamed of after the years he had spent as an "internet miracle". The song is about Kaya Çilingiroğlu, a famous Turkish businessman, who is well known for his relations with women and his nightlife in Turkey. The song is receiving a large amount of airplay (first time in the career of Namık) in many of the popular music stations in the country.


His biggest rival is Ankaralı Turgut. They are also very similar in their style but Turgut claimed to be the only real "Ankaralı" singer which caused an ongoing conflict between them. Namık's other rival is Hasan Yılmaz but Yılmaz prefers a more gentle way to share his music. With the unexpected success of "Hovarda", Namık became the leading person in the "Ankaralı" school in late 2006.


*He attended to an episode of "Dikkat Şahan Çıkabilir", the famous parody show of Şahan Gökbakar. They singed Ankaralı Namık's trademark song, Arabada Beş Evde Onbeş.
*He recorded his version of "Genç Osman", a popular Ankara style dance song.
*Lyrics of his songs are used in many different comedy music mixes.
*His nickname is "Ayarcı" (the adjuster), a slang word which is equivalent to "woman-chaser".
