Musical artist

Çiljeta (born Çiljeta Xhilaga on 5 February 1985 in Tirana, Albania), and simply known by her stage name Çiljeta), is an Albanian pop singer and model.


Çiljeta was born in Tirana, Albania, to Ferdinand Xhilaga, an accountant, whose family hailed from Dibër, however he was born in Delvinë, and Majlinda Xhilaga, a hairdresser, from Korçë. She attended the Sami Frashëri High School in the city.[1]

Career as model

Xhilaga featured in the Miss Shqipëria competition in 2001 and won the title "Miss Cinema".[1][2]

Career as singer

Çiljeta distinguished herself in the successful song Dridhe (Template:Lang-en), a collaboration with Getoar Selimi of Tingulli 3nt, a rap group from Kosovo.[3] The song was followed by many successful ones, especially Puçi Puçi (Template:Lang-en), featuring Ingrid Gjoni, and Të dy qajmë të ndarë (Template:Lang-en), a hit composed by Flori Mumajesi and with words of Ardit Roshi in the Kënga Magjike of 2010, where she cried while interpreting the song.[4] Çiljeta had already interpreted in the Kënga Magjike 08 with S'ke ku vete (Template:Lang-en).

Çiljeta participated in the Dancing with the Stars (Albania) show, in its 2011 (second) edition, along with partner Dion Gjinika.

Private life

Çiljeta had a son in February 4, 2013, whom she has named Ferdinand, her father's name.[5] Her partner and father of the baby, is reportedly a French architect with a Latin American background.[6]


Çiljeta is self-declared as being a supporter of the Democratic Party of Albania, and its leader Sali Berisha.[2] Earlier, she had sang in New York, in a party organized by Red and Black Alliance, now an extinguished party, but declared that she was unaware of who the organizer of the party was.[7]

She notably had two public reactions against Serbia and Greece politicians: to Serbia after the Serbian government removed a memorial to the Liberation Army of Preševo, Medveđa and Bujanovac in Preševo, an Albanian-inhabited region of Serbia. The second reaction was to Greece, after she saw in television an anti-Albanian interview of Christos Pappas, a politician of the Golden Dawn, a Greek far-right political party.[8]
