This confusion was discussed for a long time in the media, because in the 2000s the Internet was not yet so widespread, so it was difficult to check which Minaev you were buying. Over time, the writer Sergei Minaev became more popular than his counterpart. He not only wrote the cult novel “Duhless” and “The Chicks”, but also began to host several television programs.
It seems that “disc jockey number one” (this is what the musician Minaev calls himself) does not like it too much. In a recent interview, he admitted that the writer simply took advantage of this situation. “It wasn’t he who interfered with me. I helped him. While the people figured out who is who, the dude cut some money on me … “- Sergei jokingly notes.
As for the above books, the artist Minaev got acquainted with the work of the namesake, and he did not like it. “Was reading. I do not like. I only read literature. These are proven authors … The new ones somehow let us down … But I don’t know personally, ”the musician said.

Recently, the musician has been actively conquering social networks. He has a popular blog, as well as a channel where he sings famous songs and publishes his versions of these hits. For example, he turned “White Roses” into “White Braids”. It is interesting that Minaev does not consider this song bad or shameful. “It’s a shame when gorged artists / footballers demonstrate a mediocre game / song in Europe / at Eurovision. As for the song itself … I often see it on the Internet, performed by super professional bands and performers. And they do it amazingly. That is, the song is wonderful, a hit, but the original, “gentle” performance let us down. It’s too primitive, ”the artist thinks.
As for the writer Minaev, he made a career and became one of the most respected media managers in Russia. He not only has his own channel on the Web and promoted social networks, he also runs Esquire magazine for the past few years.
