“I’m in the middle of this whole thing, and I also find it hard to explain what happened,” Mr. Toth said. “People are rooting for him like they’re rooting for the Hungarian national soccer team.”

Politics, however, has dashed Azahriah’s chances of representing her country in Europe’s musical equivalent of the World Cup, the Eurovision Song Contest. Authorities, alarmed by Eurovision’s reputation as Europe’s biggest gay event, ended Hungary’s participation in the annual competition in 2020.

“It would have been amazing if I could have won Eurovision if I had been a white, heterosexual guy,” Azahriah said.

David Sajo, entertainment director for Telex, a popular Hungarian online news site, said he was not a big fan of hers, but praised Azahriah for broadening Hungarian musical horizons through her mix of Afrobeat, Caribbean ska, Latin and other genres that are “rather simple and generic in the West, but unique here”.

Mr Sajo said Azahriah’s big break came in 2022 with a scandal that could have ended many other careers. After a concert at a provincial pancake festival, a video surfaced online showing the artist having sex backstage with a fan.
