Peggy Zina gave an interview and mentioned, among other things, her daughter, but also her career in music.

The singer spoke on the show Breakfast @ Star and initially referred to her career.

"Because we know the world now, I only speak in public when there is a reason," she said at first, and then spoke of her anguish over the years.

"I am anxious to grow up, but in a reasonable context," said Peggy Zina.

"I want to grow up beautiful, but I would not do anything to change or look 20 years old. I think it's futile."

As for her family and her daughter, the singer stressed that her arrival is one of the most important moments of her life.

"When you become a parent, you start thinking twice. "Electra does not listen to my songs, she fanatically listens to Josephine and Eleni Foureira," she explained.

Finally, she stated that her favourite participation of Greece in Eurovision was that with Michalis Rakintzi - Love Is A Wonderful Thing in 2002 .

"I really liked Rakintzis and I still like him... I love him," she said.
