Famous Kazakh singer Dimash Kudaibergen spits in toddler's mouth

AKIPRESS.COM - Famous Kazakh singer Dimash Kudaibergen got involved in old Kazakh tradition of spitting in baby's mouth.

"The Kazakh have ancient tradition of "spitting in mouth" when a famous, respected person spits in a baby's mouth so that the baby "caught popularity and talent," the authors of the video wrote.

"It may sound weird, but the tradition is innocent, and many parents would want famous people to infect their children with popularity and talent," they wrote.

25-year-old Dimash gained significant popularity in Kazakhstan and other post-Soviet countries in 2015 upon becoming the Grand Prix winner of Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk, Belarus. He rose to fame in China with his participation as a "wildcard competitor" in Hunan TV's Singer 2017.
