Vlado won the Skopje Fest in 1998 and he went to Birmingham where Macedonia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest. The song Ne Zori, Zoro finished in 19th place and failed to qualify Macedonia for the Eurovision Song Contest 1999.
Ever since the beginning of his solo career Vlado has been writing most of the music and all the lyrics for his songs. Even though he has often been referred to as "the most romantic songwriter and lyricist in the history of macedonian popular music" he described himself as "a mere scribbler of love songs". The secret of his long-lasting success with the wide audience probably lies in the mystic beauty of his ballads combined with the sensuality of his velvety baritone voice.
