Ferhan[1] Nil Karaibrahimgil (Turkish for the Nile; born 17 October 1976) is a Turkish singer and songwriter, mostly noted for her distinct lyrics. Nil's passion and admiration for music stems from her father, Suavi Karaibrahimgil, who is also a musician although he is not currently active in the Turkish music industry.

Biography[edit]

In 2000, she graduated from Boğaziçi University with a degree in Political Science and International Relations. She also further received the Crystal Apple prize award twice, which recognized her achievements in advertising. Besides academic success, Nil has found fortune in the Turkish music scene. Many of her songs deal with love, marriage and relationships. Her articles have been published weekly in Hürriyet, a daily Turkish newspaper, since 2004.[2] On 21 January 2010, she married Sertab Erener's brother Serdar Erener near the shore of the Nile River.[3] She has a son named Aziz Arif, born in May 2014.[4]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ "It this it [love]?/Is that all [that love is]?", conveys both the excitement at the prospect of love and the complement/inverse of the surplus in "XL": a love too small or too lacking.
