21-year-old Enki Bracaj impressed TV chiefs with her voluptuous assets so much so that they gave her a job, which saw viewership figures for the Albanian TV station soaring.
Enki’s fame has seen her become somewhat of an overnight sensation catapulting her into the world international celebrity. TV station boss Ismet Drishti is furious with her for doing a screen test with her blouse undone and has suspended her over the issue as well as apparently trying to talk her out of a photoshoot for Playboy magazine.
Ismet was a director of several Albanian TV shows before setting up local TV channel Zjarr which has seen booming audience figures and apparently he decided to interview her because he was looking for someone with something a bit different to present his new news programme.
“The idea came after I realised that all the TV stations in Albania had more or less the same face and the same political message from either the left or the right, and I wanted to offer something independent and with a fresh face.”
Enki meanwhile has confirmed that she has been bombarded with offers from around the world. The young woman, who studies public relations at the local university, said she was getting so many friend requests and messages on her Facebook page that she could not even read them all, never mind reply, and thanked her fans for their support.
Defending her decision to show a bitta skin on the news, she stated:
“I am not expecting to get famous overnight, and it’s not easy to get into the television business. I’m a journalist that’s just at the beginning of her career, and at the start you have to take some risks.”
TV station boss Ismet meanwhile said: “I told her she should concentrate on the journalism and her studies, and told her to not go ahead and do this photoshoot. We are still negotiating how we might get round the problem.”
