Extensive Definition

Robert Pešut () (born December 1, 1965 in Ljubljana, SR Slovenia, Yugoslavia), known as Magnifico, is one of the most celebrated Serbian-Slovenian singers.
Pešut's ancestors were "USKOKI" Serbian frontier guards who separated Christian-practising territory from the Ottoman Empire in a region of modern Croatia. His musical path started with music group U'redu, with whom he recorded his first album, Let's dance (1992). After that, he embarked on a solo career, recording six albums in twelve years. Many of his songs have become a key part of Slovenian music history. Some of them are Silvija (participating on Slovenia's pre-selection for Eurovision 1998), Kdo je čefur, 24.000 poljubov and Hir aj kam hir aj go (the latter also being a hit in some other countries such as Italy and the former Yugoslav republics).
Throughout his career, he has combined disco, Balkan, funk and electronic music, creating a new and successful style. He has collaborated with other Slovenian groups, such as Sestre, and most recently Turbolentza, another Slovenian band. The band is featured in his latest music video, 'Giv mi mani'.
Magnifico's controversial dressing style, performances, and quotes have gained him fame and notoriety in Slovenia and in other countries as well.
Magnifico is currently on a contract with Sony.
He has also starred in Slovenian movies, such as Stereotip, Kajmak in marmelada, Poker and Porno film.
