Deputy Mayor of Prague Petra Kolínská (Green Party) proposed on Tuesday that the Romani singer Radek Banga be given the Award of the Capital City of Prague for his many years of activity aiming to prevent risky behavior in youth and for his open stance against hate music. "The atmosphere in society has become tense recently, the language of hatred is beginning to become more and more the norm, even outside of online social networks," she posted to her Facebook profile.

"The musician Radek Banga is doing his best to combat this, and not only through his art. For many years he has contributed to the project called 'You Can Do It if You Want' which focuses on preventing risky behavior among youth, and he collaborates on many charity events. For his brave performance against hateful music he is facing intimidation and threats today. For that reason and many others I have proposed today that the Award of the Capital City of Prague be bestowed upon him. I am convinced that he deserves this today as few others do," Kolínská said.
