Manana Japaridze's profile page states her country as "Georgia":
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/manana-lyrics.html

Based on the first comment in the discussion section, I figure that the singer was originally shown as being from Azerbaijan but this was edited following RadixIce's suggestion.

In reality, Manana Japaridze is an Azerbaijani singer. Although she was born in Georgia, she left that country in the 1990s, while still a teenager, and has lived in Azerbaijan ever since. Upon inquiring as to why RadixIce considers Manana a Georgian singer, she replied that "Manana's roots are from Georgia", which, as far as I know, does not presuppose being a Georgian singer (many of us have roots in countries that we have little to do with).

As for Manana, she:
1. is a citizen of Azerbaijan (and not of Georgia)
2. is living and working in Azerbaijan (and not in Georgia)
3. sings almost exclusively in Azeri (and very rarely in Georgian)
4. has albums that have been recorded and produced in Azerbaijan (and not in Georgia)
5. is an Honorary Artist of Azerbaijan (and not of Georgia)
6. has previously represented Azerbaijan (and not Georgia) in international competitions

I believe this is sufficient to consider her a singer from Azerbaijan, which is why I propose changing her country information back to Azerbaijan.

[@callmevilg] before editing any artist information that was edited by an editor or a moderator earlier contact the editor or the moderator, please. I'll change it again.

@322395062 I see no point in trying to explain things here but anyways. I said she was a georgian who lived in Georgia for many years and who moved to Azerbaijan afterwards.
Secondly, as stated here public discussion of moderators' actions is prohibited, if you do not agree with a moderator's action then take it to the admins,please.

I am not discussing "a moderator's action", I am discussing a content-related issue (which you yourself raised in Manana's comment section and based on your comment, this was before you were a moderator).
Manana did not "live in Georgia for many years" - she lived there until she was 19 and was not a singer back then. She is now 40 and her musical career (this page is about a singer, may I remind) has been associated exclusively with Azerbaijan.
