"Would help Håkan"

– on the other hand, there was a cursor, a historical thing, that we are doing this at the same time right now. And partly it was that I would help Håkan. This would be my single. Then you could as well as namedroppa Håkan all the time in interviews to help him.
But Håkan Hellström needed no help. His slice was more listened to than Magnus Carlson.

It sounds like you begrudge him that?
– Yes, a thousand million, stjärnstopp times. Håkan is the best I know.
