  1. And not for that was jazz a success. And to top it off, the bald headed Foruna blaming locals for
    jazz beig the failure that it was.

    Like the post before me said “wake me up in the day of elections”.

  2. how much did it cost us ? since you said 14 million was way too much and you are cutting cost and making better… much did you all spend for the 3 jazz festival so far?/

  3. Are you telling me that success is measurd by the number and type of foreign media agencies present at those events? One day soon, lucians will piss back in Fortuna’s eyes and tell her its Chairman’s.

  4. Gasson, I here ee. I wasted my money and time. I eh saying that I will never be back for jazz. I jus saying tings have to be different.
