PM's son ehrowing his weight around in S'pore

Controversy over yet another member of Najib’s family

YOURSAY | ‘Norashman thought he is in Bolehland, but Singapore is a different...’
CQ Muar: Aide to PM’s wife Rizal Mansor, don't be too hasty to defend your boss' son with lame excuses. We understand your job is to speak on behalf of Rosmah Mansor, but don’t presume we are dumb.
You claim Norashman Najib is acknowledged for his skill and talent in handling the turntable, which raised questions on whether you actually know what the fuss is all about.
Norashman was perhaps trying to push his weight around in Singapore as a Malaysian PM's son. Wrong place and wrong people to show off, I'm afraid. Not in Singapore, anyway.
RM2.6 Billion Turkey Haram: If there is no truth to this incident, Fadi Wassef Naguib (Fila) would have just sign off for the day and hand over to Norashman gracefully.
When it is revealed that Zouk is owned by Genting, it is not surprising that such an incident took place.
Many children of Malaysian VVIPs are known to have thrown their weight around locally or internationally, especially if the organisations or institutions have Malaysian connections.
More importantly, why did Norashman frequent such a place, one which is shunned by Muslims here? Or maybe, when overseas, different rules apply.
When a poor Muslim eking out a small income in an outlet selling beer, the ulama were up in arms, forcing him to quit the job.
So now, what have the ulama got to say about the PM’s son frequenting such a place?
Res Ipsa: Yes, I wonder what Ashman was drinking at Zouk, teh tarik or some bottle of vintage liquor? Don't these clubs survive on the sale of expensive alcoholic drinks?
There is no need to be a rocket scientist to figure out why Zouk had to take good care of its VVIP customer.
By the way, if Ashman really wanted to show off his turntable skills as the finishing act, what is the harm in waiting until the DJs have completed their performance?
I am also wondering what was the response from the crowd when Ashman took over from the DJs.
The boy would certainly have got a dressing-down from Najib Razak for making matters worse for the embattled PM.
JD Lovrenciear: Can someone please tell the world why is an employee on the government's payroll (as aide to the PM's wife) taking time and effort to speak in defence of the son of the PM?
 
Myrights: What Rizal said is hearsay as he was not at the club personally. In the court of law, his statement would be inadmissible.
Fila (Fadi Wassef Naguib) was there, so who do you trust more? If you watch the video, you can see the clubbers' reaction too.
Fair&Just: Remember? Even the in-laws used Najib’s name to intimidate a bag seller in the US. What's not to believe?

The dance floor at Zouk Singapore cleared within five minutes after Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's son Norashman started his set on the turntable.
This is according to a freelance DJ, who was present at the club last Saturday when DJ Fila, who is one half of popular Egyptian trance duo Aly & Fila, was purportedly told to stop playing in order for Norashman to take the stage.
"The 'VIP guest' (Norashman) started his set with a classic trance song.
"After that, it sounded like radio hits and all of Fila's fans pretty much left the club," the 27-year-old freelance DJ, identified only as Nuwan, told Singapore's New Paper.
"It was a privilege to have Fila play his set here, but instead, he was asked to share the stage with an amateur. This is truly a disgrace to the music community in Singapore," he added.
Relating what transpired, another avid trance music fan Ray said he saw a group of people gathering behind the DJ booth at about 3.30am.
"One of them spoke to Fila. After about 10 minutes, he was spoken to again and he didn't look pleased at all. He then grabbed the microphone and told the crowd that this was his last track," said the financial analyst.
"Initially, we didn't know what was going on but halfway through, we realised that he was being told to end his set and it was followed by lots of jeering.
"Almost everyone in the club was there just to hear Fila play his set but we were so shocked that he was chucked to the side just because some 'VIP guest' wanted to play," he added.
Zouk regular Henry Soh, 45, said he saw the DJ storming out of the club immediately after.
"I wasn't happy with the way Fila's set ended. What was Zouk's management thinking when they disrupted a guest DJ's set just for a VIP?" he said, adding that he left after Norashman took over.
The incident became viral on social media when a video showing a furious DJ Fila telling the crowd that he has been told to stop his set for a prime minister's son started circulating.
However, in a statement issued later, Zouk Singaporedenied that DJ Fila was interrupted midway during their performance.
"Following up from our previous announcement pertaining to Aly & Fila's gig at Zouk on Saturday night, Zouk would like to clarify that DJ Fadi (Fila) was not at any point of time asked to end his set prematurely before the contracted set end time of 3.30am," it said.
Rizal Mansor, the aide to Norashman's mother Rosmah Mansor, also denied that the prime minister's son had forced DJ Fila to stop his set.
He said Norashman did not ask to perform at Zouk Singapore but went to the club on an invitation.
In a Facebook posting later, DJs Aly and Fila maintained that they were asked to stop their set to make way for Norashman.
Zouk was acquired by conglomerate Genting Hong Kong (Genting HK) last year for an undisclosed amount. While it is headquartered and listed in Hong Kong, with a secondary listing in Singapore, Genting HK is an affiliate of Malaysian conglomerate Genting Group, which Genting Singapore is a part of.
The PM family should buy a club just for their son to play his "DJ skills", with so many billions acquired from taxpayers money!!!
