When you are all sweaty and hustling on the dusty streets of Juba looking for a 100 dollar from the black market dealers but can’t get it because of the scarcity of dollars. Bul Cornelio Koryom, a son to Central Bank Governor and his “groups” are allegedly spending a whopping 1.5 million dollars to get veteran Congolese musician Koffi Olomide to perform in Juba for a day coming mid-April.
Rumours have been circulating on social media last week of the news after, South Sudan veteran journalist posted it on social media and Junubin on social media are outraged condemning the alleged initiative.
“These people are crazy. They even do not speak French and are paying to listen French (Lingala) music. what is the impact?”, a Junubi posted on Facebook.
While others considered the deal as money laundering and looting of the country resources by the wealthy elites while thousands are in dire need of food and shelter.
“That’s really unbelievable. Our people are really disappointing, I doubt if they knew how many lives that the money being offered to Koffi Olamide can save”, posted pissed Junubi.
HIJ were not able to confirm the alleged deal, but photos circulating on social media suggest Bul Koryiom with his “groups” indeed met Koffi Olomide as seen in the pic below.
