Psy's management says M'sian Govt did not pay for Penang performance
KUALA LUMPUR: South Korean megastar Psy's recent performance in Penang was not paid for by the Malaysian Government, said his management firm, Scooter Braun Projects.
The company that manages K-pop sensation Psy of Gangnam Style fame stated Wednesday that they had never been engaged or paid by the Government.
In a statement, the management stressed that news and articles circulating on the internet suggesting otherwise were pure conjecture and manifestly untrue.
"Scooter Braun Projects wishes to categorically state that we have never been engaged or paid by the Malaysian Government for the artiste's recent performance in Penang, Malaysia," said the statement Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak clarified that the performance by Psy at the 1Malaysia Chinese New Year Open House did not involve any public money.
He also said the public was not charged a fee to watch the artiste.
Psy's show was one of the highlights of the well-attended event organised by Penang Barisan Nasional at Han Chiang School field last Monday. - Bernama
