Online poll suggests refund from concert

You will know by now that last Saturday’s platinum artists were a no show as advertised for the concert featuring Shyne, the Music Ambassador and son of the P.M.  The buzz was that the mega concert was a pre-release party for his latest album, where two surprise artists would perform. Thousands of persons paid fifty dollars for each ticket, Shyne showed up, but the surprise platinum artists were nowhere to be found. The question was posed if patrons should get a refund. Seventy-nine percent of those polled were in favor of a refund while twenty one percent said no. One viewer commented that those who bought tickets should get their money back or “there should be a second, replacement concert as advertised.”

    Belize start bring in some Soca stars and fe get the hiphop thing. Stick with our Carribean sound it is much sweeter and these artists needs the attention. Let the Americans have their thing.
    Power to Carribean!

    Ha, Ha, Ha Belizeans claim that they’re poor, and gas is too high, agree. And that they’re afraid to leave their homes at night because of crime. But they can be out at night 4:00 pm in the morning, and spend $50.00 for a concert ticket. Belizeans are totally confused. Who is crying poor now….

    Last Saturday Belizeans get ‘shyned’; This Saturday some folks in Detroit got ‘Sheened’. Both groups are asking for refunds. Both groups knew they were going to see a washed out rapper in one case and a washed out actor in the other case. Yet they invested their hard earned money anyway. No wonder actors and rappers are super rich and people who really work hard to advance science and technology (scientiest and technicians) to make the world a better place can barely make ends meet. Humans really have their priorities in the wrong place. No wonder humanity is fading and fading real fast. Alas.

    “Belizeans are totally confused” this is wrong to say for most of the people that attended were from the city of Belize and they werent the poor they are working class,whenever you hear the cry of being poor its mostly a front from the politicians and”MAYBE THIS WILL TEACH THEM FOOLS A LESSON”..what and whom are you talking about? a scam is a scam and it works on genuine people,most of the people that see a scam are sometimes scammers themselves ,I mean look at this poll,I havent met anyone asking for money back obviously they arent poor enough,Ive seen poor people from other countries kill and loot for a scrap of bread.So I agree that the ones in charge of the concert should compensate but we are not FOOLS nor CONFUSED.

    A new word has been added to THE BELIZEAN VOCABULARY………”SHYNED”.

    The VERB….. To Shyne

    To be “shyned” is to be hoodwinked or deceived. To shyne is to promise with inuendo and not deliver.

    e.g. Johnny shyned Mark ten dollars for an empty box.
    Mark felt shyned when he opened the box.
