BUCHAREST, ROMANIA – With many local media reporting about the oikotimes.com story upon Voltaj and their non-participation in the annual Brussels promo, supported by the La Maison Culturelle Belgo-Roumaine (ARTHIS) in Brussels: ELE.ro, ZIUANEWS.ro, DIVAHAIR.ro, CLICK.ro, AgentiaDepresaMondena.com, ROPORTAL.ro, we are obliged to present you the answers from the Romanian entrants and the Romanian diaspora given kindly to oikotimes.com
We have never ever talked about any fee for our Eurovision related concerts, we’ve never ever even brought in discussion a remuneration of any sort for our promotional performances. The only topic of our conversation was related to our technical request which will ensure a good live performance. It is not about asking a fee, it’s about the instruments, about the technician team behind our shows, and moreover, it’s about the quality of our show. We truthfully respect our co-nationals living abroad, and our song “All Over Again” is dedicated to them all. (read the full answer here)
The oikotimes.com team also received an email by ARTHIS in which they refuse the information given to our previous post regarding Voltaj and their participation in the event, with an official letter which technically up to this moment was not able for us to copy the exact text in which they state that the information in our post are false and they need to clear things out to avoid damaging the image of the Romanian community in Belgium. We would like to thank Ms Carmen Draghici for submitting the letter.
Nevertheless we would like to state, as oikotimes.com, that information came to us by two secure sources who spoke to an ARTHIS official executive directly during the event. It was never our intention to harm Voltaj we just presented what those two sources told us (actually separately and without knowing each other! In case the whole story is a misunderstanding we really feel sorry but some people should be careful to whom they are giving information in the very end!
