Low Taek Jho aka Jho Low, “a close associate of Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor”, had dinner with Psy in a Korean restaurant in Tanjung Tokong hours after the global superstar had performed at Han Chiang.
This was revealed in a news report by Malaysiakini.
Thanks to blog reader andi for the following heads up on the video link showing Psy, escorted by bodyguards, arriving at the Korean restaurant at just before 5.00pm on 11 February, less than five hours after performing at Han Chiang.
And this is a tweet from someone with the handle jho_low denying that he footed the bill for the Psy gig:
@eric_kslaw Bro, where u hear that from? Usual spin again. 100% Psy I did not pay for. Just bcause pergi makan also ppl wanna say me!

So who paid for the show then? Why so ‘shy’ to reveal the actual sponsor? Usually, sponsors would be proud to be associated with a mega-celebrity like Psy. But no, not in this case. Nonetheless, we can make an educated guess.
The news comes as a Gerakan politician and the Penang CPO have spoken about a threat to the life of the Korean performer, leaving many Malaysians feeling incredulous at the ‘shocking’ revelation.
If the threat was indeed real, why did the PM appear so relaxed and unaware of it when he was on stage? Did anyone inform him and his entourage of BN leaders and if so, when?
