Bosnia & Herzegovina: Composer withdraws from Eurovision team after severe incident

Yesterday, the Bosnian media reported the team for Eurovision 2016 was in the middle of a crisis due to a fight happened during the Deen’s birthday party. Now, BHRT has published an official press release announcing the withdrawal of Almir Ajanovic, the attacker, from this year’s Bosnian delegation.

According to some on-line newspapers, Ajanovic, the composer of Ljubav Je, got into a fight with Jala (the rapper), Dalal Midhat (lead vocalist) and the singer Sacir Ameti. All three artists were injured by Almir, Jala ended up with nose injuries while Sacir was hit with a bottle. After this, Dalal was hit by Almir when she was trying to talk to him after the previous fight. Apparently, the composer was under the alcohol effects and Sacir, who is planning to sue Almir, almost lost one of his eyes during the incident.

After this, the Bosnian head of delegation stated:

“I am shocked by this news!”, stated the Bosnian head of delegation Lejla Babovic, who was in a business travel. “All possible options are completely open, including a withdrawal from Eurovision 2016”, she added.

There is no reason to worry about now, Dalal & Deen feat. Ana Rucner and Jala will perform the song Ljubav Je, composed by Amir Sacir, in the first semi-final of Eurovision 2016.
