It's really sad to see the filth of Malaysian politics spilling over to tarnish even the world of music. Unfortunately, it's not a simple matter of corporate greed pulling the rug from under the arts. Petronas is a state owned company thus they follow a decades long (since 1969 actually) practice of appointing people to important positions not based on their ability to do the job well but instead on race, religion and how good they are in following orders from the top. These orders are usually driven by the all important motives of staying in power and lining their pockets.
I'm sorry if this sounds like a political rant, but I must tell you that being an ethic minority in this country i've always had the sh*t end of the stick shoved on me.
