My son attended the festival . He told me most of the people that were there were present at this event were deported Woyanes who are involved in illegal drug using and drug dealing . Some even went to promise that they will find them obedient homemaker wives and husbands if they invest in the Woyane businesses. The middlemen that are trying to print a destorted picture about the truth at the ground were also . From what I heard the whole event were full of people that were trying to suck the diasporas dry .
