Bosnia and Herzegovina still in the race
Just two days ago, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s participations at the upcoming Eurovision was put in doubt after an altercation involving members of the group erupted during Deen’s birthday party. Reportedly, Jala was involved in a scuffle with Almir Ajanovic, the composer of “Ljubav je”.
The incident attracted intense media coverage, and at one point Bosnia and Herzegovina’s participation in Eurovision 2016 was said to be in doubt.
But broadcaster BHRT and the team reunited and an agreement was reached: Almir Ajanovic would not be part of the delegation going to Stockholm in May.
Almir issue a statement apologising for his actions, saying it was due to combining alcohol with prescription medication. He accepted that stepping down from his position in Stockholm would be for the benefit of the team.
Deen was quick to take to Twitter to reassure his fans that everything was OK and that the team was still united.
