If you’ve been hearing rumours about Ronan Keating here in Sabah, you heard right. This afternoon, KKMOI attended a press conference where Ronan was queried before his exclusive performance tonight at the private dinner function that costs RM1,000 per head to attend.
Ronan was asked several questions ranging from why he has chosen to come to Sabah to support MERC’s Giant Clam programme, to other types of charity projects he has been and is involved in.
He was very passionate about the fact that as an artiste, he should use his voice as a celebrity (not just his singing voice) to spread the message that Giant Clams are going extinct. Ronan expressed a genuine concern and that he is happy to be “spreading the word” not just in Sabah, but that he hopes to take the message home to the U.K. and to Europe. He also seemed serious when he half-joked about being an ambassador for Giant Clams.
In answer to a question posted by Joanna Funk of Sabah Songs, Ronan shares that he will be playing one song from his “When Ronan Met Burt” album tonight, and a few more on the main event tomorrow. After the press conference, Ronan proceeded to plant a coral!
To end the press meet session, Ronan signs the MERC guest book before departing Gayana Eco Resort (where MERC is) to the event venue Bunga Raya Resort. If you wish to attend tomorrow’s Beach Party event (22nd April 2012), tickets can be purchased at the Gayana office at Jesselton Point for RM200 per person.
