New Straits Times - - News -

PU­TRA­JAYA: The Na­tional Trans­for­ma­tion 2050 (TN50) di­a­logue ses­sion be­tween Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak and en­ter­tain­ment play­ers be­came tense when a mi­nor scuf­fle broke out be­tween pro­ducer David Teo and co­me­dian Su­laiman Yassin.

It hap­pened when Teo was seen quite harsh in ad­dress­ing the crowd be­fore the prime min­is­ter.

He ques­tioned ac­tor Datuk Rosyam Nor who was mod­er­at­ing the di­a­logue be­cause he failed to see those seated be­hind the stage.

The pro­gramme aired live via Face­book Live, saw Rosyam ask­ing Teo to calm down as his be­hav­iour could be seen as dis­re­spect­ful to the prime min­is­ter.

Rosyam asked Teo to share his views and Teo shared his poem. How­ever, be­fore he could fin­ish, Su­laiman, also known as Mat Over, stood up and headed to­wards Teo when things got phys­i­cal.

The se­cu­rity per­son­nel pulled them apart and the di­a­logue ses­sion con­tin­ued as sched­uled.

At the end of the di­a­logue, Rosyam called on the two to rec­on­cile.

The prime min­is­ter was seen stand­ing up and ges­tur­ing to the duo to make up. The duo apol­o­gised to each other and shook hands be­fore Na­jib.
