Ajamu Nyomba replied to Claude Gonzales's discussion KEITH DIAZ is a WICKED MAN!!! To tie up the Pan Players money in the courts because of his own avarice is a crime. And with all the education Dr. Dolly has, she lacks EMPATHY!
"Another indication that Keith Diaz and his cronies are WICKED is that Diaz used the collection of gate receipts by the NCC as an excuse for cancelling the Champs in Concert show.   My understanding is that the NCC is collecting the gate…"
