I was thinking about Jojo today, just popped into my head. I met Jojo through my best friend when I was younger.

Might have been more than 20-25 years ago. Got into a little club night promoting with him for a short time. Anyways, I met Sweet Micky one night at his second floor residence in Rosedale (just facts for validations).

Didn't matter that I couldn't understand a word he was saying (I'm just a white kid from Long Island) but he seemed like a nice guy. I was just curious how Jojo was doing.

I still see he has his TV show, which I've also been to the studio and Cafe Wha afterwards in which he took us out. He loved that place.

I do not understand, how Martelly can leave JoJo Lorquet in Prison.

They have been friends for over 15 years.

It only goes to prove that Martelly will throw anyone under the bus. If JoJo was actually doing anything that was wrong, how is it his best friend does not know anything or was not himself involved.

JoJo and I are related.
