Jomari Yllana wants to bring Justin Bieber to Manila


Aside from being an actor, like being part of the cast of the top-rating action series Imortal, Jomari Yllana is also busy with his work as a concert producer. He was behind the Manila shows of international acts like Kris Allen, David Cook, David Archuleta, Marie Digby, Usher, and John Mayer. After the press conference for Imortal, PUSH.com.ph asked Jomari whom he planned to bring in next. He said, "Sa totoo lang wala pa kaming naka-line up. But if I alone were to choose kung sino ang gusto ko, si Justin Bieber." Justin is a 16-year-old Canadian singer who had smash hits like "One Time," "Baby," and "Somebody to Love."

Jomari was also asked to comment on the rumor that recently came out regarding John Mayer'rsquo;s stay in Manila. A report claimed that John had trashed his hotel suite, but the management of the hotel quickly denied the incident had happened. Jomari commented, "Hindi ko alam 'lsquo;yun. That I have to check, to confirm. But I don'rsquo;t think it'rsquo;s true kasi hindi naman nakarating sa akin."

Still Jomari is very thankful that John Mayer'rsquo;s concert turned out to be a success. "Hindi ko siya nasundo sa airport. Kumita naman. Buti nandiyan ang Channel V. I give credits to the staff the Channel V because sila naman 'lsquo;yung nagasikaso ng lahat."

He also talked about his business partner for his concert production ventures, Representative Ronald Singson who is facing drug-possession charges in Hong Kong. The actor said that he will continue to do business with the controversial political scion and he has plans of visiting him in Hong Kong. "He'rsquo;s okay. He is handling 'lsquo;yung businesses niya remotely from Hong Kong. Kausap ko lang siya kanina, kinakamusta ko. Text at email pa rin kami. Ibinalita ko sa kanya na maganda 'lsquo;yung nangyari sa John Mayer concert, maganda 'lsquo;yung pasok ng bago kong show (Imortal), and last shooting day ko ng Pe'ntilde;afrancia kahapon. Masaya 'lsquo;yung usap namin. I'rsquo;m supposed to visit him very soon kasi tapos na 'lsquo;yung movie at may break ako from Imortal so pwede akong magbakasyon, magpahinga. Hindi ko pa alam kung kailan. I have to fix my schedule muna. I can'rsquo;t leave right away."

Ever since Singson'rsquo;s drug case broke out, Jomari had not had the chance to talk to his friend about the truth behind the controversy. Jomari preferred to wait for the time when they can seriously discuss the matter personally as good friends. "To tell you honestly hindi ko siya kinakausap about sa kaso niya or anything connected with it. Gusto ko kapag magkausap kami, kinukulit ko lang siya, pinapatawa ko lang. Dumating man 'lsquo;yung time na makaharap ko na siya dun ko lang siya makakausap about sa nangyari sa kanya. Maganda kung harapan. Pero sa ngayon wala pang [chance]. Mabigat din naman 'lsquo;yung pangyayari. Ang hirap din naman mag-judge ng tao. Kung tatanungin niyo ako kung alam ko 'lsquo;yung buong i
