A rumor has been circulating on Chinese social media since January 14 that Hong Kong-based singer Hins Cheung has been removed from the fifth season of the Chinese mainland singing competition show I Am A Singer.
According to an article by writer Zhao Liangchen posted on news site qingnianli on January 14 and reposted by the Central Committee of the China Communist Youth League (CCYL) later that day http://www.teamnhlhurricanesshop.com/Teuvo-Teravainen-Jersey/ , Cheung had originally appeared in posters promoting this season that were posted on the show's Sina Weibo account as late as January 9. Cheung also confirmed on Sina Weibo on that same day that he would be joining the show.
However, on January 13 this material was removed, according to entertainment news site Fenghuang Entertainment.
On January 14, Sina Weibo user Mangguo Nühanzi http://www.teamnhlhurricanesshop.com/Sebastian-Aho-Jersey/ , a TV critic, claimed that Cheung's scenes and songs were being cut from the first episode of the season, which is scheduled to debut on Saturday.
Though there haven't been any official responses from either Cheung or the show about the rumor, many suspect the rumored removal may be related to accusations that the singer had previously made remarks on social media platforms supporting members of Hong Kong's illegal "Occupy Central" movement.
Born in Guangzhou http://www.teamnhlhurricanesshop.com/Scott-Darling-Jersey/ , capital of South China's Guangdong Province, in 1981, Cheung rose to fame with his 2002 hit "Break Point," and later moved to Hong Kong to continue his career. The past few years has witnessed Cheung grow into an influential Cantopop singer.
However http://www.teamnhlhurricanesshop.com/Rod-Brindamour-Jersey/ , the singer's political leanings lead to a backlash from mainland netizens, with many accusing him of supporting "Hong Kong independence."
For instance, the same day he announced that he would be joining I Am A Singer, he wrote another post on Sina Weibo defending himself against accusations slamming him as "a supporter of Hong Kong independence."
"Words and materials were made up to label me as a supporter of 'Hong Kong independence http://www.teamnhlhurricanesshop.com/Noah-Hanifin-Jersey/ ,'" Cheung wrote. "I want to reaffirm that I am Chinese and definitely not a supporter of 'Hong Kong independence.'"
However, the article reposted by CCYL provides what it claims are screenshots of Cheung's posts on Facebook voicing support for advocates of "Hong Kong independence."
In 2014, the singer also appeared in a video along with other local Hong Kong artists singing a Cantonese adaptation of the Les Miserables song "Do You Hear the People Sing?"
Discussions about the rumor have run rampant on social media platforms.
In comments under the latest post on Cheung's Facebook dated January 9, which features him in a poster for I Am A Singer http://www.teamnhlhurricanesshop.com/Martin-Necas-Jersey/ , many of Cheung's fans still voiced support for him, accusing those attacking Cheung online of "Internet violence," while other fans expressed disappointment about the singer's statement made earlier that day that he did not support "Hong Kong independence."
This is not the first time that Cheung has been rumored to be removed from the show. According to a Xinhua News Agency report in 2015, Cheung opted out the fourth season of I Am A Singer due to "personal reasons."
CAPE TOWN， Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Tuesday rejected allegations that it allocated 50 million rand (about 3.7 million U.S. dollars) for a "covert campaign" against opposition parties during the 2016 local government election.
"We further reject any allegation that the organisation owes any monies to any companies purporting to run such clandestine campaign，" the ANC said in a statement.
It came after claims by public relations consultant Sihle Bolani that she was part of a team called the War Room tasked with disempowering the Democratic Alliance (DA) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) election campaigns and setting a pro-ANC agenda in the media. Its jobs reportedly involved printing fake posters of EFF leader Julius Malema with a gun.
Bolani has opened a case with police after being threatened and sued the ANC for over 2 million rand over her involvement in the campaign before the municipal elections in August last year.
But on Tuesday， the South Gauteng High Court dismissed Bolani's application with costs.
In defense， ANC national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said the party has always been and remains committed to running clean campaigns in all the elections it has participated in since 1994.
"We welcome that we have been vindicated in this matter" by the court， Kodwa said， adding the party does not need clandestine "black ops" to woo voters.
Kodwa said Bolani and other people were not contracted or mandated by the ANC or any of its structures tasked with the communications work in the 2016 Local Government Election.
"Their activities were not sanctioned by the ANC and consequently， we distance ourselves against any insinuation that any such campaign was known to or approved by the African National Congress，" said Kodwa.
The 2016 local election， the most fierce since 1994 when apartheid was brought to an end， marked the greatest setback for the ANC that lost some major metropolitans like Johannesburg， Pretoria and the Nelson Mandela Bay to opposition parties.
Look back at the history of the modern Olympics and hundreds of British names feature in the annals.
