MBD RESPONDS TO THE CIGARETTE TUMULT: “I Could Not Sing”

After the controversy that developed following his departure from a stage last week, Mordechai Ben David spoke about the incident on a live broadcast of Menachem Toker’s radio show in Israel.

“It’s an embarrassing story,” said MBD succinctly.

He explained: “I was invited to a beautiful event, and I did the first music set, during which I sang some slower songs. I kept saying, ‘I’m suffocating. I cannot sing.’ But someone was smoking in front of me and it bothered me. I could not keep singing. It was stuffy and it hindered me. I asked again and again and they did not stop. So I said, if that’s the case, laylah tov, good night. I thought that if I would step off, they would stop, but they did not. The producer of the event finally said that he did not think the people would stop smoking, so we would just complete the show another time. ”

MBD added: “I always ask the sound engineers at these events not to smoke, and they respect the request.”

About his visit current to Israel, he remarked: “I came here for a simcha and I stayed to work with Mona Rosenblum on a new project. I also have work with Yitzy Berry and Eli Klein. I hope immediately after the Yomim Tovim to come out with a new album.”

  1. Such a shame, but totally understandable. Never mind singing, MBD probably couldn’t breathe. So sad that one person ruined it for everyone!

  2. Boruch hashem someone finally stood up to these disgusting folks that smell up everything they come in contact with.

  3. Smoking Kills!!!
    The Idiot who smoked at the show killed it for the rest of the oilom. The crowd should have beaten him up. Maybe then he will have learned his lesson and stop smoking.
