'Best leader'

An Aroha was shocked, "Wait so you mean Jinjin approached that fishing show?????? Wtf Fantagio. CAN'T MY MAN GET ATLEAST ONE APPEARANCE OR GUESTING?? Absolutely doing nothing for him. They are already in a big loss by hiding jinjin's talent. IDK I'M SO DONE WITH THAT COMPANY NOW." One fan wrote, "Jinjin deserves so much more." Another Aroha flexed, "Jinjin isn't just "the best leader". He's literally an amazing dancer, a great musician, he made bop ass smacking lickin good songs, he gives soul to astro's song like yk it's astro's song if you hear jinjin's voice in it, an absolute crazy rapper with his unique voice.."

One fan tweeted, "I feel so sad that Jinjin had to do this on his own fanmu stop holding him up." Another Aroha posted, "Jinjin deserves better. And I'm not only talking about fantagio. It's easy to always blame the company but some arohas need to support him more. I saw many "let's support"engage jinjin" today and the views still doesn't increase. It's easy to talk and act like you care here ..." One added, "It has been SIX YEARS. Why does Jinjin have to beg (for a year?!) to be on a fishing show? I have so much to say about this, but Fanta better start capitalizing on his talents immediately and y'all need to start hyping him too."
