I heard that popular politician and mega star “real star” Dayasiri Jayasekar’a brother is a famous singer. I am sorry, as I have been living in USA for more than ten years, I do not know about Dayasiri’s brother. Can anyone tell me more about Dayasiri Jayasekara’s family. P.S. I like Dayasiri Jayasekara both as a politician and as a singer. I thought he would win the Mega Star award. Anyway I take this opportunity to wish Dayasiri “good luck ” in his political career. I wish he become the national organizer of United National Party soon.
