For his part, the Colombian Maluma, who recorded a song for this World Cup, was interviewed on Israeli television by one of its main figures, Moav Vardi, who questioned him regarding his position on human rights in that nation and this was his reaction.
“Yes, I understand, but it is something that I cannot solve, I only came here to enjoy life, enjoy football and the football (soccer) party”, mentions the interpreter of “Happy four”.

“This is something that does not have to be related to (human rights problems), I come here to enjoy my music and play soccer too,” adds the urban music star.
The interviewer insists on asking about his presence in the World Cup and Juan Luis Londoño Arias, the singer’s real name, makes a displeased face, “I understand, but do I have to answer that question”, to immediately stand up and leave.
The Colombian team points out to Vardi that he was rude and the singer stands up, leaving him alone in front of the cameras
The Colombian’s reaction has definitely generated opinions regarding his response, so through his Instagram account he published a story in which he mentions: “If some did not want to come, it is their problem, but I am here facing reality and carrying light to the whole world.”
The one from Medellín will premiere the song “Tukoh taka” made in collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Myriam Fares from Trinidad. So far Qatar has not presented the celebrity poster that will be at the opening ceremony of this World Cup after great figures that have been talked about in recent weeks have distanced themselves from the largest soccer tournament on the globe.
