The interviewer was insistent on asking the singer if he was covering up any violation of Human Rights by participating in Qatar 2022.
In the video, which lasts about a minute, ‘Papi Juancho’ appears in front of the journalist Moav Vardi, from the Israeli television channel Kan TV, who questioned the Colombian’s participation in the World Cup despite the fact that other artists such as Dua Lipa and Shakira They rejected the offer due to Qatar’s bad reputation in terms of Human Rights.

“Yes, it is something that I cannot solve, I only came here to enjoy life, enjoy soccer and the soccer party. It’s not something I really have to get involved in. I am here enjoying my music and the beautiful life”, expressed the artist.
However, the presenter remained firm and insistent in his question, and even questioned Juan Luis Londoño Arias, the Colombian’s first name, if his presence in the World Cup somehow covered up the violation of Human Rights that constantly occurs. in the middle eastern country.
“Why do I have to answer that question?” Maluma sentenced, visibly upset, and seeing that the presenter continued to make comments on the subject, he decided to get up and leave the set, calling the interviewer “rude.”
“I think that’s what people say, it’s how people think,” explained the Israeli journalist, who in the end was unable to get the reggaeton player to return.
