Victor Manuelle reacts to the Mayor’s open letter:
In an open letter published on Twitter, Victor Manuelle stated he hadn’t meant to cause offence.
“I would never be capable of deliberately offending anyone, let alone Medellin, the city which has given me so much love throughout my career,” he said.

In previous statements he has denied promoting gender violence with lyrics such as “I’m going to give it hard to you the way Chris did to Rihanna”, recalling the star’s 2009 assault at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, insisting the song is about an intense love relationship.
