But today should not be the last Qatar scandal – and the day before the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup…

Now a video of Maluma, the singer of the official World Cup anthem, has surfaced. The musician canceled an interview on Israeli television due to a question about his role at the World Cup in Qatar. “You are rude,” Maluma told a reporter from public broadcaster Kan.

He asked him if his musical contribution to the World Cup was ignoring the situation in the country. While other stars did not want to lend their music to the football event due to the problematic human rights situation in the host country.

Colombia’s Maluma contributes the song “Tukoh Taka” for the 2022 FIFA World Cup featuring American rapper Nicki Minaj and Myriam Fares. The musicians should also perform live in Qatar on Saturday.

“I just came to enjoy life, to enjoy football and a football party.” Maluma said this in an interview on Friday, from which he left visibly upset.

The interview was to be broadcast in its entirety on Israeli television this Saturday. Now it’s spreading across the internet.
