Castillo, first in the photo, was the protagonist of the part of the video filmed in Havana.

He was the great absentee of a night that, according to he told his friends, could have been “among the most beautiful of his life”.

Cuban rapper Maykel Castillo, Osorbo, was unable to attend the Latin Grammy gala on Thursday in Las Vegas, in which “Patria y vida”, the song in which he participates and which has become one of those anthems. oppose the government of Cuba, won two awards: Best Urban Song and Song of the Year.

Castillo’s absence was not due to the United States denying him a visa to enter the country, as has happened with some Cuban artists who have been nominated on previous occasions.

The rebellious rapper could not attend because he has been imprisoned since last May in a maximum security prison in Cuba, accused of “attack, public disorder and evasion” after participating in several protests against the government.
