After the mishap suffered two weeks ago at the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria carnival, it seems that the singer Manny Manuel will have a second chance with the Spanish islands on March 30th.
According to his representative in Spain, Carlos Zerolo, the merenguero would appear at Carnaval Güímar, in Tenerife, but they are still negotiating the conditions.
When confirming the information to the newspaper La Opinión de Tenerife, the mayor of the municipality of Güímar, Carmen Luisa Castro Dorta, stressed that the Puerto Rican artist deserves a “second chance”.
“The Canaries are a very united people and we have a big heart. Manny Manuel is an international artist who is going through some bad times and has already asked for forgiveness for what happened at the Carnival in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Therefore, and after the actions planned in the Carnivals of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Puerto de la Cruz had been canceled, Güímar decided to offer his carnival stage to give him another chance, “Castro Dorta told the Spanish media.
Manny Manuel and the mayor will offer next Monday a press conference in which they will give details of the event.
The interpreter of “Estrellita” climbed to the stage of the carnival Las Palmas on February 24, but after showing erratic behavior that the audience linked with that he was drunk, the councilor Inma Medina interrupted the presentation and ordered that it be canceled. Hours after the incident and before the wave of indignation that caused, the carnival organizers of Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz canceled the merengue presentations.
Since then Manny Manuel in the Canary Islands, while in Puerto Rico and the archipelago that belongs to Spain there has been a wave of speculation about his health and his return to the country.
Yesterday, Cruz Manuel Hernández, real name of the singer, reappeared in a video on his social networks to reiterate that he is standing, under control without taking medication and repented of several events in his life for which he has lost forgiveness in silence. The artist said that his health is good and that he is not interned or confined in any hospital in the Canary Islands.
“I am not perfect, I have erred and there have been regrettable events of which I have repented and I have embarrassed myself in a way, but in my silence. I do not have to be ashamed in front of people, nor do I have to ask for forgiveness, but to know that I erred like a human being. That I’m standing and I’ve learned. Everything will change for the better. Today I am not the Cruz Manuel (first name) of yesterday. Manny Manuel is the artist on a stage. Today, Cruz Manuel says good morning and I am extremely grateful, “said the artist, who during the broadcast stressed that he thanks all the people who have sent him encouraging messages.
