Maluma Abruptly Leaves Interview Over Question About Qatar World Cup

Colombian singer Maluma, one of the artists featured on a 2022 FIFA World Cup anthem, left an interview on Friday after a reporter asked him about human rights abuses in Qatar.

Maluma, who is featured on “Tukoh Taka” with Nicki Minaj and Myriam Fares, left the interview with Israel’s Kan 11 public network reporter Moav Vardi following a question about performers refusing to play at the World Cup.

Maluma, who has recorded songs for the World Cup in recent years, told Vardi he had a problem with human rights abuses in Qatar but said he could not solve them and came to the event to “enjoy” life with football.

Vardi continued to press Maluma about his association with the World Cup, but Maluma didn’t have it.

“You don’t do that. You are rude,” Maluma told Vardi.
