What did not go down well among social media users is that the singers are performing a controversial song by Armando Zabaleta, in which the composer expresses several criticisms of the Nobel Prize winner in Literature and very loved by Colombians, Gabriel García Márquez.

The reactions are a bit mixed, because while some flattered to the artists and agree with what the song says, others rejected the verses and attacked themminimizing their career in comparison to what Márquez achieved.
