Vina del Mar (Chile), Ma Mar 1: The Puerto Rican reggaeton duo of Wisin & Yandel denied here that their lyrics are offensive to women, an assessment made by the Cuban government in barring the group's songs from being played on radio and television.
"I believe we're not offending women," Juan Luis Morera Luna, a.k.a. Wisin, said Thursday.
The Cuban government's assessment of the group's lyrics as obscene was "unfounded", he said.
Wisin added that the duo's only intention is to "bring joy and have a good time".
The artist also said the group has "millions" of Cuban fans, not only among the Cuban-exile community in the US but also among the island's residents, and that most of their hard-core fans are women.
The duo will be performing for the second time at the Vina del Mar Festival, which has included reggaeton as one of its staple genres.
