El Chapo image projected on stage by Peso Pluma during ‘Ochito Fest’ in Culiacan

The image of Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán appeared at the “Ochito Fest” concert during Culiacán’s 491st-anniversary celebration.

According to local media, a singer of trap corridos known as Peso Pluma paid tribute to the Mexican drug lord by playing a narcocorrido.

The celebration began on Friday, September 23, and ended on October 1 in Culiacán, Sinaloa.

It was through TikTok that videos of the moment began to be shared.

“In a Urus, I go for a ride, ten pickup trucks look behind me, I take care of Mr. Guzmán’s plaza, and I bring Piyi as a security ring,” is heard in one part of the song.

The musical piece contains the acronym JGL referring to Joaquín Guzmán Loera, known as El Chapo.

Due to the above, the Colectivo de Mujeres Activas Sinaloenses, A.C. expressed its opposition through its Twitter account.

There they pointed out that such acts were an apology for crime since the image of El Chapo was projected on stage during the show.

The head of Culture in Culiacán, Alonso Ramírez, said that the event was attended by thousands of people and had a “golden brooch” closing.

The organizer made the decision to include the presentation of ‘Peso Pluma’ in the event at the last minute due to the cancellation of another artist who was previously scheduled,” said a statement from the Culiacán City Hall.
