Vicente Fernandez is far from being forgotten by the Mexican public and although that may not happen due to his legacy in regional Mexican cinema and music, the various productions about his life do seem to keep him in trend and the most talked about topics among Mexicans, because with the announcement of a series that is authorized and one that is not, opinion has already divided sides and seems to be the beginning of a great scandal.

John Osorio who is in charge of producing The Last King: The Son of the People for Televisa Univisionwas honest about what he thinks of the recent controversy that his new project is going through, which without having already been released on Mexican television, has generated a feeling of rejection among fans of The Charro of Huentitan, who have accused the company of betraying the trust that the singer gave him in life.

“I hope that (Vicente’s) family realizes that We also have great respect and affection, but there are things that cannot be hidden, because the situations that the family has experienced are also in the public domain.”, expressed the producer of melodramas in an interview for the newspaper The universal.

It all started because the producer was based on the controversial book written by the Argentine journalist Olga Wornat, The last kingwhere he gives an account of the love affairs that the singer had in his rise to fame, his stardom and his last years, as well as controversial topics such as the alleged link of Gerardo Fernandezeldest son of the deceased charro, with organized crime, issues that have caused annoyance among the members of the Jalisco dynasty.

For the soap opera producer like My husband has more family, A lucky family or Together the heart is never wrong made it clear that it does not matter that there is more than one series of The king since at the end of the day what is important is that the Mexican and Latin American public knows the story and that they themselves are the ones who qualify the production, the way of telling and interpreting as well as the veracity of everything, so despite saying “I’m up to my neck in water” -because of the controversy- he is happy with the project.
