In addition, if until Friday some people have not been able to appreciate it, it will also be exhibited in the Atanasio Girardot State, where Maluma is preparing a concert to accompany the show of medal on the map.

The news was shared by the singer on his social networks, in which he celebrated the fact that this sculpture came to contribute to Colombian culture. “Baby today we are 2 x 1 😂 — First time in the history of the @madametussaudsusa museum that they bring a figure to South America specifically to COLOMBI A. For the culture Parcerosssss!!”, were the words of Maluma, while showing the work of art and then, himself next to it almost immovable, in that image it would be almost impossible to determine which is the statue and which is the true artist.

Maluma’s personal stylist would have been the one who worked with the sculptors in making the costumes that use the artist’s wax figure, So then, a jacket designed by Versace was chosen, the same one that has been sponsoring the singer for some years. Meanwhile, the shoes would be a design by the Italian fashion house, Bottega Veneta.

“The work that the entire Madame Tussauds team has created is unreal. The figure is a true replica of me and I feel honored that they bring a piece of me to my fans before my concert”, were the words of the paisa artist about the exhibition, stating that he was happy with the results of his wax sculpture .

Throughout my career, I have worked hard to share with the world that Medellin, Colombia, is art, culture, music and much more; and I am happy to continue representing my roots globally.” assured the singer, referring to one of his goals through his musical career. It should be noted that, at times, the capital of Antioquia, as well as other regions of the country, have been tainted by acts of vandalism and drug trafficking on an international level.

And finished, “I thank both museums for collaborating and making this a historic moment in which a wax figure is presented in Colombia and South America for the first time”, insisting on the great event, since for many Colombians the possibility of visiting the famous museum and recognizing first-hand the work of these sculptors would be very distant, but the collaboration of these two cultural centers made it a reality.
