“When I met Yrma Lydya it was through a proposal from the label and yes there was an amount that his office, in this case Jesús, who handled that, offered us. At the time that I know her, that I hear her sing and that we see the way to create synergy, I tell her, ‘you know what,’ we are going to do more than a payment theme, that really absorbs your expensesbecause The tour of GranDiosas is already closed with the cast”, expressed Mejuto in the program First hand.
The amount that the court processed today disbursed was for operating expenses related to the preparation of Yrma’s performance specifically, not a payment to the producer “for letting her act”, as has been handled.

“(I told him) You are going to be in the middle, only piano and voice, because so the public will know your voice potential, your talent and it is how the arrangement was made, which is part of the payment she made, to the scores, to the payment of fees to the pianist, my music director, lighting director and others, and it always went very well for her, really”, expressed Mejuto .
The producer pointed out that Yrma Lydya’s femicide wanted her partner to stand out at the concerts, and his intention was for the young woman to appear alongside the other singers with an extensive career:
