They cancel shows of Don Omar in Bolivia and arrest his brother

The Bolivian Police proceeded with the arrest of the singer’s brother and the organizers of the event who must declare for a failed show.

Rojas indicated that “many people got their tickets” even came from within the country and waited for the event to take place outside the main La Paz stadium.


The arrest of the organizers took place after the press conference offered by the organizers of the event to explain the reasons why the singer could not arrive in Bolivia to meet the events in La Paz and Santa Cruz.
