The Mexican singer Peso Pluma announced this Wednesday the cancellation of a concert he had scheduled in October in Tijuana, after an alleged drug cartel threatened to kill him if he performed in that border city with the United States.

«Our goal is to protect the fans and the team. For the safety of everyone involved, we will cancel our show in Tijuana," says a message signed by "La Doble P," as the artist refers to himself, published on the Instagram account of his production company, Prajin Music Group.

«Thank you very much to all our fans for understanding. “We love them,” added the 24-year-old artist, who admits to having written songs “on behalf of” drug traffickers.

Tijuana authorities reported last week the discovery of four signs placed in different parts of the city, threatening to kill the singer of the genre known as corrido tumbado if he appeared on October 14.

Local media broadcast the image of at least one of the ads signed with the acronym "CJNG", corresponding to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, one of the most powerful drug mafias in Mexico with a presence in several countries.

The mayor of Tijuana, Monserrat Caballero, told local media on Tuesday that the only person who had been detained for the threats was released as his relationship with the incident was not proven and pointed out that there is no evidence to support that it was the work of organized crime. .

Peso Pluma, stage name of the singer Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija, stands out for being the first Mexican to have placed almost a dozen songs among the 100 most popular in the United States, according to Billboard magazine, and in the global Top 50 of Spotify, references of the music industry.

The artist, who last June recorded a collaboration with the Argentine Bizarrap, appears in several videos wearing expensive designer clothing and displaying long weapons. In at least one of them he directly celebrates the Sinaloa Cartel, a criminal organization founded by the now imprisoned capo Joaquín "el Chapo" Guzmán.

He is currently on a concert tour through cities in the United States, Mexico and Spain, which will last until the end of November, to promote his most recent album "Génesis."
