Over the weekend, Coti Sorokin took to Twitter to make something very clear: the song “Color Esperanza” was not written for political campaigns.
Sorokin, who wrote the song performed by Diego Torres, made his remarks after the Argentine singer included the song in the repertoire during his performance at the Venezuela Aid Live concert that took place on Friday (Feb. 22) in Cucuta, Colombia.
“The situation in Venezuela is very delicate. I do not feel legitimate any side,” Sorokin wrote, using text graphics. “Hopefully there will be elections soon so that people can vote freely and be able to choose. Leave Maduro but don’t allow Trump with his friends. That’s why I do not agree that they used my song.”
Torres has not issued a statement, but shared a video of attendees chanting along to the song.
