The Madrilenian, who achieved a double platinum record with his hit "Mala Mujer" (2017), was hired for a maximum amount of 88,300 euros -6% of them corresponding to taxes-. The agreement includes both the artist's cache and the assembly of the show, the sound and light equipment, the suspension insurance for adverse weather conditions, tickets, hotel and catering, among other concepts.

The Government of Ceuta has made clear that it is going to review the contract file before making the payment of the activity to analyze that the successful bidder has complied with all the contractual obligations of the file.
The matches Caballas and MDyC, mainly, criticized in their social networks the amount that had to be paid to the artist and the time that the concert had lasted, of "scarcely 50 minutes".
In addition, they also criticized that he had not wanted to attend to the media upon his arrival in Ceuta, where he did not make any kind of statements.
