The father of Yuawi López, an indigenous Mexican boy who became popular for singing the song “Movimiento Naranja”, taken from a video for an election campaign, is missing. This was reported by the Citizen Movement, a party that has hired the little boy on several occasions.

“Yesterday (August 1), at 3.30 p.m., Mr. José López, father of Yuawi, disappeared in the city of Valparaíso Zacatecas. After this unfortunate event, the Mouvement Citoyen filed the corresponding complaint,” says a statement. It is added that the corresponding protection measures have been requested for the minor and his family.

On Tuesday morning, the Zacatecas Attorney General’s Office released a search file for the man also known as “The Blue Stag”51 years old.

José López is a Wixáritari musician, leader of the musical group “El Venado Azul”. He is the violinist and singer of the group.

The man’s family released a statement asking the public to help trace him, they wrote:

“We have bad news, my brother was kidnapped yesterday at 3 o’clock in the afternoon in Valparaíso, Zacatecas. Please be attentive, to all friends if anyone knows anything, please inform the telephone (+52) 488 14 28 606″.

They would have put him in a truck before he was reported missing.

Yuawi, viral for the interpretation of the song

In 2018, ahead of election campaigns, Yuawi appeared humming a catchy song for a few seconds, which was enough for leftist Movimiento Ciudadano’s ad to become Mexico’s first major viral phenomenon of the year, drawing criticism for the use of a minor in the electoral campaign.

The video went viral on platforms like YouTube where it got millions of views and became popular on other social networks. At the end of this publication, it exceeds 66 million views.

Since then, Yuawi, who hails from the indigenous community of the Wixárikas, known as the Huicholes – a majority ethnic group in Nayarit – has collaborated in the said party’s partisan propaganda.

His most recent collaboration dates back to 2021 when he hummed the song that made him famous in 2018, but now with Nuevo León Governor Samuel García and his wife, influencer Mariana Rodríguez Cantú.
