Colombian hip hop fusion trio ChocQuibTown were rejected from the set of Caracol TV after only two of its three band members turned up for the interview, rumors suggest.
Gossip site Sweet reports that two band members of the Latin Grammy winning band, Goyo and Tostao, showed up to the interview but the band’s third member Slow couldn’t make it due to illness. When producers eventually realized that only two band members had showed up they sent them home, saying thank you very much, but we’re not interested in just two out of three.
The irony is that ChocQuibTown will be part of a new social program run by Caracol TV and will surely be asked to return for another interview in the future.
The band recently spoke out about the rights of Afro-Colombians, saying, “We are narrating a Colombia that does not appear in the mass media.” They performed their hit single “De donde vengo yo” (Where I come from) to an international audience at the Latin Grammy Awards in February 2011.
