The young daughter of Cuban dissident rapper Maykel “Osorbo” Castillo, who is currently a political of the communist Castro dictatorship, calls on Summit attendees to help free her father.
On June 7, Jade de la Caridad, the daughter of Cuban rapper Mayel “Osorbo” Castillo, sent a message to the participants of the Summit of the Americas calling for her father’s freedom.
“Ladies and gentlemen of the Summit, although you don’t know me I send you a message from Cuba. My father is imprisoned only for singing a song. Can you help me free him?” the young girl asked in a video message posted on Facebook.
Her father, who is a Cuban dissident musician put on trial in May, is awaiting his sentencing hearing. Prosecutors are asking for a 10-year prison sentence.
Osorbo, who won two Grammy Latino Awards for the song “Patria y Vida,” was arrested on March 18, 2021 and kept incommunicado for two weeks. He is currently being held at the “Kilo 5 y Medio Prison” prison in the province of Pinar del Rio.
