Kiko Rivera is the rather useless lump of a son of Isabel Pantoja, the famous singer who together with her lover Julian Muñoz stole millions from Marbella townhall. (And basically got away with it, since she’s famous).
Anyway, since he has about as much musical talent as I do, he’s been trying to make a name for himself as a DJ. After about a decade without success, you’d have thought he’d have given up, but no.
Anyway, he was supposed to be headlining the fiesta in Medina del Campo.
But indignant citizens got up a petition, which some 7,500 good citizens signed, and the Mayor sacked him. Which is why Medina del Campo has better infrastructure than Turre, the citizens aren’t afraid to sign a petition.
The petition ran “we ask the townhall not to contract Kiko Rivera to play at this years festival”.
Kiko appears to be suffering from his mum’s nefarious activities – she’s going from strength to strength as a tonadillera and seems to be considered to be a national institution, despite being convicted in the courts for conspiring to steal millions of tax payers money from Marbella, and he’s paying for it.
Kiko had been offered a contract to be paid €11,000 for a nights work, and once he got wind of the petition, offered to drop it to €5,500. No go.
The Mayor says that since the contract wasn’t actually signed, no public money has been paid to Paquirrin, as he desperately calls himself to try to gain public sympathy by alluding to his dead bullfighting father Paquirri and no breach of contract has occurred.
Kiko has refused to comment, but isn’t adverse to appearing on TV chat shows to moan about how unfair life is.
