Last Saturday, March 5, the first semi-finals of the Cansau Festival 2022 was broadcast on RTP1, with the songs in the competition presented. All songs were featured on the program’s social media sites, with excerpts from each song shared.
In the post, where the theme of the FF singer “Como É Bom Esperar Quem” was released, Manuel Luis Gocha could not resist and decided to leave the compliment: “Awesome song and voice”in writing. “Without pathetic ‘folklore’, winning all would, notoriously, represent society with dignity”he added.
However, the comment was not well perceived by some netizens, but also by the group in the contest Fado Bicha, who criticized the TVI presenter and accused him of “internal homophobia”:
“What a disrespect for our work, moreover using the wonderful ff_fernandofernandes as a shield from your hate! We are not pathetic, your frank and gratuitous expression of inner homophobia is what it is.”is reading.
Actor Manuel Moreira also decided to respond and criticize the words of Manuel Luis Josha and singer Favela Lacroix.
“Proud coffee junkie. Gamer. Hardcore introvert. Social media trailblazer.”
