At the Kids’ Choice Awards Mexico 2019, Daddy Yankee and Yalitza Aparicio were living their dreams.
For the reggaetonero, who won Hit Favorito with his song, “Calma,” the highlight of his night wasn’t winning a prize. Instead, it was being drenched in the green goo that makes the show so distinct. He took to Instagram to explain how much joy this moment brought him. “I have waited for this moment since I was a kid. The verdadero baño e’ moco,” he wrote, adding that his nephews are jealous of him.
Yalitza also took home a prize for inspiring young people and her community. In a cute video shared by DY on Instagram, he congratulated the actor on her success. She responded by explaining that a younger Yali would not believe she got to meet Daddy Yankee, the king of reggaeton.
