Please see Google article on the Brother Franco who just pleaded to all young ones to stay close to Jehovah and learn from his past mistakes on the December Broadcast to see the REAL REASON he left the music industry.
In 2004, he announced his retirement from the music industry after an incident with the government of Panama because of the cancellation of his diplomatic passport. However, he alleged he would dedicate more time to his career as a producer and entrepreneur...
He is currently dedicated as a Jehovah's Witness, to preach the coming of God's Kingdom. He has a foundation called Niños Pobres Sin Fronteras ("Poor Children Without Borders") in Panama City hosting a program of his own called Sal, Azúcar, Miel y Canela ("Salt, Sugar, Honey and Cinnamon") at Radio Kids.
Cool thing is- I love that song from C & C Music Factory that he features in the opening. haha
Just another little expose of the real situation behind the scenes.
