But Sosa could attract public attention not just with his sports achievements. Several years ago, during the Grammy Latino Awards, Sammy became a real star of the ceremony. Actually, he didn’t do it on purpose.

The matter was that Sosa’s skin looked bleached. Fans started to worry about the star’s health and suggested he could suffer from a skin infection.

Other people stated that Sosa was trying to look like the late Pop King, Michael Jackson. Hopefully, both versions were wrong.


Sammy explained that his little ‘fiasco’ was the result of the use of a facial cosmetic cream. He said:

It's a cream that I have, that I use to soften my skin, but has bleached me some. I'm not a racist, I live my life happily.
