Daddy Yankee Embraces Christianity In Retirement

December 7, 2023 | By Kali Girl

As Daddy Yankee bids farewell to the music scene, he’s shifting his focus to his Christian faith, reports USA TODAY. The reggaeton icon made the revelation during his farewell concert at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico.

During a concert clip shared on Instagram, Yankee declared, “My people, this day for me is the most important day of my life. And I want to share it with you because living a life of success is not the same as living a life with purpose.”

Despite the material wealth he accumulated with his success, the Puerto Rican rapper said his faith in Christ helped fill the “emptiness that I felt for a long time.”

“What good will it be for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?” Yankee said, citing a Bible verse. “That is why tonight, I recognize, and I am not ashamed to tell the whole world that Jesus lives in me and that I will live for him.”

Yankee, aka Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez, vows to use his celebrity status, social media, and music popularity to promote Christianity, encouraging fans to follow his spiritual path.

“To all the people who followed me, follow Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth and the life,” Yankee said. “Just like Jesus, with his mercy, allowed me to travel the world, in your mercy, Father, I hope you allow me to evangelize the world from Puerto Rico.”
