It was when he was on his “There’s A Wismichu in Me” tour. However, his audience and a video of his own proved this wrong. The fact that Wismichu gave almost 200 shows and no such complaint surfaced during any of those helped prove his innocence in this matter.

Ojeda claimed that this made him fear for his life and physical safety. However, the police dropped the report because they didn’t think it was classified as a threat.
