Cuban reggaeton singer Osmani García, well known for his famous song "El Taxi," has announced through a video that he will go into a "rehabilitation program."

García, who just recently signed a contract with RockMoon Company, expressed in his own words, how important this step is in his musical career.

According to a statement from his representatives, the singer suffers from "physical and emotional exhaustion" because "he has been on a ceaseless tour of promotion and an endless number of presentations worldwide."

García, known as "La voz," posted the video on Facebook explaining his decision to seek help to all his fans.

"I want to share with my audience that I have not felt good for a long time and I have looked for relief in inappropriate things. I have decided to go to rehab with the support of my family and my fans to win this battle. Send me a lot of light," he said.

The singer remains "positive about his decision and willing to rejoin his work and share with his fans soon," said his representatives.

García has been involved in many controversies. One of them is the ban of the song "Chupi Chupi," an ode to oral sex that was denounced as "degenerate" in November 2011 by the Cuban Culture Minister.

The singer also lent his voice to the character of Robbie Rotten, in the famous animated series Lazy Town. But then his work only lasted a season, due to inconveniences with the production.
