We wish to congratulate Måneskin once again by wishing them great success. There was no drug use and we consider the matter closed“.
And it is that Måneskin had taken the headlines in much of the world and the photograph of the singer bent over the table appeared in hundreds of media. Therefore, in the press conference after the contest, Damiano David confessed his willingness to submit to a drug test voluntarily and thus reject any type of speculation. “I will take the test and there will be a paper that will say who is right and who is not,” he said.
