In September 2022 Frías suffered a episode of censorship at the Casa de la Música de Galianowhen he tried to release his song Change which deals with the Cuban migration crisis and the need for political change in the country.

This generated a great controversy on social media. The Ministry of Culture accused Frías of promoting the situation and began to cancel all his concerts in the country.

The musician traveled to Mexico and many people thought that he would leave Cuba, but he assured that he would not. He returned to Havana, despite the fact that the cultural institutions had closed several projects that he had at the end of 2022.

He denounced this situation with strong words. “Yes I am living censorship, because this has no other name than ‘CENSORSHIP’ and I will not beg for something that belongs to me in my own right. Playing in Cuba is a right that I earned and the people gave it to me,” he said in October.

Frías used a tenth to answer the reasons why he returned to Cuba despite the censorship of the State and stressed that if he was on the island it was for his daughter.

“Why I turned around they ask me / Some stunned / Seeing my calm laugh / At the rifles that are pointed at me / Only fears emerge / When the free soul lives / There is no pain to mitigate it / And to be honest / I turned for what I love most / Does it answer your question?” Said the artist.

In December Frías lived an emotional moment when he was invited by the musician Alexander Abreu and his band Havana D’Primera to sing in the Cuban capital.

“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to sing again to my people from all over Havana and thanks to all the Cubans who were there for the welcome and love they gave me,” said Frías.
