Selena thanked La Mafia for its support on national television before her untimely death in 1995. But in accounts since then, there is little or no mention of La Mafia.
“Selena and La Mafia were great, great friends, the best of friends, I am here to set the record straight. We did help Selena get her career started. Her father doesn’t want to accept it or be honest with the fans. … But the people that have seen La Mafia for all these years know that we were the ones that helped Selena get started. There were rough times when she was coming up but we believed in her. We knew she was going to do it. It was just a matter of time.” – Oscar
