“I’m a big dreamer. I remember when I was in high school saying that I wanted to be here at the museum and everything is happening; nothing is too big to make it happen,” Maluma said.

Officials with the famous museum said Maluma’s figure will be wearing an authentic white Versace double-breasted jacket and black Bottega Veneta shoes, one of his favorite outfits.
