The Masked Singer Wiki

Apache (play on words between the Apache Native Americans tribe and Mapache, meaning Raccoon) is a masked celebrity on the third season of ¿Quién es la máscara?.

It was later revealed that the celebrity underneath the mask was Kalimba.


Apache's appearance is that of a raccoon wearing clothing of the tribe that bears his name, which consists of baggy cotton pants, a leather belt from which several details such as feathers and laces are detached, a talisman on his neck, bracelets on his arms, and a huge war bonnet on his head that reaches down to his feet.

"Oh not just dance, me like heights, and once when I was little to try to fly as a superhero."

"And you are right, because me to fall like a little chicken, and give a lot of laughs, hahaha!"

(Alan Estrada): "From what you mention, which by the way, what beautiful words, it seems that the Apache has learned a lot, on this night of goodbyes, of triumph, because everyone is already a winner, is there something that the Apache would like to say to that soul that lives inside him?"
"To want to say thank you, the Apache not being sure which way to go in this new adventure, and when the Apache touches this place, the Apache recognizing himself through recognizing others, through hearing words, the Apache say to the Apache thank you for opening your heart to allow you to experience this."
(Alan Estrada): "Apache you have stolen everyone's heart and we wish you wholeheartedly the greatest success in this grand finale."
