Accompanied onstage by Yandel, Omar delivered the news at a concert in the U.S. territory late Friday as he praised Yandel's future as a soloist.

Yandel's real name is Llandel Veguilla Malave, and his singing partner is Juan Luis Morera Luna.

The two rappers began their career in 1998 and have produced 10 albums. The crossover stars also have collaborated with singers Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez and Lenny Kravitz.
