Gloc-9 Speaks Up About Performing in Binay Political Rally

OPM icon and ace-rapper Gloc-9 took to his Facebook to speak up about his controversial performance at the political rally of Makati Mayoral candidate Abby Binay.

On his Facebook post Wednesday March 30, Gloc-9 said it’s all about work and that it’s the only work he knew.

“Trabaho lang po ito dahil ito lamang naman po ang trabaho ko.”

His post immediately created buzz and was shared more than eight thousand times with more than five thousand comments as of writing.

 

Gloc-9 has been in hot water after netizens called him out for his “unprincipled” appearance at the political rally of Makati Mayoralty candidate Abby Binay on Monday March 28th.

Gloc-9 who’s known for his thought provoking songs about the realities in our society was heavily criticized on social media for sharing the stage with the Binays who’s been linked to several corruption cases.

He shared his management advised him not to speak about the controversy but he cannot take it sitting down. Gloc-9 continued by saying he respects all the sentiments, rants and opinions he read on social media but reiterated it’s just a job. He further explained that he also performed for other candidates to prove the recent one is not un-usual.

“Ako ay kumakanta sa entablado ng ibat ibang kandidato marahil ay hindi nyo lang gusto ang isang entabladong sinampahan ko.”

In the end he said whatever happens and whatever is the outcome of this election, it is only to his kids that he will apologize because they are the only one whom is accountable for.

“At sa may mga sama ng loob kung sakaling ang lahat po ng bintang duro at akusasyon ninyo sa huli ay mapapatunayang tama at tunay hihingi po ako ng tawad ngunit hindi sa kahit na sino man dahil higit sa aking pagiging manunulat ng awitin, higit sa aking pagiging ehemplo at higit sa aking pagiging mamamayan ako po ay isang Ama. Hihingi ako ng tawad sa aking mga anak dahil naniniwala ako na sa kanila lamang ako may pananagutan.”

Here’s the complete post of Gloc-9 about his controversial performance at the political rally of the Binays.

Pinag sabihan po ako ng aking managment na huwag nang mag salita tungkol dito pero di ko po kaya.

Nais ko pong malaman ng lahat na nababasa ko ang mga saloobin ninyo at nirerespeto ko ito kahit na minsan masasakit na ang mga salitang kasama nito. Paumanhin po kung hindi nasunod ang gusto ninyo at mawalang galang na din po sa mga nag sasabing hindi pwedeng TRABAHO LANG ITO dahil ITO LAMANG NAMAN PO ANG TRABAHO KO. Hindi po ito hobby na naging trabaho ito po ay isang pangarap na ipinaglaban ko ng halos dalawang dekada sa kahit na saan ano at kanino at maitutuloy ko lamang ito kung ito ang magiging hanap buhay ko. Ako ay kumakanta sa entablado ng ibat ibang kandidato marahil ay hindi nyo lang gusto ang isang entabladong sinampahan ko. Katulad ng lahat may kanya kanyang dungis na ibinabato sa bawat isa sa kanila gayon paman i wish all the candidates good luck sa darating na elections at naway ang mapipili ay tunay na mag sisilbi at tamang mamumuno sa bayan natin. At sa may mga sama ng loob kung sakaling ang lahat po ng bintang duro at akusasyon ninyo sa huli ay mapapatunayang tama at tunay hihingi po ako ng tawad ngunit hindi sa kahit na sino man dahil higit sa aking pagiging manunulat ng awitin, higit sa aking pagiging ehemplo at higit sa aking pagiging mamamayan ako po ay isang Ama. Hihingi ako ng tawad sa aking mga anak dahil naniniwala ako na sa kanila lamang ako may pananagutan.

Salamat po. Gloc-9
