Ka Freddie Aguilar is best known for his rendition of “Bayan Ko”, which became the anthem for the opposition to the Marcos regime during the 1986 People Power Revolution. His song “Anak” remains the best-selling Philippine music record of all time with as many as a hundred versions in 23 languages recorded throughout the world. Like many in Mayor Duterte’s inner circle who are veterans of the fight against the Marcos dictatorship, Ka Freddie understands that in this current battle for the hearts and minds of Filipinos, it is Rodrigo Duterte who is the true patriot.
As the Duterte campaign heads to Tacloban City later today, we are reminded of the disaster that was Yolanda and the desperate need for real change in our country. Ka Freddie’s words couldn’t have been more appropriate:
“Ikaw at ako
Tayong lahat kay Rodrigo
Duterte para sa
Tunay na pagbabago”
Salamat Ka Freddie. Salamant Sahad and Edoy as well as the rest of the CinEmotion team. Salamat David Delos Santos.
