Condolences to Francis M’s Family

Filed under: Main — melfabro @ 1:14 am

Got the news late, since I’m currently working out of the country.  I just received the mail from an officemate regarding this.

I’m not particularly a fan of rap music but I do enjoy listening to his music.

Francis Magalona, diagnosed with leukemia last year, died Friday at 12:20 pm at the Medical City hospital in Pasig City. He was 44.

Magalona was the son of 1950’s legendary actors and celebrity couple Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran.

Launched as a teen star in the 1980s, Magalona’s career boomed with his hit rap song “Mga Kababayan,” which was included in his album “Yo!” released in 1990.

He was also the voice behind the hits “Ito ang Gusto Ko,” “Meron Akong Ano,” “Mga Praning,” and “Kaleidoscope World.”

Francis M left behind is wife Pia Arroyo and their eight children–Unna, Nicolo, Francis Jr., Isabella, Elmo, Arkin, Clara, and actress Maxene Magalona.

  To his family again, I send my condolence.

  6. I made a some blog posts and a tribute days ago as my last respect to the man who “filipinized” the nation through rap music. He will always be remembered along with his works and advocacies!

    The youth and the nation will continue the legacy you left to all of us. Thanks FrancisM!
