Francis Durango Magalona

Francis Magalona’s death is a great and absolute national loss for the Filipino nation.

A great artist, very much loved by all his friends and to numerous other artist, he had a huge number of  supporters from all walks of life.

Grandson of revered nationalist Senator, Enrique Magalona [author of RA No 709, “Instruction of Spanish in colleges and universities”], and son of famous parents, Pancho and Tita, a matinee tandem in the mid 1900’s. The Magalona’s were proud Ilonngos.

As a young man, he became an actor, following on the footsteps his parents, he’s remembered by his days in the “bagets”, he then ventured into rap music, were his career even more blossomed. He consistently advocated nationalism and unity in his songs.

The “Man from Manila” should be awarded a National Artist recognition for his inspiring music and his patriotic efforts. We owe this man a great deal.

He will be greatly missed.
