Goodbye Mr. Francis M.

The news about Kiko's death came to me yesterday when my officemate popped up me and informed me about this tragic event. Yeah I know, I don't know him personally and he wasn't even my idol. But truly, his music is really good and he opened our eyes to the importance of nationalism. I could say that he was a part of our lives. My oldest sister used to listen to his songs when I was a kid. I think she had this casette tape of his album "Yo!" way back in 1991. And yes, his songs are meaningful unlike to other rap songs that doesn't have any sense at all. One of his songs, I think, is very popular to my other sister, Cheche. She is "pango" and Francis M has a song with lines "Tayo'y mga Pinoy, tayo'y hindi Kano. Wag kang mahihiya, kung ang ilong mo ay Pango!" I always sing that song to her para inisin or asarin yung sister ko. Even my parents were singing that song just to make fun of her. Well, Francis M will always live through to his music and he lived his life worthy even in just a short span of time.
