Posted 6:00 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,

It has been a sad day for Philippine show biz last week with the announcement of the passing of a very notable singer and artist Francis Magalona. He has finally succumbed to the disease of leukemia but he has given a good fight till the end. A lot of people have and will always look up to this amazing star whose light shall not flicker and die for it is guaranteed that he will always live on in every Pinoy's heart.

Francis Magalona (October 4, 1964 - March 6, 2009), also known as FrancisM, Master Rapper, and The Man From Manila, was a Filipino rapper, songwriter, producer, actor, director, and photographer. Often hailed as the "King of Pinoy Rap", he was considered a legend in the Philippine music community. With the success of his earliest albums, he was the first Filipino rapper in the Philippines to cross over to the mainstream. He is also credited for having pioneered the merging of rap with Pinoy rock, becoming a significant influence to artists in that genre as well. He was also a television host on MTV Asia and on noontime variety television show Eat Bulaga! Magalona died seven months after being diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. The Philippine government has announced that Magalona will be posthumously awarded the National Medal of Merit, for his contributions in promoting patriotism through music.

Here is a video tribute for this amazing person Francis M.
