Francis M. is DEAD


"On March 6, 2009, it was reported that Francis Magalona succumbed to acute myelogenous leukemia at 12:00 noon that day, a few days after his fourth chemotherapy session and a few days before his supposed stem cell transplant. The announcement was first made on the variety show Eat Bulaga! where he served as a host prior to his health problems. A short tribute to the artist was aired after the announcement. A minute of prayer was also observed in remembrance of Mr. Magalona in the noontime TV show Wowowee."

At first I really didn't believe the news from my classmates because I knew that Francis M. was having his chemo and I thought that he's on his way regaining his health but the news is absolutely true. I'm not a fan of Francis M. but every Filipino knows him, I think even foreigners know him. Francis Magalona is like a pillar of OPM and Filipino Rap industry and that's why every Filipino knows him. It's sad because his one of the best Filipino performers and at his young age, he already died. I'm sure all the Filipinos around the world are sad right now because of what happened and I'm one of them. May you rest in peace Francis Magalona.
