Francis M’s journey ends

“I look forward to the pain as I know my journey is on full speed ahead. I will not be bold to say that without asking a favor from you all. PLEASE PRAY for me as I undergo treatment. Your prayers, as always, have sustained me. And am sure the Lord will listen to all our prayers. To His will I submit myself.”

—Francis Magalona This was taken from Magalona’s last blog entry dated January 14, 2009 found on his multiply page “a Free Mind” (francismagalona.multiply.com). He succumbed to leukemia on March 6, 2009 at age 44. —– Master Rapper Francis Magalona was born Francis Michael Durango Magalona on October 4, 1964. Fondly called “Kiko” by his family and friends and “FrancisM,” “Master Rapper” or “The Man from Manila” by fans, Magalona is the son of late Philippine movie icons Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran. He has nine brothers and sisters. Magalona is married to Pia Arroyo and they have eight children, namely Unna, Nicolo, Francis Jr., Elmo, Arkin, Clara, and actresses Maxene and Saab. He started out as a break dancer in the early 1980s, before launching his vast showbiz career as an actor, host, rapper, veejay, producer, photographer and director. He is best known for his smash hit song “Mga Kababayan” from the album Yo! (1990),said to be the first commercially-released Philippine rap album in the Philippines. According to Magalona’s Wikipedia page, Magalona is regarded as the first Filipino rapper to successfully crossover to the mainstream market. Because of this, he is known as the “King of Pinoy Rap.” Magalona released many albums including Rap Is FrancisM (1992), Meron akong ano! (I have something!)(1993), and FreeMan (1995) spanning more hits like “Ito ang Gusto Ko,” “Girl Be Mine” and “Kaleidoscope World.” His greatest hits album, The Best of FrancisM,was released in 2002. He also dabbled into hosting television shows and events. His hosting credits include being a VJ for MTV Asia, a judge in ABC-5’s “Philippine Idol” and host of noontime show “Eat Bulaga!” Magalona even directed music videos for bands and artists under his production company Filipino Pictures Inc. He also had his own record company called Red Egg Records, and a clothing line named FMCC (FrancisM Clothing Co.) which carries the “3 Stars & a Sun” line of stores. In addition, he got into painting and photography and was even a member of the Camera Club of the Philippines. He also started a foundation with Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia (now with the band Pupil) called Heartist Foundation, which aims to help Filipino artists with health and commercial concerns. Recently, he was involved in the making of “The Sickos Project,” a collaboration album with Buendia and other artists. Magalona’s contribution to Philippine rap music was cited in the international publication All Music Guide to Hip-Hop: The Definitive Guide to Rap and Hip-Hop (2003). He was also given the Pioneer Hall of Fame Award at the 1st Annual Philippine Hip-Hop Music Awards in 2005.

Francis Magalona passed away a while ago,the Master of rapper here in the Phillipines.

Isa ako sa umiidolo sa taong to kilalang si KIKO Magallona o Francis M., magaling na rapper at iniidolo ng mga kabataang rapper ngayon unang nakilala sa kantang MGA KABABAYAN KO.

Madami na syang naibahagi sa industriya natin mapa singer o ma pa atista malaki ang naibahagi nya satin mga pinoy at ito’y nakakatatak na rin satin sino ba ang hindi nakakakilala kay Francis M. as known as KIKO kilala mabuting tao,mabuting ama, mabuting kaibigan,mabuting kasamang katrabaho,lahat na rin ng katangian makikita mo sknya.

Isang taong marunong bumalik sa pinanggalingan, isang taong matatag na lumalaban sa sa sakit na “leukemia” na alam naman nating lahat na iilan lang ang pwedeng maka survive sa sakit na to, bilib ako dahil hindi nya pinakita satin na nahihirapan sya positive thinker pa rin sya na tatagal pa sya at makakasama ng mga nagmamahal sknya, pinanghawakan nya ang diyos natin para ipagpatuloy ang buhay.

Pero sad to say kinuha na sya, kinuha na ni LORD kung ano ang pinahiram nya satin.Madami syang naiwanan na kung tutuusin  bata pa sya at maraming pang magagawa at gagawin pa lang.

Siguro kinuha sya para wag ng mahirapan, dahil alam natin na mabigat ang dinadala nya,mabigat man sknya na iwanan ang lahat ng meron sya ngayon pero kinailangan nyang iwan na ito.:(

Bilib ako sknya dahil sa pamamagitan din nya eh naipagmalaki nya ang PILIPINAS at ang pagiging PINOY natin.

ikaw pa rin ang PINOY RAPPER na kikilalanin ko IDOL FRANICS MAGALONA.

may you rest in peace..KIKO alam ng lahat na masaya ka na kasama sya..

kahit dito man lang sa blog ko nasabi ko na IDOL kita dahil isa ka sa naging inspirasyon ng lahat…salamat..

    anyway, i’m not fan of francis but i like his songs especially kaleidoscope world. yong pinagkaiba niya sa ibang rapper eh, may sense yung mga lyrics niya at madaling sabayan kahit hindi ka pa mabilis magsalita.

    my impression about him for the longest time before siya ma-diagnose ay siya lang ata ang aristang hindi tumatanda ang itsura. condolence sa pamilya at mga kaibigan niya.

    wagnut:” napansin mo rin pala yun ang gwapo pa rin nya no sa edad na 44 actually kras ko na sya noon pa hehe..kahit hanggang nayon na kasama nya si GOD at tama ka lahat ng kinanta nya may sense at sumikat pa..sayang lang talaga..
