Most Filipinos know Papa, FrancisM, as the Master Rapper, the Man from Manila, the artist who inspired Filipinos with national pride through songs like Mga Kababayan, Kaleidoscope World and 3 Stars and A Sun. Indeed, Papa was the #1 Fan of Filipinos, he believed that we could make an impact in both the Philippines and the world if only we would believe in ourselves. When he wrote songs, he wasn’t aiming for hits. He wanted to use his music to change how we, Filipinos saw ourselves.

Papa made sure to share this with us his family and with his many friends. He taught my brothers and sisters and I to be proud of who we are, to believe in ourselves, to follow our dreams responsibly, to speak up on issues worth talking about, to help in whatever way we can, to be a leader and make a difference and to love the Philippines.

Papa wasn’t perfect, it was both through his personal failures and successes-the long process of self-transformation and commitment to personal development that he found meaning in himself: as a proud Filipino, a person of integrity and an agent of change. This is the message he shared with everyone through his music. Now through the Francis Magalona Foundation, we want to give the Filipino people the opportunity to Find Meaning in themselves – A Filipino people with a true sense of Filipino pride, personal integrity and a commitment to positive change.

Rest assured na ang ipinaglalaban ni Master Kiko ay patuloy na magiging buhay sa puso ng bawat indibidwal na kanyang nabago sa pamamagitan ng kanyang adbokasya’t mga awitin.

Mabuhay, Pilipinas!

isang tunay na alamat si Francis Magalona. Dahil sa kanyang mga sinulat na kanta, nagningning muli ang tunay na kahulugan at kasaysayan ng ating bandila. Ngayon ay ating isapuso ang mga liriko nito upang mapanatili ang iisang dugo na nananalaytay sa atin at mamulat tayo sa ating pinagmulan.
