- The Government of the Republic of the Philippines
Francis Magalona, also known as the Master Rapper, FrancisM, Kiko, The Mouth, and the Man from Manila, is a Filipino rapper, songwriter, actor, photographer, and film director who was born on October 4, 1964 and passed away on March 6, 2009.
He is the son of Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran, who were popular film stars of the postwar period. He has appeared in numerous films and television shows like Bagets 2, Eat Bulaga, Philippine Idol (as one of the judges), Student Canteen, and That's Entertainment, and produced 15 music albums.
We would call on the government of the Republic of the Philippines to commend Mr. Francis Magalona as a National Artist for Music. Most of his songs attribute to Filipino nationalism.
The Commend Francis Magalona as a National Artist for Music petition to The Government of the Republic of the Philippines was written by Kevin Limkinglam and is in the category Music at GoPetition.
