Today we remember one of the music legends in the Philippines, Mr. Francis Magalona.
It's been 5 years since our Master Rapper passed away and we cannot miss this day to pay tribute to his contributions in our entertainment industry. Francis M. takes on several titles for this artist is not only a musician but is also well-known for his acting career. He appeared in a number of films, amounting to 23 in total!
He is also a father to 8 kids. Just last year, his son Elmo Magalona bagged an award in the MYX Music Awards 2013, bringing home the Favorite Guest Appearance in a Music Video. And in an interview with him, he shares some of his thoughts on his late father saying, "Tingin ko 'yung pinaka-naaalala ko sa kanya nung 80s ay yung pag-star niya 'ata sa mga movie-films... tulad ng "Bagets", "Ninja Kids". 'Yun, lagi niyang binabanggit kasi... classic na siya."
And since it's Thursday. We're giving you a little throwback! Here's a round-up of his greatest works in the film industry!
