Allan Pineda (aka Apl.D.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas) arrives in Manila to receive a special citation from the 2008 Myx Music Awards for his outstanding achievements as a Filipino artist and for promoting Filipino culture through his songs. The awarding will take place on March 26 at the Meralco Theater.

On Wednesday, March 26, the whole country will find out whom among the local artists and performers have won the hearts and votes of the Filipino audience in this year's MYX Music Awards.

Get ready for this major music event as some of the most respected bands and solo artists perform their hits live at the Meralco Theater. Some of the performers include rock band Sandwich, sexy girl group Kitty Girls, Pinoy Dream Academy's Grand Star Dreamer Yeng Constantino and many more!

Some of the presenters for the evening include Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid, singers Jay Contreras of Kamikazee and Chito Miranda of Parokya Ni Edgar, former Pinoy Big Brother housemates Ruben Gonzaga and Gaby dela Merced, and TV host Edu Manzano. MYX North America VJs Chris Cayzer and Amber Davis will also grace the third edition of this annual music awards.

What's more, one of the most admired Fil-American artists comes back to his roots to take part in the celebration. International artist Allan Pineda, more popularly known as Apl.D.Ap of the hip hop group Black Eyed Peas, once again visits the country for this very special occasion. The native of Angeles, Pampanga flew into the country earlier today to be part of the 2008 MYX Music Awards.

Not only will he present the Favorite Music Video of the year, he will also be given a special citation for his valuable contribution to the music industry, not only in the Philippines but even as a global music icon. Writing songs pertaining to his nationality and making music as a tribute to his motherland, Apl.D.Ap truly deserves this honor.


"The Apl Song" found in the Black Eyed Peas' 2003 album Elephunk has a chorus sung in Tagalog and speaks of his experience as a Filipino-American. In addition, the title of the dance track "Bebot" from their 2005 LP Monkey Business means "hot chick" in Tagalog slang.
