Kasunod ng alegasyon ng US-based Filipino nurse na si Jun Rufino Lugod Jr. na siya ang kompositor ng theme song ng The Borrowed Wife, sinabi ng GMA Records na nakikipag-ugnayan sila sa kinomisyong composer na si Agat Obar Morallos para maklaro ang isyu.


Kinuha ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang panig ng GMA Records hinggil sa isyung paggamit umano ng kantang "Sana Lahat Ng Oras" nang walang paalam para sa bagong teleserye ng Kapuso Network, ang The Borrowed Wife.

Isang US-based Filipino nurse na nangngangalang Jun Rufino Lugod Jr. ang nagsasabing siya ang orihinal na kompositor ng theme song ng soap, at hindi si Agat Obar Morallos.

Si Morallos ang kinomisyon ng GMA Records para mag-compose ng kanta na inawit naman ni Rachelle Ann Go para sa teleserye.

Sa naunang panayam ng PEP kay Rufino, via Facebook messaging, sinabi nitong nilikha niya ang kanta noong 1993.

Laking gulat daw niya nang marinig ang kanyang komposisyon sa MTV ng afternoon teleserye ng Kapuso Network.

Nagsimulang umere ang The Borrowed Wife sa afternoon block ng GMA Network noong January 20, 2013.


GMA RECORDS SPEAKS UP. Upang linawin ang isyu, tinawagan ng PEP ang GMA Records kaninang hapon, at nakausap namin sa telepono ang artist at repertoire manager nitong si Kedy Sanchez.

Saad niya, “Ang masasabi ko lang po diyan, GMA Records supposedly… we requested Ms. Agatha [Agat] Morallos...

“She was commissioned by GMA Records, which I am an employee of, to write a song specifically for a teleserye entitled Rhodora X pa nga.”

Ang Rhodora X ay ang bagong GMA primetime series na pinagbibidahan nina Jennylyn Mercado at Yamien Kurdi, na nagsimulang umere ngayong Lunes gabi, January 27.

Kuwento pa ni Sanchez, November 2013 nang kausapin nila si Morallos para sumulat ng theme song para sa Rhodora X.

“By December, she submitted to us a song, which eventually landed [and became] the theme song of The Borrowed Wife."

ADDRESSING THE ISSUE. Patuloy niya, “As far as we’re concerned, we have learned about this issue and we’re trying to see to it.

"And we’re trying to get in touch with Ms. Morallos and the husband, para magbigay sila ng clarificatory statement.

“We still understand it to be a composition controlled by Ms. Morallos.”

Hindi naman daw ito ang unang pagkakataon na pinagawa nila ng kanta si Morallos.

Sabi ni Sanchez, “We have worked with Ms. Morallos for the past eleven years.

“She has a string of hits already.

“Yung huling-huling katrabaho namin siya was Pyra and Villa Quintana, tapos nagulat kami, all of a sudden, meron ganitong claims."

Hindi lang daw para sa mga nabanggit na teleserye ang mga isinulat na theme songs ni Morallos.

“And even for so many other theme songs for previous [teleserye], she has been writing theme songs from different albums.

“Nagulat kami talaga. All of a sudden, there is this issue, but we’re checking.

“Inaalam din namin, ‘Ano ‘to?’ Because we understand we have to clear this up.

“But I do not know this person. Hindi po namin kilala,” pagtukoy niya kay Lugod.

Dagdag niya, “We will check kung ano ho ang nangyari.”

Ipu-pullout ba nila ang kontrobersiyal na kanta sa The Borrowed Wife?

“I think that’s premature,” tugon ni Sanchez.

“At this point, ang importante po naming magawa is to seek a clarification from Ms. Agat [dahil] yun ang claim, e—it is not from Agat.

“Ngayon, ang sabi namin, ‘Hindi, kay Agat.’

"Siya ang nagsasabi [na] kanya, e.

“So we better clear it… first with Ms. Morallos, hindi po ba?”

Sunod na tanong sa GMA Records officer, paano ba namimili ng kanta para sa teleserye ng GMA?

“Either we commission [a composer] to make a song or look for existing songs tapos ise-secure nila yung license...”

Sa sitwasyon ni Morallos, kinomisyon daw nila ito para lumikha ng kanta.

“Since commissioned work na ito, hindi na license ‘yon… dapat mapi-feed na sa amin ang rights nun,” sabi niya.
