Guji Lorenzana supports Rhap Salazar’s sentiments about non-singers having albums

Singer Guji Lorenzana posts his frustration about how the local music industry works: “Me being someone who wants to have my original music heard, and not given the proper chance because of the way the industry here works, it’s sad.”


Sinuportahan ng singer-actor na si Guji Lorenzana ang mga pahayag ni Rhap Salazar tungkol sa mga artistang hindi professional singers pero nabibigyan ng pagkakataong gumawa ng music albums.

Matatandaang lumikha ng ingay ang tweets ni Rhap—itinanghal na grand champion sa ABS-CBN kiddie singing contest na Little Big Star noong 2005—dahil umalma ang mga tagasuporta ng mga sikat na artistang non-singers pero may mga music albums.

Ito ay kahit hindi pinangalanan ni Rhap kung sinu-sino ang kanyang mga tinutukoy.

Pero sa nasabing isyu, nabanggit ang mga pangalan nina Maja Salvador, Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo, Enchong Dee, Nadine Lustre, at James Reid na pawng may music albums.

“I am glad Rhap's opinion trended. Because I agree,” bungad ng singer sa kanyang post noong Martes, July 7.

“Me being someone who wants to have my original music heard, and not given the proper chance because of the way the industry here works, it's sad.”

Ayon pa sa singer-actor, dahil sa malaking problema sa piracy, nagiging sigurista lamang ang producers na sumugal sa mga artista na kahit hindi professional singers ay tiyak namang makakakuha ng malaking suporta.

Ani Guji, “But it's everyone's fault, in the Philippines we still have a huge piracy problem. And these labels can't survive with a sure hit. It just sucks we have come to this.

“So I commend those who have spoken up, and those organizations that try to keep OPM alive, as well as all the indie artist who use social media like YouTube because that's all they can do.

“I don't blame the higher ups because some have no choice if selling out is the only choice to stay open, but you can't blame the struggling artist either for being upset.

“It just sucks!

“I just wish maybe the higher and wannabe artists can have a little more respect for the art, and keep trying to push quality and artistry.

“Let's educate. It all starts with education. My two cents,” saad ni Guji.
