Francis Magalona: A Man of Many Names

Francis Magalona’s work made a tremendous impact on the Filipino music industry, especially in the hip-hop and rap scene. Hailed as The Filipino King of Rap, he had other hobbies such as photography and dancing. His legacy lives on through FMCC (FrancisM Clothing Co.), his line of clothes which he sold in a store called 3 Stars & A Sun, and the Hearts Foundation which he established with Ely Buendia to help Filipino artists who have health and commercial concerns.

He’s not the only one they visited!

Besides the visit to celebrate his 14th death anniversary, Saab Magalona posted a photo of her boys staying with their Ate Luna Isabel, Pancho’s twin who sadly passed away because of health complications. Saab captured a picture of her boys spending their time on their graves, writing. “The boys seemed very clingy to their Ate Luna hehe,” she then adds, laughing. “And I’m sure pop is loving that his grandkids are dancing on his grave, proving that showmanship runs in the family😅🤣”

His memory lives on…

Francis Magalona’s memory lives in his grandkids and even his own children. After Jim posted a reel of Vito playing the drums, some even said that Vito may have gotten his grandfather’s knack for rhythm. Even Maxene Magalona recorded her rendition of Kaleidoscope World, in time for World Mental Health Day. But besides being a rapper who won the Filipinos’ hearts, he was a beloved father to the Magalona family.
