“Parokya Ni Edgar” frontman Chito Miranda has come to the defense of rapper Gloc-9, who drew flak for performing at the campaign rallies of the camp of Vice President Jejomar Binay.

Miranda took to Instagram to show support for his friend and fellow artist.


“Relax ka lang parekoy! Smart people will understand and respect you…the others who don’t, don’t matter,” Miranda said in a short message.

Gloc-9, whose songs are known for having socially relevant themes, earned the ire of netizens after being seen performing during the proclamation rally of Binay’s daughter and Makati mayoral candidate Abby.

The rapper said he respects the views of other people, maintaining that his appearance in Binay rallies was just part of his job and nothing personal.

“Ako ay kumakanta sa entablado ng ibat ibang kandidato marahil ay hindi nyo lang gusto ang isang entabladong sinampahan ko,” Gloc-9 said.

(I perform on stage for different candidates and perhaps you didn’t like this recent one I did.)

“Katulad ng lahat may kanya kanyang dungis na ibinabato sa bawat isa sa kanila gayon paman I wish all the candidates good luck sa darating na elections at naway ang mapipili ay tunay na mag sisilbi at tamang mamumuno sa bayan natin,” he wrote on Instagram.

(Like everyone else, each has his or her own dirt thrown at each other but I wish all the candidates good luck in the coming elections and hopefully, the chosen one will truthfully serve and lead our country.) YG
