Iñigo Pascual’s ‘Dahil Sa’yo’ enters Filscap’s ‘Top 5’
MANILA, Philippines — Iñigo Pascual’s 2016 hit song “Dahil Sa’yo” has continued to earn recognition in the music scene as it entered Filipino Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers’ (Filscap) “Top 5” songs in 2018.
Pascual announced the news in an Instagram post on Sunday and shared how this song changed his life.
“It’s been two years since I first released this song and my life has been a crazy rollercoaster since,” Pascual wrote.
It’s still unbelievable for him how people know this song every time he performs it: “Hindi pa din ako makapinawala everytime nagperperform ako at narinig kong alam nyo ang kantang ako lang dati ang may kabisado.”
The 21-year-old singer also vowed: “I will never stop writing songs.”
Pascual then thanked his fans for their support to his music and promised, “Mas magaaral pa ako at mas pagbubutihan ko pa.”
He added: “Salamat din sa Filscap, sa pagbibigay ng importansya at suporta sa mga musikerot/musikera. Mabuhay ang OPM!”
“Dahil Sa’yo” dominated the Billboard Philippines charts for weeks when it was released and was named “Song of the Year” at the 30th Awit Awards.
Filscap is a non-stock, non-profit society of composers, lyricists, and music publishers in the Philippines responsible for granting music users the legal permission to publicly play, broadcast, or make available copyrighted musical compositions of its members. /jpv
