Ayus din yung tugtugan ng anak ni Pacquiao a…nakakabilib. Orig nya ba yun? Kung oo, sobrang astig. Kung hindi, ok lang…ang galing nya pa rin.🤟🏼😎

“Orig [niya] ba [‘yun]? Kung oo, sobrang astig. Kung hindi, ok lang…ang galing [niya] pa rin (Was that his original [song]? If yes, super cool. If not, it’s ok… he is still good),” he added, though he did not specify which of Michael’s tracks he was referring to.
Michael went viral last week for singing his latest tune “Hate” on the radio station Wish 107.5. The station posted a video of his performance on its YouTube channel on Aug. 5.
The video has gained over 7.9 million views, as of this writing. “Hate” is part of Michael’s debut album “Dreams,” which has no release date yet as of the moment.
Prior to the said performance, he worked with his friend Michael Bars to produce the song “Pac-Man,” which was inspired by his father, boxing legend and senator Manny. /ra
