Members of P-pop group SB19 have paid tribute to their parents ahead of the release of their new song “MAPA” on May 16.

The young artists have taken to social media today, May 8, to post their heartwarming tributes to their mamas and papas, which seem to be the focus of the upcoming track.

Justin was the first to post his tribute under the official Twitter and Instagram pages of SB19, where he praised and thanked his mother for taking good care of him despite battling a skin disease.

“#DearMAPA, anim na taon na ang nakalipas ng madiagnose ka sa sakit na ‘Scleroderma’. Gabi gabi kong naririnig ang hikbi ng iyong mga iyak. Hindi ka makatulog sa sakit na nararamdaman mo,” he said.

(#DearMAPA, it has been six years since you were diagnosed with scleroderma. Every night, I could hear you cry. You could not sleep due to the pain you were feeling.)

“Masakit para sa akin na makita kang nanghihina at nalulungkot dahil sa mga pinagdadaanan mo. Pero pinakita mo sa akin na kaya mo. Pilit kang tatayo sa madaling araw para maghanda ng aming kakainin bago pumasok sa trabaho at skwela,” Justin added.

(It hurt me to see you getting weakened and depressed over the struggles you were facing. But you still showed me that you could overcome it. You would force yourself to wake up early in the morning to prepare food for us before we went to work and school.)

“Naalala ko ang tanong ko sa’yo noon, ano ang pangarap mo noong bata ka pa. Ang sabi mo ay ‘Ito, magkaroon ng masayang pamilya, maayos na tahanan, at magandang kusina.’ Ngayon, naiintindihan ko na; alam ko na kung gaano mo kamahal ang ginagawa mo na kailanma’y hindi ka huminto, dahil kami ang pangarap mo,” Justin recalled.

(I can still remember when I asked you back then what your dream was when you were still young. You answered,  ‘It’s this. To have a happy family, a good home and a beautiful kitchen. Now, I understand; I know how much you love what you are doing and you never stopped doing it, because we were your dream.)

“Dahil dito ay higit akong ginanahan lumaban at tuparin ang pangarap ko at pangarap mo. [Nagsilbi] kang inspirasyon sa aming magkakapatid. Maraming salamat sa patuloy na pag-laban, Ma,” he added.

(Because of this, I became more inspired to fulfill both my and your dreams. You served as an inspiration to me and my siblings. Thank you very much for never giving up, Ma.)

SB19’s Josh was the second to share his tribute, which he also made to his mother as he remembered the first time they went out after five years of not seeing each other.

“#DearMAPA, isa ito sa mga di malilimutan na pagkakataon na nagkasama tayo,” Josh said in the post that came with a photo of him and his mother eating at a restaurant. (#DearMAPA, this is one of the times we were together that I will never forget.)

“Hindi naman talaga natin ugali ang kumain sa labas dahil nga sa hirap ng buhay. Hindi normal ang mga pinagdaanan ng pamilya natin, at masasabi kong isa sa mga pinaka hindi magandang karanasan para sa isang pamilya,” he shared.

(It is not really our style to go out to eat because of our struggles in life. What our family went through is not normal, and I can say that it is one of the worst things one family can ever experience.)

“Kinailangan ko ulit lumayo para sa kalusugan ng aking puso’t isipan. Hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin maganda ang takbo ng ating buhay at pamilya. Alam ko na nahihirapan ka lumaban dahil hinahabol ka pa rin ng nakaraan,” Josh added.

(I needed to go away again for both my mental and emotional health. Until now, our family is still not in a good place. I know that you are struggling to fight because you are still being chased by your past.)

“Hindi magiging madali itong laban na ito. Marami na tayong pagsubok na hinarap at naniniwala ako na malalampasan rin natin ito. Gusto ko na magsilbi na lakas mo ang mensahe na ito para ipagpatuloy ang laban. Kumapit ka at ako na ang bahala, Ma,” the doting son emphasized.

(This fight will not be easy. We have faced many challenges before and I believe that we will overcome this one as well. I want that this message will serve as your strength to continue the fight. Keep holding on and I got your back, Ma.)

SB19’s Ken then followed suit by paying tribute to both his mother and father as he assured them that they will see each other again soon.

“#DearMAPA, thank you so so much for everything that you’ve done for us. I understand kung ba’t di kayo nakakauwi, I understand kung ba’t wala kayo sa tabi ko ngayon. Thank you so much Ma, Pa dahil lumaki kami ng maayos ng ate ko,” he said.

(#DearMAPA, thank you so so much for everything that you’ve done for us. I understand why you cannot go home, I understand why you are not by my side now. Thank you so much Ma, Pa because you raised me and my sister well.)

“Mahal ko kayo, kahit di ko sinasabi to. Alagaan n’yo sarili n’yo. Balang araw magkikita tayo at makakasama ko kayo ulit,” Ken added in the post, which came with a photo of him and his mother.

(I love you, even though I did not say it. Take care of yourselves. Someday, we will finally see each other and be together again.)

Stell was the fourth of his SB19 co-members to post his tribute, which he likewise gave to both his mother and father.

“#DearMAPA, salamat sa binigay niyong buhay. Hindi naging madali sa inyo ang buhay na kinagisnan namin pero ginawa niyo ang lahat para maitaguyod kami at ihanda kami sa buhay,” Stell said in the post, which was accompanied by a photo of his parents.

(#DearMAPA, thank you for the life you gave me. It was not easy for you to attain the level of life we knew, but you did everything you could to help us and prepare us for life.)

“Ipinapamulat niyo samin na hindi hadlang ang pagsubok o kahirapan sa pag abot ng mga pangarap at hindi nasusukat sa karangyaan ang pagiging masaya. Maging kayo ay pinag daanan lahat ng pagsubok kahit nasasaktan kayo mas pinili niyo na kayo ang mahirapan at hindi kaming mga anak niyo. Salamat dahil hindi niyo kami sinukuan at hinanap niyo kami nung naliligaw kami ng landas,” he added.

(You made us realize that challenges and poverty were not going to stop us from reaching our dreams and that we cannot measure wealth when it comes to happiness.)

“Salamat Ma Pa. Mahal na mahal namin kayo. Sana masaya kayo sa buhay na meron tayo, ako nang bahala sa inyo. Magbago man ang mundo, kayo padin ang pipiliin kong Ma-Pa kahit sa susunod na buhay pa,” the loving son said.

(Thank you, Ma and Pa. We love you very much. I hope you are happy with the life we have now, I have your back. Even if the world changes, I will still choose both of you as my Ma and Pa even in the next life.)

SB19’s Pablo was the last to post his tribute to his parents, whom he wholeheartedly thanked for everything they have done for him and his siblings.

“Hindi sapat yung isang araw para pasalamatan ko kayo sa lahat ng ginawa at sinakripisyo nyo para saming magkakapatid, Ma, Pa,” Pablo emphasized in the post that came with an old family photo. “Hindi man namin lage nasasabi sa inyo, mahal na mahal namin kayo nina Kuya Keb, Josh, Chi at Mik.”

(One day is not enough to thank you for everything that you have done and sacrificed for me and my siblings, Ma, Pa. We may not say this often but I, Kuya Keb, Josh, Chi and Mik love you very much.)

“Gusto namin ibalik lahat ng pagmamahal na binigay nyo samin kase kayo yung pinaka importante sa buhay namin. Hindi natin hawak ang oras sa mundo pero I’d give anything para mabalik lang yung lakas at sigla nyo nang makasama pa namin kayo ng mas matagal,” the doting son added.

(We want to reciprocate all the love you gave us as you two are the most important people in our lives. We do not have control over time but I’d give anything just to give you back your strength and energy so you can spend more time with us.)

“Gusto namin akuin na lahat para makapag pahinga na kayo at ma-enjoy nyo yung buhay ng walang iniisip. Yun lang naman po gusto ko sa buhay,” Pablo said.

(We want to just take care of everything so you can rest and enjoy life without worrying about other things. That is all I want in life.)

“Mahal na mahal namin kayo Ma, Pa. Papa, mag iingat po kayo dyan, alam ko po gustong gusto nyo na umuwi. Sana dumating na agad yung panahon na yon para magkasama-sama na tayo,” he then ended his tribute.

(We love you very much, Ma and Pa. Papa, please take care over there, I know that you really want to go home. I hope that that day comes so we can be finally together again.)

SB19 will also seemingly give their fans – referred to as A’TIN – a chance to share their own tributes to their parents tomorrow, May 9, as shared on their scheduler posted on Twitter earlier today.

SB19 will be dropping their new song along with its lyric video on May 16. Around a week later, on May 24, SB19 will be vying for the Top Social Artist title at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards.

They will be going against American artist Ariana Grande and K-pop groups Blackpink, Seventeen and BTS. SB19 is the first Filipino act to be nominated in the said category.  /ra
