Gloc-9 spoke about life’s “hints of magic” as he recalled how he wrote and released the gay anthem “Sirena” in 2012, without knowing at the time about his son Daniel being gay.

The rapper said this in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN on Monday, Feb. 26, after he was asked on his reaction to the LGBTQIA+ community “fully embracing” his song.


“Yung song na ‘yan, nung ire-release namin ‘yan, takot na takot ako. Takot na takot dahil ayaw kong makainsulto ng tao,” he admitted.


“Alam ko kasi nung sinulat ko ‘yan, hindi ko tsinelas o sapatos ‘yung suot-suot ko. Ako’y nagsuot ng ibang sapatos o tsinelas,” he continued. “Kaya ako natatakot kasi ayaw kong may naisulat ako dun na baka: ‘E sira ulo pala ito, hindi naman ‘to ganyan e.’”

Despite his initial fears, Gloc-9 seemed to have felt relief after receiving positive responses and even messages of gratitude from individuals who have gay loved ones.

“‘Yung mga songs, binibigay lang ‘yan e. I believe pinapahiram lang ‘yan. Pag binitawan namin ‘yan, hindi na amin ‘yan; hindi na kami ‘yan,” he told the news outlet.

“May mga songs na binigay sa akin na…,” the rapper said as he took a pause and broke into tears. “My son is gay. Nung sinulat ko ‘yun, hindi niya pa sinasabi sa amin. Hindi ko alam kung paano ko sasabihin sa anak ko na, kung gaano ko siya kamahal.”

Gloc-9 underscored how he felt overjoyed because in retrospect, he was blessed with a song that served as a “gift” not only for him but also for his son.


“Hindi naman ako ma-showbiz pero I think para sabihin ko ito now, ako ay proud na proud sa anak ko. Ako ay excited sa kung ano man ang kaya niyang ma-achieve sa buhay niya,” the artist emphasized.

“Minsan iniisip ko, it’s how life gives you hints of magic here and there,” he added. “Nung natapos ko ‘yung ‘Sirena’ hindi ko naman alam e, and I don’t mind. Anak ko ‘yun e.”
