BINI addressed the claim about a religious content creator accusing their hit song “Salamin, Salamin” of spreading witchcraft, saying they are not taking it seriously.

“Salamin, Salamin” is the lead track of their first EP “Talaarawan” which was released last March 8 and coincided with International Women’s Day. It also includes the tracks “Karera,” “Pantropiko,” “Ang Huling Cha Cha,” “Na Na Nandito Lang,” and “Diyan Ka Lang.”


In a Facebook post, content creator Follow Jesus Ministry accused BINI of “spreading witchcraft” and promoting “worldly music” through their hit song “Salamin, Salamin,” while reminding its followers to “choose [their] music wisely.”


“Let’s choose our music wisely to nurture our souls and to bring us closer to God. Beware sa mga Christian, preachers, pastors, ministers na walang nakikitang mali sa pakikinig ng mga worldly music,” it wrote. “‘Salamin Salamin’ is a witchcraft song. Please wake up church.”

The post has since garnered over 6,600 reactions and 2,300 shares on Facebook, as of press time.

Despite this, the P-pop girl group said they found the claim to be “funny” at a press conference for an e-commerce platform held recently.

“Actually, nakita ko po ‘yung post na ‘yun. Nakakatawa po (I actually saw that particular post. I found it funny),” Colet said in response to entertainment journalist MJ Marfori’s question about the topic.

“Natatawa na lang po kami na may gan’ung nabubuong kwento and theories ang mga tao (We just found the entire thing to be funny, as others would make up stories and theories about us),” she added.

Maloi, meanwhile, branded the claims as “fake news,” reiterating that “Salamin, Salamin” is just a good song.

“Fake news po. Hindi po witchcraft ang ‘Salamin, Salamin.’ Maganda lang po ‘yung song (It’s just fake news. ‘Salamin, Salamin’ doesn’t promote witchcraft. The song is just nice),” she said.

The eight-member girl group rose in popularity after their 2023 track “Pantropiko” went viral on social media.
