The former Eraserheads frontman, Ely Buendia, is back with new music but some fans aren’t too happy about it.
They believe he is being too critical of the current administration in his new release dubbed “Metro.”
Apparently, they don’t think he has the right to do so.
Some of the comments:
“Akala mo kung sino magaling, di mo nga maayos banda mo e…”
“Isa rin itong nagdudunong-dunongan, pwe!”
“So disappointed with Ely…”
But what did he say in the song, really?
Part of the lyrics read:
“Panahon na upang imulat ang mata sa katotohanan, pandemya at kawalan ng kabuhayan, asan na ang nawawalang lupa’t pera?”
“Bagsak ang ekonomiya, di ka ba nagtataka? Pinunong may talino, puso at tapang, ito ang kailangan ng ating bayan…”
“Kapatid di pa ba nagsasawa? Tumatakbo ang metro, isa lang ang iyong pagpipilian: Pangulo ba o pang gulo?”
We don’t get it.
It actually sounds as if he is just simply exhorting fellow Pinoys to pick a better leader for next time.
Which is apt as based on the description box, he wrote it for We Need A Leader PH, a non-partisan voters education advocacy.
But disgruntled fans don’t care.
One said, “Bayaran, dilawan!”
Another added, “Makapagsalita ka! Ikaw kaya umupo bilang pangulo? Basta pro-admin pa rin ako! Ibasura si Ely!”
Is it just us or naysayers actually believe the song applies to those currently in power?
