Showbiz Buzz: Francis Magalona dead @ 44

At around 12:20pm, the famous king of Philippine rap, actor and TV host died at the age of 44 at The Medical City. It was August 8, 2008 when the actor made known of his sickness (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia - AML) to the public and since then Francis Magalona showed nothing but strong faith to God, a very strong and inspiring view of what he was undergoing through and continues the loved for his craft.

Francis Magalona or Kiko to his friends was the son of 1950's legendary actors and celebrity couple Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran. Among the hit rap songs he made are “Mga Kababayan Ko,” “Ito ang Gusto Ko,” “Meron Akong Ano,” “Mga Praning,” and “Kaleidoscope World.” He left behind his wife Pia Arroyo and eight children--Unna, Nicolo, Francis Jr., Isabella, Elmo, Arkin, Clara, and actress Maxene Magalona.

What made Francis’ songs different from other rap songs was that he was able to mix rap music and love for being a Filipino. He made songs that truly left a mark in every Filipino’s heart, young and old, rapper or not.
