Francis Magalona is dead! HE succumbed to multiple organ failure due to sepsis and pneumonia. He was 44 years old.

Francis M was diagnosed with leukemia August of last year. He had been undergoing blood transfusion and chemotherapy and we all thought he was on his way to remission. It seems that he was too weak to battle off the secondary infections brought about by his weakened immune system. He was supposed to sing a song with the Eraserheads in tonight's concert at the Mall of Asia. The son of Philippines Movie idols of the 50's Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran, Francis is a well respected rapper, song writer, producer, actor, director, host. He is survived by his wife Pia and their children Maxene, Saab, Unna, Nicolo, Francis Jr., Elmo, Arkin, and Clara. His remains lies in state at the Christ the King Church in Quezon City.

It seems like only yesterday that my kids (and the rest of the Pinoys) were strutting to Francis M's Mga Kababayan Ko. He will be missed.

  1. I never heard any news about him for several years so I was shocked. May he rest in peace and his inspirational song Mga Kababayan Ko will remain in our heart.

  2. Oh my....that is just sad. I also thought he's going to make it kasi he seemed to be doing well kahit medyo payat.

    May he rest in peace.
