If you purchased tickets please get your money back. Those events were unauthorized Pia Arroyo-Magalona wife of the late Francis Magalona warned this people already. Shame on them capitalizing on the remise of a great artist. Where is your R.E.S.P.E.C.T. people?
Here is Pia’s reply to those scammers:
On the Tribute To Francis M event (link here but her comment was deleted by the organizer, event broadcast on Facebook was deleted but we are not sure if the real event was cancelled and the people who bought the tickets got refund. Shame on you!)
“This is Pia, the late FrancisM’s wife.
My attention was called to this site by my daughters and I am quite disappointed that you are holding an event using his name and persona to make money off without my express permission.
Did you even course this through the Philippine NATIONAL Red Cross? If so, why is their name on your invitation wrong? It just says Philippine Red Cross. It’s very haphazard. I am terribly, terribly hurt by this. I hope you could respect me and my dearly beloved’s memory by not exploiting his death.
What you are doing goes against the values Francis wrote about in his songs. This is exactly what he spoke of when he wrote those lyrics speaking of graft, corruption and greed.
Do the right thing.
Still from Pia on a thread:
