  • According to him, the original phrase sounded “too defeatist.”
  • Citizens slammed Tito for wasting time.

Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III suggested to change a phrase in the national athem’s lyrcs. In the said suggestion, Tito asked to replace “ang mamatay nang dahil sa’yo” to “ang ipaglaban ang kalayaan mo.”

According to Sotto, the original phrase sounded “too defeatist.”

Changing the lyrics.

In a Twitter post, Tito slammed citizens who didn’t want the lyrics of ‘Lupang Hinirang’ changed.

“Maraming mahina intindimiento. Ayaw nyo? Hwag! But i will support Joey Ayala’s version of singing di Natnl Anthem. Tama pronunciation n intonation. D orig translation frm spanish to eng Fil is d cause of d wrong cadence of words.”

Wanting it as it is.

Netizens pointed out that Tito doesn’t own the National Anthem. Therefore, he doesn’t have the right to change the lyrics just because he wanted to.

“The thing is.. HINDI lang sayo ang Pambansang Awit!!! So DON’T be surprised if some of us.. WANTS it as it is.”

“Ang mamatay nang dahil sa’yo Meaning kamatayan lang ang tutuldok sa pagtatanggol sa bansa. Magkamatayan na huwag niyo lang apihin. Ganoon ang ibig sabihin non. Napakaganda ng gustong sabihin ng kanta bakit kelangan pang palitan nakakabobo.hay nko”

“just give priority to the problem of the country like traffic, transportation, flood, inflation rate, pag angkat ng pagkain, bigas gayung ang dami nating resources. Yan na muna. Para sa ekonomiya!”

“”Ayaw nyo? Hwag!” Yan ang Senate president? Parang nakipagusap sa kanto, o kaya batang di napagbigyan! How immature! Balik ka nlng sa eat bulaga dun talaga bagay mga ideas mo 😅

“”Ang mamatay nang dahil sa’yo” is not defeatist. It means ‘country above self’. Mukhang kayo po ang mahina ang intindi.”

“Gawa ka ng anthem sarili mong anthem kung gusto mo, wag mo na kaming idamay sa kalokohan na to. Daming problem ng bansa yan pa ang uunahin talaga. 😤

“Yun pong mababang 2019 budget sa social services ang unahin. Yung issue ng inflation, traffic, public works, disaster relief, etc.”

“Hiyang hiya si Julian Felipe sayo. We’d choose a real poet over a plagiarizer like you.”



The change has yet to be decided on.
