- The singer behind the hit “Buwan,” JK Labajo, reposted a comic strip on how Filipinos appreciate the artists
- The comic strip accurately depicts the behavior of the Filipino audience in supporting international artists against local artists
- Netizens agreed and shared their insights about the situation
- Some netizens expressed their support to cheer up the young singer
Juan Karlos Labajo, also known as JK, the singer behind the hot music “Buwan,” recently shared a comic strip with very accurate and bold representation of how some people supports various artists.
The comic strip depicts how warm the Filipinos are when it comes to international Filipino-blooded artists. Well, we can’t deny that this is accurate and true, especially if the upcoming stars abroad have the next-of-kin or blood relations with a Filipino. The truth hurts that locally, instead of supporting the brilliant and world-class talents that Pinoys have, most people bash them and drag them down rather than supporting what they do.
The post didn’t have a caption, as the comic strip says it all.
Netizens agreed on the post and shared their insights about it.
“Tas pag biglang sumikat, dun lang susuporta 🤭😂”
“Never seen a comic representation about indie artists as real as this one. well we love you and your music. genuinely.”

“Then once na sumikat, susuporta na bigla and yung mga iba diyan ay “fan” daw talaga sila… fdfdfsjqyqjads. Support these guys because of their works, the art behind it and quality of ’em, not *just* because pogi/maganda etc. Well, someone had to say it. \(._.)/”

“Well sad but it’s true, kelan kaya magigising mga pinoy no? 🤔 Lalo na yong nag papakamatay sa pag suporta sa mga K-pop artist na di naman nila maintindihan ang language ng mga yun, ang mamahal pa ng mga ticket pag nag concert sa pinas, kaloka!”
“Real talk. But i believe in your talent and we are here to support your music😍”
