  • Janno Gibbs will not stop smoking even though the prices goes up
  • The singer song writer was even bashed because of his sentiments

Singer-songwriter Janno Gibbs shared his sentiments on the additional excise tax on cigarettes that government plans to implement.

The Department of Finance (DOF) and Department of Health (DOH) are pursuing an increase in excise tax on cigarettes to stop or decrease smoking here in the country..

On Department of Finance’s Facebook Page, they asked: “SA TINGIN NINYO: Anong rate ang dapat ipasa ng Kongreso sa panukalang pagtaas ng excise taxes sa sigarilyo? 🤔 BAKIT NGA BA KAILANGANG TAASAN ANG EXCISE TAXES SA SIGARILYO? Isinusulong ng DOF at DOH ang pagtaas ng excise taxes sa sigarilyo para mailihis ang mga kabataan sa bisyo at para sa pangmatagalang pondo ng Universal Health Care. HINDI PA TAPOS ANG LABAN. Suportahan ang panukalang itaas ang sin taxes para sa Universal Health Care at para sa kalusugan ng bawat Pilipino! UPDATE NA at ipakita ang inyong suporta: #TaxReformNow #RaiseSinTaxesforUHC #RaiseSinTaxesforHealth”

On his Instagram account, Janno Gibbs posted a picture of himself smoking along with the caption: “I’m a smoker kaligayahan ko na ito. Raising product prices won’t make me stop.”

Gibbs added that he makes sure that smokes far away from non-smokers.

“In smoking ban: I always make it a point to get away from non smokers… so they are not affected.”

Netizens were seemingly displeased with his post and slammed him for continuing to smoke.

Some even believe that because his smoking has caused his voice to become hoarse.
