Karencitta’s plan to quit music earns mixed reactions from netizens

“How are we going to bring OPM on to the international scale if our own country is not playing their own music? When we’re idolizing other people’s music? I think we should play more OPM music on radio. Monday to Sunday, 24 hours on the clock. I swear, if radio stations don’t do this by tomorrow, IDK’s gonna be my last single, I quit music.”

“I swear if radio stations don’t do this by tomorrow, ‘IDK’ is going to be my last single. I quit music.” This is what “Cebuana” singer Karencitta said when she aired her frustrations by uploading a video on Facebook.

The singer demanded that radio stations play OPM (Original Pinoy Music) 24 hours everyday. If radio stations will not comply with her demand, she will bid goodbye music goodbye.

“How are we going to bring OPM on to the international scale if our own country is not playing their own music? When we’re idolizing other people’s music? I think we should play more OPM music on radio. Monday to Sunday, 24 hours on the clock. I swear, if radio stations don’t do this by tomorrow, IDK’s gonna be my last single, I quit music.”

Karencitta’s statement earned mixed reactions from netizens, some of them do not even care if the “Cebuana” singer will stop producing more songs.

A Twitter user named Paulus_sapien said that OPM has been rising over the years and maybe it is Karencitta’s music that fails to attract listeners.

Three netizens questioned if Karencitta’s song lyrics even have a deeper meaning. It also seems Karencitta has failed to win the heart of listeners, even her fellow Cebuanas

Other netizens poked fun at Karencitta’s statement:

Meanwhile, there were a few netizens who agreed with Karencitta’s statement. They believe Karencitta should not quit music just because of favoritism.

But rather, she must continue doing music as passion.

Furthermore, OPM has continued to rise since January this year, as Spotify noticed that almost 80% of Top 20 most-discovered were actually OPM artists.

OPM is also making waves like “Kahit Ayaw Mo na” by This Band on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Chart. In line with this, Ben & Ben, December Avenue, and I Belong to the Zoo are just some of the rising OPM artists that people love to listen on Spotify nowadays.
