Director of the Film Academy of the Philippines Vivian Velez called out Star Magic because of Kim Chiu’s viral guesting on Wish FM which was criticized by a lot of netizens.
“C’mmon! Who is managing this girl? Star Magic of Abs? Napaglalaruan… she’s making history in Wish Bus as having the most thumbs down 👎 tsk tsk tsk”
Recently, a flood of dislikes and negative comments were received by Kim when she was featured on Wish 107.5 for her newest single “Bawal Lumabas” which was created from her viral classroom analogy,
Netizens were disappointed that Kim got featured as they believe she has no singing talent.
You used to admire Wish 107.5 for staging local artists to perform their original songs and promote them to mainstream. Then you hypocrites want to diss the station for granting Kim Chiu's wish to sing her "Bawal Lumabas" song inside Wish Bus?????? That's unfair

Business parin, ganun naman ang law sa advertising at media, dapat mas sikat ang kukunin mo para tangkilikin ang products/services. Syempre pipili sila ng artists na malakas sa masa at malakas ang monetization. Malungkot ito marami sa legit na singers pero ganun talaga yun eh. 😊
