Long Live Francis Magalona!


Francis Michael Durango Magalona
October 4, 1964 - March 6, 2009

Francis Michael Durango Magalona, also known as "Francis M" , "Kiko" and "The Master Rapper", is the first Filipino rapper who launched a rap album (Yo!) during the early 90's.

Francis is the son of the late Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran who were also well-known artists during their time.

He's not just a rapper, he's also a good photographer, actor, dancer, host, and a nationalist. Everyone can see his love for his country from the lyrics and theme of his songs (e.g. "Mga Kababayan Ko", "Kaleidoscope World"). His being patriotic had also pushed him to start a clothing business, 3 Stars and A Sun, where all designs are obviously very nationalistic.

During his happy battle with Leukemia, Francis Magalona and his family remained strong. He still tried to live a normal life with a very positive outlook in life and a very strong faith in God. But after 7 months (March 6, 2009 at 12 noon), he lost his battle. He went peacefully, leaving his family and friends memories... good memories that they, and everyone of us, will always treasure.

We will miss you, Kiko! Bye Francis Magalona! You will always stay in our hearts!

The Master Rapper is now back home with his Master.
