MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler, the least-trusted news brand in the Philippines whose CEO Maria Ressa is a convicted criminal, is about to fact–check “Maid In Malacañang” theme song, ‘Dahil Sa Iyo’ as recorded by singer Daryl Ong.
Rappler, the ultimate authority in all things anti-Marcos, will look into whether Ong was in tune and if the song lyrics were accurate.
In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Ressa said it is her blog’s responsibility to ensure that there was no historical revisionism in the recording of this song classic, made popular by no less than former First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos.
In the music video, Ong is seen singing parts of the song inside what appeared to be Mrs. Marcos’ closet of shoes. “We will have to check if the shoes were authentic,” Ressa added.
