Michael Pacquiao’s viral rap song ‘Hate’ receives mixed reactions from fellow musicians

Jason Dhakal stated in his tweet that stuff like Michael Pacquiao’s song ‘Hate’ is making him “want to stop making music.”

  • Frankie Pangilinan and Quest also stated their take on the issue.
  • Michael’s Wish Bus performance now has almost 7 million views on YouTube.

18-year-old Michael Pacquiao is currently trying to establish his own name, not as an athlete like his father Manny Pacquiao, but as a rapper. He has performed his new song ‘Hate’ on the Wish 107.5 Bus and has uploaded clips on his social media accounts.

He created the song with Michael Bars whom he also collaborated with on the song “Pac-Man” which was inspired by his dad.

But not everyone took it positively.

Jason Dhakal quote-retweeted a video of Michael rapping with the caption, “shit like this makes me want to stop making music honestly lol.” The tweet has earned more than 3,000 retweets and 24,000 likes.

Netizens called Jason out for being “problematic” as he seemed to have directed the tweet as slander to Michael.

Jason then explained his side by quote retweeting a netizen who was trying to explain that the caption wad not directed to Michael but for the music industry “for accepting mediocrity.”

Frankie Pangilinan defended Jason saying that he’s talented and many other artists like him deserve more hype. She also said that she understood his sentiments as he has been working so hard but was beaten by something mediocre.

“It‘s not Michael’s fault either it’s nobody’s fault it’s just a flaw in the cultural landscape we can hopefully repair one day soon,” she wrote.

On the other hand, Quest shared his own journey to becoming a musician saying that there will be a lot of challenges along the way, but the most important thing is to keep growing and moving forward.

He then said that he had a lot of failures at fist but even with all the drawbacks, he had no plans of stopping.


Michael Pacquiao’s Wish Bus performance now has more than 6.8 million views.
