Nonito Donaire Jr. on Andrew E: ‘He was such an inspiration for me”
040716-AndrewNonito_PUSH.jpgSa ulat ni Dyan Castillejo para sa TV Patrol, ginawan ni Andrew E. ng entrance song si WBO Super Bantamweight Champion Nonito Donaire Jr. para sa nalalapit na laban nito kay Zsolt Bedak sa darating na Abril 23 sa Cebu City Sports Center. Ang title ng kanta ay “Nandito Na Siya.” 

Ayon kay Nonito, matagal na niyang idolo si Andrew. “He was such an inspiration for me because he was this kid, and he was always playing the bullied kind of person. Parang he was always the underdog, he was always playing the underdog and for me parang he was like, ‘wow this is my idol, this is my hero.’ Because that's how I was, that's how I felt, you know, growing up.” 

Isa rin namang karangalan para kay Andrew ang gawan ng kanta ang isang boksingero katulad ni Nonito. “That's more of a tantamount of a monumental move for my career. I only do songs for the entertainment of it, meaning yung sa mga, may I say no, yung mga the usual fans, the usual rap fans. For a certain boxer (with) his status, no. I said yes, kumbaga it's a blind yes.” 

Kinailangan mag-usap ng dalawa ng long distance para lang mabuo nila ang kanta. Kwento ni Andrew, “nahirapan (ako) from the point where I would have to match the lyrics. But the melody’s, it’s already done. Probably kung nakapasa siya by the hum, I think get the idea na magugustuhan niya.” 

Sa ring kakantahin ni Andrew ang “Nandito Na Siya” habang papasok si Nonito sa world title fight.
