Composer Vehnee Saturno feels grateful for the recognition.
OPM icon and composer Vehnee Saturno, who has had a successful 38-year long and counting career, has been recognized by ABS-CBN-owned radio station MOR for his invaluable contribution to Pinoy music.
During the MOR Pinoy Music Awards 2018, some of the most acclaimed artists such as Jessa Zaragoza, Jaya, Jona, Bugoy Drilon, and Daryl Ong performed a medley of hits that the highly-respected composer had written.
"Hindi ko ine-expect na itong MOR eh bibigyan ako ng ganitong klaseng award kaya thankful for recognizing my works," he said after receiving the award.
Saturno, who is the man behind karaoke favorites like "Wala Na Bang Pag-Ibig," "Dahil Tanging Ikaw," "Mula Sa Puso," "Bakit Pa?," and "Forever's Not Enough" also added that he feels thankful that almost all the songs he has made over the years became hits.
"Well, ang isang malaking kumbaga prize sa isang songwriter is kinakanta 'yung kanta mo, na-aappreciate ng market 'yung kanta mo, 'yung songs mo and continuously nandun ka pa rin. At least nadidinig pa nila ang mga pinagsusulat mo na songs para sa Filipino market," the 64-year-old composer stated.
Vehnee Saturno is the recipient of this year's MOR Pinoy Music Awards OPM Lifetime Achievement Award.
