Sephy Francisco on life before international exposure: ‘Dati 25 songs, 1,500 lang’


Former I Can See Your Voice Philippines and South Korea, and X Factor UK contestant Sephy Francisco has officially released her debut single. 

Sephy’s song, titled “Galing Ng Pinoy,” is a reflection of his own experiences, which are all about the victories of the Filipinos in the local and international arena. 

Released on the week of the SEA Games opening, Sephy made it clear that it has been long planned to put it out on digital streaming platforms last November 25. 

“Naplano na po namin siya before. Hindi lang matuloy-tuloy kasi may mga events po tayong kinantahan muna,” she shared. 

She added: “So parang hindi po namin nabigyan muna ng focus ‘yung kanta. Pero nung time na free na ako, na libre na kami ni manager, nag-focus na kami. Tapos nagkataon na SEA Games pala. Hindi po namin na-foresee na may SEA Games.”

Meanwhile, the Trans Dual Diva shared how her life changed since she appeared in international singing competitions - including the X Factor UK where she received a standing ovation from the show’s judges. 

“Nagsimula po siya nu’ng nagkaroon ako ng international exposure sa X Factor UK. Katulad na lamang po nu’ng napanood po ako ng isang nanay ng bride sa Japan,” she said. 

She went on: “Tapos pinahanap niya po ako sa Attorney niya. ‘Hanapin mo ’tong trans na ‘to. Gusto ko siyang kumanta sa kasal ng anak ko sa Japan’ tapos tinawagan po kami ni manager tapos mineet po namin sa Makati tapos pumirma kami ng kontrata.” 

She also recalled the time when she would sing a total of 25 songs at events and get only as little 1,500 pesos. 

“Tapos hindi ako makapaniwala na ‘Ah ganu’n na pala presyo ng boses ko’ kasi dati 25 songs, 1,500 lang. Ganun. Tapos ngayon hindi ako makapaniwala na ganu’n na,” she said. 

“Ayun nakapunta ako ng Japan. Nakakanta ako sa kasal. Hanggang sa naging domino effect po siya eh. Parang nagkaroon ng Cambodia, Malaysia. Du’n po nakatulong ako ng bongga sa family. So bilang breadwinner po. Ayun po,” she added.
