JK Labajo once again took to social media to clarify that it wasn’t his intention to stir up drama when he spoke up on the elimination of reggae singer Luke Bayton on singing competition ‘Idol Philippines’.

In a post he shared earlier on Instagram, the young musician called out the judges of the show for failing to see Luke’s potential after the said contestant from Tuguegarao City, who sang his own version of Alicia Keys’s ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ for his audition piece, was sent home.

“It’s a yes for me. I’m not even gonna argue with the other judges. It’s easy to fix flats and sharps and such imperfections but it’s not that easy to find soul. Kakagigil,” he said.

“Huge shame on the other ‘judges’ for not seeing this guy’s potential. What a shame. Such a shame. I’m ashamed,” he added.

This week, JK posted on his Instagram Stories to explain that his only intention for speaking up was to share his opinion regarding the said episode, as what is included in his rights as a viewer.

“Reggae has an off-beat type of measure in music and it’s not really made to be performed PERFECTLY but FREELY. Just saying,” he said.

“And for you people who get so turned on with issues, I’m not trying to make one. We all have our own opinions and I’m just sharing my own thoughts. Anyway, whatever, I moved on from this already like just now so sayonara carbonara.”

With that said, JK believes that celebrities like himself should have the freedom to speak their minds online and be able to use their platform to do just as they wish.

“Filipinos have this crazy mindset that celebrities or public figures shouldn’t or can’t share their own thoughts in life,” he said.

“For you and for nation, ‘di ako artista. Ako’y isang normal na tao lang. Don’t expect perfection in me, go find it somewhere else,” he added.
