Elmo Magalona says his father Francis Magalona made sure to spend time with him growing up.
Just like his dad, master rapper Francis Magalona, Elmo Magalona always wants to be creative. This year he is focusing on his music, starting with shooting a music video last month with US singer Mimi. But just like his dad, Elmo said he always tries to make time for his family. The 25-year-old singer remembersed that his favorite moments with his dad was when he was spending quality time with them at home. “Siguro it’s the little things like kapag nasa house lang kami and then when may free days yung dad ko he would play video games with us and I think dun talaga nag-open up yung love ko for video games. He would play a lot of Tiger Woods, it’s about golf. He’s into golf. I was like ten years old then. It’s a memory that will always last na for me,” he told PUSH.
Elmo said that even if he had a lot of siblings, his dad made sure he felt significant no matter how hectic his schedule was as the country’s most popular rapper during his time. “We didn’t really feel it that way. Parang it’s just more of we knew our dad had to work, ganyan. Pero that’s how humble he was, na he didn’t make it seem to us how much of an icon he was, he’s always been just a dad to us. When we would play video games, sometimes he would sleep, nakakatulog siya when he’s playing the games because he’s super busy every single day but he would really make time to bond with me,” he recalled.
