In the music video for her single “Sakalam”, Gigi De Lana poured her heart out to actor Markus Paterson who plays her boyfriend in the song’s official music video. 

“Feeling ko habang kinakanta ko yung ‘Sakalam’ nasasaktan ko, linalagay ko yung sarili ko dun sa song kasi gusto ko kantahin yung kanta ng punong puno ng buhay, punong puno ng soul. Hindi lang basta kinanta ko lang. Kasi aaminin ko, as a singer, minsan may moments talaga ako na hindi fini-feel yung song. Eh bsta kantahin ko lang. Kasi minsan pagod na or minsan hindi ko iniisip yung meaning nung song. Hindi ko ina-analyze kung ano bang meaning nung kanta na ito. Pero this time nung ‘Sakalam’ na, sobra akong nakaka-relate kasi sa mga pinagdaanan ko din sa buhay,” she said.

While shooting the music video, Gigi revealed why it was extra challenging for her to do. “Ang daming nangyari nun and habang sinu-shoot namin yung music video mixed emotions ako. Kasi ang daming nangyari sa akin. Nung time na yun hindi ko mailabas yung right emotions sa ‘Sakalam’ lalo na sa pinakadulo ng shinoot namin.

“I would like to thank direk Chad and Markus sa pagsuporta dun sa ‘Sakalam’ and with the guide of my boys, with the guide of Gigi Vibes. Nalabas ko rin yung right emotions kasi inisip ko rin sila at that moment and I’m very, very thankful. Minsan talaga hindi ko nalalabas yung emotions ng tama. Parang inaano ko lang siya sa boses ko kasi kapag malungkot yung kanta yung parang maiiyak na ako. Pero once na pinut ko yung emotions ko, kung paano ko siya hinuhugot, sa experience ko sa lahat ng pinagdaanan ko at nararamdaman ko nung araw na yun kasi,” she shared.

When Gigi was asked to share a story of her personal heartbreak with the press, the 26-year-old singer couldn’t help but get emotional and admit that her most recent one happened within that same day. “Yung first heartbreak ko hindi na kasi siya nag-ma-matter for me. Yung mga heartbreaks na ganyan it doesn’t matter. What matters is what’s in front of you now. So kung a-answer ko yan hindi ko siya masasabgot ng maayos but yung heartbreak na nangyari sa akin recently lang if you want to know talaga, was kanina. Kasi recently masyado akong emotional, alam mo yung may tendency yung mga girls na uminit ang ulo, minsan hindi natin mapakalma yung sarili natin. Tapos pag lalambingin tayo lumalayo ka, alam mo yun? Masakit pala yun sa kanila. So sinabi niya sa akin kanina na nagbago siya, na parang kapag inulit ulit mo pala yung isang bagay, ma-a-apply niya yun sa sarili niya na parang paulit ulit na lang. Umiyak ako kanina. It’s really hard na ako nakapagpabago sa kanya na ayokong magbago. Yun yung heartbreak ko. Masakit kasi ikaw yung reason kung bakit siya nagbago,” she reveals.

For those going through the same painful experience, the “Sakalam” singer gave words of advice. “Ang message ko sa kanila, okay lang masaktan (laughs). Okay lang masaktan kasi it’s part of you growing up to learn something from your lives. Yang mga nararamdaman niyo pansamantala lang yan. Even though sakalam talaga siya, pansamantala lang yang nararamdaman niyo.

“Yung song na ito, hindi lang siya heartbreaking. Itong song na ‘to, kapag kinanta mo siya meron din siyang binibigay na positive vibes. So parang hinay ka lang sa nararamdaman mo, parang huwag mo masyado ibigay lahat kasi pag nasaktan ka, wala ng matitira sa ‘yo. Hinay lang kayo sa nararamdaman niyo kasi yung puso minsan OA (laughs) so talagang isip isip din. Gamitin din ang utak,” she said.
