Fil-Am hip-hop artist Allan Pineda Lindo or most widely known as apl.de.ap will perform at the opening and closing ceremony of the 2019 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.
The ceremonies will be held on November 30 and December 11 at the New Clark City in Pampanga.
Lindo said he is excited to perform onstage and be part of the SEA Games.
“[I want to perform] simply because I’m from Angeles City, Pampanga and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I wanted to be part of this historical moment. It only happens every 20 years. I’m really proud of my country and I just really wanted to share my talent and what I can provide for this event,” Lindo said.
He also added that his group, the Black Eyed Peas, will also perform alongside him.
The signing was held at the House of Representatives on August 20. Meanwhile, House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano hopes more Filipinos will be inspired by the musician.—AAC
After winning the bantamweight championship of the World Boxing Super Series, Naoya Inoue lets Nonito Donaire borrow Muhammad Ali trophy in order to fulfill a promise to his sons.
In his Facebook post, Donaire said he promised his sons that he would take home the trophy if he wins his fight against Inoue for the bantamweight championship on Thursday (November 7) at Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
But Inoue won by unanimous decision and is set to take home the championship.
“I humbly asked Inoue to borrow it for a night, not for me but for my word. It’ll be a life lesson my boys will soon learn,” Donaire said in his post.
“It’ll pain them to see my face. They’ll kiss my wounds. They’ll see a trophy we don’t get to take home and understand what it means to want to train harder,” he added.—AAC
