Ely Eleandre Basiño Buendia is a highly acclaimed Filipino musician. He is best known for being the frontman, vocalist, and songwriter of the legendary OPM band, Eraserheads, which has since become an integral part of Filipino popular culture. He is also the co-founder of the independent record label, Offshore Music.

A couple of months ago, Ely was interviewed by celebrity couple, Saab Magalona and Jim Bacarro. During the interview, questions soon turned to the singer's former legendary band, Eraserheads. When Ely was talking about their song Minsan, the singer claimed that the lyrics are "cringe-worthy" because many thought that the song was about the friendship between bandmates. Ely claimed that this was in fact not true and revealed that they were never close nor were they friends.

The comment of Ely that he and his former bandmates at Eraserheads "were never close nor friends" resulted in a backlash online. Because of this, he wrote an open letter for everyone. In a message he penned, the singer opined that he does not understand why people are hating on him for telling the truth. He also said that people should remember that it is their music that should matter. While some have reacted negatively to the singer's revelation, many netizens also defended Ely from his bashers.
