- Moira dela Torre was bashed for performing at Marcos Fest in Ilocos Norte
- The singer denied knowing that the event involved a tribute to the Marcos clan
- However, some netizens accused her of lying about not knowing about it
Moira dela Torre was criticized on social media for performing at an event called “Marcos Fest” in Ilocos Norte.
KAMI learned that the singer denied knowing that the event was called “Marcos Fest.”
"This Marcos Fest as supposed to be called I-Millennial Fest. I AM NOT A MARCOS APOLOGETIC (sic). Never will I be…
"From the earlier reminders till before we got there, [the organizers] addressed it as the Ilocano Millennial Night. Not once was [Marcos'] name brought up. So let me be clear about this: I performed for the people of Ilocos and NOT for Marcos,"
However, several netizens – including the Aian Raquel, head of the Provincial Tourism Office at Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte who invited her to the event – accused Moira of lying about her lack of knowledge about the “Marcos Fest.”
“Nobody tricked you Moira Dela Torre. You knew that the event was called ‘Marcos Fest,’ at the very least posters were up even before you flew to Laoag. Don’t make it seem like we lied to get you to perform. Ask your agent and your manager about it and please, don’t blame the ‘producers.’
“Thank you for bringing your music to Ilocos and we were really appreciative of you even if you were late for 20 minutes and with a bad, sickly voice. You were supposed to perform @ 10pm. We all had fun, Moira.
“But now that you are complaining about performing at an event where you’re requirements and demands were given, including your fee, bakit parang nambabastos ka,” Aian Raquel posted.
Here are the other posts of netizens who slammed the singer:
In a previous report by KAMI, the singer revealed the story of her relationship with her father.
Moira is best known for her song “Malaya.” Her other singles include “Home,” “Sundo,” “Torete” and “Titibo-tibo.”
“Titibo-tibo” was the grand winner in the Himig Handog 2017.
