Here is the full tweet of the OPM icon.
"RE: Yung profile pic mong red. Sa mga art galleries, kung ang artwork ay may red sticker ibig sabihin “sold." At sa malls, supermarkets, shops, ang ibig sabihin ng red dot ay “on sale”, o “bargain price", sa madaling salita, sold cheap o murang nabili. Dignidad."
Westdon Martin Abay, better known as Dong Abay, is a Pinoy rock musician and poet who rose to fame for churning out hit songs like Banal na Aso, Santong Kabayo and ESEM. Born on April 5, 1971, he found and established bands like Yano, Pan, and Dongabay. He is also the founder of Dong Abay Music Organization or D.A.M.O.
During the campaign season, he also slammed the alleged use of his song “Kumusta Na” as campaign jingle of the BBM-Sara tandem. He said that even if he is “anti-Aquino,” he did not write the song for “Marcos loyalists.” Dong stressed that he is not giving his permission to use the said song as political tandem’s jingle. In what may be taken as his firm stand on his point, he ended his statement with an expletive.
In 2017, Dong released a new album as a solo artist under D.A.M.O. called Humanidad, or in English, Humanity. The album contained 14 songs that talk about life. Most of the songs have sardonic wit and passion that attempt to re-ignite fervor from among the younger generation.
