“Kung nakinig ako sa kanila matagal na ako tumigil sa musika,” Rico said.
Rico then indicated he would never listen to such people because it’s not them who brought him to where he is today but his fans.
“Ngayon pa ba ako makikinig sa kanila eh ang nagdala naman sa akin dito ay hindi sila kundi KAYO ❤️,” the former frontman for “Rivermaya” said.
He also revealed that he just played “to a sea of people in Davao” who were all dancing and singing along with him.
Rico also said that he recently “received the lifetime industry honor” in front of his peers and a new breed of artists, indicating that because of these, there’s no reason for him to listen to the people whom he said have been bullying him.
“I just played to a sea of people in Davao all happily dancing and singing along, some in tears. I just received the lifetime industry honor in front of my peers and a new generation of artists,” the singer-songwriter said.
“My heart is full and i will keep doing my music my way. If you want to do things your way then make your own and i will respect you to the highest degree. Peace and love always ,” Rico concluded.
