Panlasang Pinoy Withdrew From Partnering W/ Nas Daily
PANLASANG PINOY – Filipino netizens praise food vlogger Vanjo Merano or better known as Panlasang Pinoy for dismissing his collaboration with Nas Daily
Last June, Palestinian-Israeli vlogger Nuseir Yassin or better known as Nas Daily announced on his Facebook page that his team will launch 12 new academies in the Philippines. He said 12 personalities will take part in his project.
Among the Pinoy celebs who joined in Yassin’s “Nas Academy” were Moira Dela Torre, Catriona Gray, and Erwan Heussaff. Other personalities who were featured were Dubai-based couturier Michael Cinco, GMA-7 journalist Jessica Sojo, and Kalinga tattoo legend Apo Whang-Od.
Last week, Apo Whang-Od’s grandniece called out the vlogger for being a “scam.” She said the 104-year-old tattoo artist did not sign any contract to do the course. In response, Yassin uploaded a video of the mambabatok affixing her thumbprint to a document.
Nas Daily was accused of earning money by exploiting indigenous people such as Whang-Od. The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) said they are set to review Whang-Od’s alleged contract with Yassin.
Now, Pinoy netizens want Nas Daily to be declared persona non-grata in the Philippines. His team has yet to respond to the petition.
Recently, American-based Filipino vlogger Vanjo Merano or better known as Panlasang Pinoy decided to dismiss his collaboration with Nas Daily in support of Apo Whang-Od.
In a Facebook post, the food vlogger said he will not continue his online course that was supposed to be aired at ‘Nas Academy.’ He said Yassin abused the kindness of the Pinoys towards him after he allegedly tried to make money from the culture of Kalinga.
“PP Academy was in the works under the Nas Academy platform, but I decided not to pursue in support to Apo and the exploited Pinoy hospitality!!! #icandoitonmyownanyway,” he wrote.
Netizens praise Vanjo Merano for dismissing his collaboration with Nas Daily. Here are some of their comments from the post:
@Ghet E Salvador: “Wow, I salute you chef! You’re good at your own, ✓you don’t need anyone anyway”
@Miles Sangoyo: “Indeed! Sir you have so much followers you don’t need Nas.”
@Kay Timones: “good on you. you have been teaching us how to cook even before Nas Daily.”
