Eraserheads Vocalist Ely Buendia Performed during Leni-Kiko Campaign in Iloilo
The election campaign period in the Philippines has officially started and the candidates for the May 2022 National Election are currently busy with the campaign events. They are visiting the different cities and provinces in the country to meet more Filipinos, lay down their platforms, and win the votes of the people.
Running as an independent candidate, Vice Pres. Leni Robredo recently visited the province of Iloilo. She was with her running-mate, Liberal Party’s vice-presidential bet Senator Kiko Pangilinan. The Ilonggos in Iloilo prepared a warm welcome for the Leni-Kiko tandem.
The campaign of the Leni-Kiko tandem in Iloilo was joined by several celebrities in different fields. One of them is the lead vocalist of Eraserheads, Ely Buendia.
Prior to the filing of the candidacy period, Ely Buendia seemingly jested that the Eraserheads will reunite if Vice Pres. Leni Robredo runs for the presidency. While it seemed like a jest, the lead vocalist of the band visited the Office of the Vice President and even gave her a limited edition vinyl gift.
Recently, Ely Buendia also joined the Leni-Kiko campaign rally in Iloilo City. The lead vocalist of Eraserheads performed several songs at the campaign event including their band’s popular music Alapaap. Here’s a video of his performance posted on Daily Guardian‘s social media page:
The campaign venue was filled with the supporters of the Leni-Kiko tandem which seemed like an ocean of pink as they came with the campaign color of the tandem. During the 2016 vice presidential election, Robredo got a lot of votes from the Ilonggos.
The Vice President is hopeful that more Ilonggos will support her presidential bid as she stressed that they supported and trusted her then when she has yet to prove anything. Now, she is coming back to the province with receipts of the programs during her term as vice president of the country.
