BINI Responds to Allegations of Witchcraft Surrounding Their Viral Hit Song “Salamin, Salamin”

BINI – P-pop girl group BINI responded to allegations of witchcraft surrounding their viral hit track “Salamin, Salamin.”

BINI responded to allegations made by a religious content creator who accused their hit song “Salamin, Salamin” of spreading witchcraft, stating that they don’t take it seriously. “Salamin, Salamin” serves as the lead track on their debut EP “Talaarawan,” which was launched on March 8, coinciding with International Women’s Day.

The EP also features songs like “Karera,” “Pantropiko,” “Ang Huling Cha Cha,” “Na Na Nandito Lang,” and “Diyan Ka Lang.”

In a Facebook post, Follow Jesus Ministry accused BINI of promoting “worldly music” and spreading witchcraft through “Salamin, Salamin,” urging followers to be discerning in their music choices. The post has garnered over 6,600 reactions and 2,300 shares on Facebook.

“Let’s choose our music wisely to nurture our souls and to bring us closer to God. Beware sa mga Christian, preachers, pastors, ministers na walang nakikitang mali sa pakikinig ng mga worldly music,” it wrote. “‘Salamin Salamin’ is a witchcraft song. Please wake up church.”

Despite the controversy, the P-pop girl group found the claim amusing during a recent press conference for an e-commerce platform.

“Actually, nakita ko po ‘yung post na ‘yun. Nakakatawa po,” Colet responded to a question about the issue, adding that they simply laugh off such stories and theories about them.

Maloi dismissed the claims as “fake news,” reaffirming that “Salamin, Salamin” is just a good song.

“Fake news po. Hindi po witchcraft ang ‘Salamin, Salamin.’ Maganda lang po ‘yung song (It’s just fake news. ‘Salamin, Salamin’ doesn’t promote witchcraft. The song is just nice),” she said.

The eight-member girl group gained popularity after their 2023 track “Pantropiko” went viral on social media.

BINI, comprised of Jhoanna, Aiah, Colet, Maloi, Gwen, Stacey, Mikha, and Sheena, debuted officially in June 2021. They are scheduled to hold their “BINIverse” concert from June 28 to 30 at the New Frontier Theater in Quezon City.
