Issue! Oli Reyes reveals reason behind Levi Celerio national artist snob
Atty. Oli Reyes just exposed former President Cory Aquino for her small feud with musician, Levi Celerio. The abogado is unsure but discussed the workings behind the popular song, “Ako ay Pilipino.”
I don’t know if Ako Ay Pilipino (…May dugong maharlika…) was deliberately intended as a counter-anthem to Bayan Ko, but it sure felt that way, and was that the reason why Cory refused to name Levi Celerio a National Artist?
