Kapamilya artist Maki captures the uncertainties and confusions of lost love in his debut EP “Tanong” available on various streaming platforms beginning Friday (Sept. 22).
“Last year, I went through so much pain mentally and emotionally. I had no one to talk to about my questions back then except for my best friends, but I didn’t wanna bother them so I just started writing my questions on a paper. Sinulat ko lahat ng tanong ko sa mga taong wala na sa buhay ko, missed opportunities, as well as yung mga tanong ko sa sarili ko,” Maki said.
The R&B artist also added that the songs started out as journal entries until it ended up being a collection of songs that reflect his personal journey.
“No’ng una akala ko magiging journaling journey ko lang siya at araw-araw akong iiyak, but it turned out to be the best project I did so far sa career ko. I never thought that my greatest pain could turn into something I can look at now as a possession that I’ll treasure forever,” he shared.
The up-and-coming singer has captured the hearts of listeners through his relatable and catchy songs that show his child-like view on life. Maki has released several singles including “Halaga,” “Para Sa Buwan,” and his hit R&B rendition of “Gusto Ka Nang Bumitaw.” He continues to forge his path as one of the fresh faces of OPM with the success of his single “Saan?” which is currently charting on Spotify Philippines’ Daily Top Songs and has accumulated almost 15 million streams, while the track “Bakit?” is also making waves as it debuted on the top 50 of Spotify Philippines’ Viral Chart accumulating 1.5 million streams to date.
