For his acceptance speech he said, “Para sa isang composer na di marunong tumugtog ng kahit anung instrumento ako ay lubos na nagpapasalamat sa mga tumulong gumawa ng album na to.” Gloc thanked PARI, the Awit Awards and all the artists he collaborated with in the album, “Gusto ko rin magpasalamat sa Universal records. Kung wala yung very supportive na label di ko magagawa itong lahat. Sa lahat ng taong sumusuporta samin masyado akong nanliliit sa pasasalamat.”

The song MAGDA is about a man finding out that his first love has become so desperate that she has turned to prostitution. Gloc 9 insists that he looks at it not from the point of view of the man in the song but more as a father, “Sakin naguumpisa lahat sa pagiging tama ng isang kanta kung ito’y sisimulan mo ng sincerity. Lagi kong sinasabi ay hindi dahil may kilala akong prostitute. Kung hindi dahil ako ay isang tatay ng isang batang babae. At hindi ko alam kung gaano kasakit sa isang ama na ang trabahao ng kanyang mahal na anak na babae ay ganoon nga. Feeling ko yon talaga ang tumatawid sa tao regardless kung ito ay na kikinig sa radio o ini screen para sa isang category sa isang award. Tatawid at tatawid ang message ng song. Lagi kung sinasabi ko na ito ay biyaya din. Ang kanta minsan pag na tatapos na record ko na at na rining ko ulit minsan di rin ako makapaniwala ako nagsulat noon e. I treat them as blessings na rin.”

Rico Blanco was thanked and credited for all his efforts & hard work on the single MAGDA by Gloc 9 which won Song of the Year. The 27th Awit Awards was held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resort’s World Manila last December 12, 2014. Photo by Jude Bautista

The title and message of the song is reminiscent of an earlier iconic hit from the 70s by Freddie Aguilar entitled MAGDALENA. Although musically they are literally worlds apart one being a fast paced, hip hop rock song while Aguilar’s is more of a folk song.
