Recently, The Pop Stage grand winner CJ Villavicencio was heavily criticized for allegedly plagiarising the musical arrangements and concepts of Ang Huling El Bimbo: The Musical.

Ely Buendia himself was among those who reacted on the issue and earlier, he made an appeal over the controversy.

Here’s the full statement of Ely Buendia:

“I am appealing to the people, companies and corporations involved in the AHEB plagiarism issue. You alone have the power to make this right. You have the power to teach a young man and all the young people out there about to join the world, our children, a most valuable lesson that can have no other effect except make them good and become better. You have the power to stand up for and give back to the art which has been a source of life for all of us. You have the power to set an example and for once do the right thing, and become a beacon of hope in these dark times ruled by greed, hate and lies. Yes there are even more pressing matters out there, but in the end this will not just be about a song, a contract, a million pesos, or credit. Your actions will set a precedent and have repercussions in the years to come. On which side of history do you want to be on? Search your hearts for the truth and it will set you free.”
