“Does anyone know a good attorney I can hire to contact ABS-CBN? They have never paid me even ONE PESO of royalties contractually owed on the songs I released through their record label and publishing company Star Songs, and every time I have inquired over the past 7+ years they either blow me off or don’t respond at all to my request for a royalty statement. Songs I released through them have garnered millions of streams.”
