Kean Cipriano Shares Details About His Decision To Leave Callalily
KEAN CIPRIANO – Vocalist Kean Cipriano recently admitted that he’s no longer part of the OPM band Callalily.
Pinoy pop-rock band Callalily was formed in 2005. The band entered the music scene with their songs “Take My Hand,” “Stars,” and “Magbalik.”
Vocalist Kean Cipriano is now embarking on a new journey in his career as Chairman and CEO of his record company. Together with his wife Chynna Ortaleza, he has been managing recording artists for four years under OC Records Philippines.
During his interview with PUSH, Kean Cipriano was asked if his bandmates in Callalilly were also part of OC Records.
“Before yeah, and when the band was still together,” he admitted.
“Yeah, Callalilly is done. Callalily is done. I’m moving on, I’ve move on, moving forward and I wish them all the best,” he continued.
Kean Cipriano was also asked how his bandmates react to his decision to leave Callalily. And as a former band vocalist for 17 years, he also believes that it’s time for him to do another thing in his life.
“I believed we’re not in a fairy tale world…”
“I mean we’re okay na parang… I think in a group, magkakasama kayo for 17 years, marami na rin nangyari and I don’t think medyo matagal na rin kaming hindi okay so, alam mo ‘yun parang ibang chapter naman for us,” he added.
Following his confirmation, Kean Cipriano also reacted to Callalilly’s reported search for a new vocalist. He said, “I hope they find it, kung sino man. I mean you know I wish them really all the best ‘di ba like I said, Callalilly is done and kung ano man ang gusto nilang dalhin… I mean,’yun naman talaga ang point nito ‘di ba na in ten years babalikan naming lahat and papasalamatan namin ang isa’t isa and that was a good call di ba? ‘Yung growth natin, iba na siya ngayon, I wish them well.”
As for possible reunion gigs with his former band mates: “Hindi na magbabalik ang dating Callalily,” said Kean.
For the former vocalist, he is now more focused on the new phase of his life today. He said, “So ako rin, nasa ibang phase na ako ng buhay ko and I have a lot of things to do now, I am focusing with OC records. May tiwala sa akin ang mga artists ko and I think that [I need to do] my job better and do better for this.”
And in the fourth year of his successful business, Kean now has only one aim. “The legacy I want to do is to be able to contribute a lot of music that I can contribute to the industry. So, I found my purpose here,” he said.
