‘Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos’ cover of Pura Luka Vega resurfaces

PURA LUKA VEGA – The controversial drag queen has gained widespread attention anew following a video of him doing an impression of Gary Valenciano’s hit single “Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos”.

Vega faced heavy criticism after a video of him performing a remix version of “Ama Namin,” the Filipino edition of the Lord’s Prayer, while dressed as Jesus Christ. This act sparked strong disapproval from the public, including senators, who deemed it offensive, disrespectful, and blasphemous.

In response to the backlash, Vega defended himself, stating that dressing up as Jesus Christ was a form of “art therapy.” He even drew comparisons to some Catholics dressing as Jesus Christ during Holy Week for penitential purposes. Despite the criticism, Vega expressed determination to continue impersonating Jesus Christ as a way to pay tribute to the Catholic faith from a uniquely queer perspective.
