A mother’s love is something that stems not for the simple fact that a woman gave birth to a child, but with the steady and unrelenting commitment to support your children through the toughest of times.
For L.A Based Fil-Am Rapper Mark Villamac Ho Bagyo the dedication, guidance and support of their mother meant everything.
After surviving Iraq while serving as a U.S Marine Corps and returning home with post-traumatic stress disorder, BagYo would later on learn that he was fighting two types of cancers- the steadfast care and support of his mother Ludivina Gilkison made a huge impact on his recovery.
In the song inspired by Blue Bayou by Linda Ronstadt, Bagyo went on to express their admiration and love for their mother Ludy Villamac Gilkison. The song feat. Bryant Woodert, it spoke of their real life story growing up.
