Philippines – Friday morning netizens went frenzy after one of local Facebook page Senyora post a screenshot about an Arab Israeli video blogger, Nuseir Yassin or most known for as Nas Daily because of having created 1,000 daily one-minute long videos on Facebook.
It all started with Apo Whang-Od’s apprentice, Gracia Palicas post on her Facebook page, which is now deleted. In her post, Gracia called the platform’s “Whang-Od Academy” a “scam” and said that her grandmother did not sign any contract with Nas Daily.
“Some people are taking advantage of our culture. PLEASE HELP US STOP this disrespect to the legacy of Apo Whang Od and the Butbot Tribe,” she wrote on Wednesday.
As the post had already been deleted, some Twitter users were able to take a screenshot and post it on the Twitter app.
As this issue rises, another kababayan speaks out about her experience with Nas and shows support to Gracias.
In her lengthy post, Louise De Guzman Mabulo said that Nas Daily came to cover The Cacao Project but to her surprise, he’s not the person she imagines “I watched him imitate and mock the local accent and language, vocalizing Tagalog-sounding syllabic phrases saying it sounded s****d”
“The fact that he refused to take down the course until Gracia took her post down is a clear sign of systematic silencing and the hope that they want to continue their money-making from our culture…Filipinos should stand together on this— We are not content to be exploited. We are not the culture to be capitalized on. We are not people to be romanticized. Or poverty to set the scene for ‘Benevolent Saviors’. We are more than what the world thinks of us.”
