Pinoy rapper Gloc-9 took to Facebook last night to share a timely conversation he had with one of his ‘fans’, who criticized him for selling products online.
Just like any other people who lost their jobs or got affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Gloc-9 is finding different ways to earn extra income during these troubling times. In his case, he sells food and clothing apparel online.
In his post, he revealed that a fan questioned his new venture and told him that online selling is not suited for him.
Hence, the rapper explained to his fan that there’s clearly nothing wrong with selling goods online, plus it is also a major thing happening right now since almost everyone resorted to launching their own online businesses.
“May nag tanong sakin ‘idol bakit ka nag bebenta ng kung ano ano? Hindi bagay sayo,’” he began his post. “Sabi ko sa kanya: ‘Tol wala namang masama siguro doon diba? At alam mo ba na kasama sa trabaho ko noon bago ako mag rap ay mag linis ng basurahan, kubeta at kanal?’”
Gloc-9 then reminded his fan that times are changing and we got to do what we need to do to provide for our family.
“Tandaan nyo mga Kababayan iba na ang panahon natin ngayon kailangan nating lumaban para mabuhay para sa mga Mahal natin. Wala kang dapat ikahiya kung ang trabaho mo ay marangal at wala kang tinatapakang kapwa mo. Kaya natin ito! APIR!!!”
Based on his Instagram feed, Gloc-9 is offering a wide range of home-cooked Filipino dishes in the online market such as dinuguan, menudo, bopis, fried chicken, and even biko; and he is also selling jerseys from his official merchandise “Makata.”
Way to go, Gloc-9!
