MusikaCentral has always supported homegrown talents such as Zendee, who was featured here even before she made it big on national TV after being discovered as random girl who jumps into karaoke shops in malls to belt out a showstopper or two.

Kinabuhi (A Tribute to Paraguay) by Paolo Araneta

This time, we shine the light on Hymnmagsikan Wrecords' Paolo Araneta who also goes by the name of Kumplikado, a local rap artist, who wrote a song as tribute to local sensation Victor Madrazo, a.ka. Paraguay.

Paraguay gained popularity from being ever present in large gatherings, catching the people's attention with the way he dresses and the manner he acts. He is usually seen walking along the streets of General Santos City and, in a joke, he explains why, "My name is Paraguay, product of national highway kay wa'y pamasahe," which means, he's always seen walking because he has no money for his fare.

Paraguay's fame even escalated as videos of him singing his signature songs and throwing his antics were uploaded on the net and gained thousands of views from netizens. When his name was used to complete the internet sensation statement, "Taga-GenSan Ka Kung Kaila Ka ni Paraguay" (You Know You're From GenSan When You Know Paraguay) he became even more famous and was even commissioned to promote the Tuna Festival in 2011, which earned mixed reviews and controversies.

By the middle of the year 2012, news broke that Paraguay was suffering from a disease and was falsely reported to have died. But in October last year, his death was confirmed. A Facebook group has been dedicated to him.

 Here's a teaser I made for the upcoming music video produced by MusikaCentral:

 The Tribute to Paraguay music video will be released soon. Watch out for it.
