MANILA, Philippines – One of the members of The Masculados, Orlando Sol is making a buzz via the song titled ‘Ingatan Mo and Salitang Mahal Kita’ which is the theme song of the currently running drama series on GMA-7 Kapuso network—‘My Faithful Husband’ which premiered on August 10 with Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo as lead stars.
The song was chosen to be the series’ theme song due to its message that reflects the unconditional love of Trillo’s character as Emman, the husband of Mel portrayed by Mercado. Jerwin Nicomedez composed and arranged the love song for Sol.
According to Nicomedez, he wrote the song last year and is based from his personal experience: “Ginawa ko yun sa isang taong mahal na mahal ko. Binigay ko lahat para sa taong yun, in return nakukuha pa din niya akong balewalain at saktan to the point na nakalimutan ko na lahat pati family ko para sa pagmamahal ko sa kanya; kahit alam kong niloloko niya ko nagbubulag- bulagan ako.”
Despite the blindness of his love toward the person he loved, it came to a point that he woke up one day and realized that the one person he loved couldn’t love him back.
Jerwin added, “Sa sobrang sakit mas pinili ko na lang lumayo pero sa paglayo ko hindi ibig sabihin nun na di ko na siya mahal. Lumayo ako para malaman kong hahanapin niya ko at umaasa na gaya sa last line ng awitin: ‘At kung ako ay babalik sa ‘yo sana ay tanggapin mo akong muli’.”
Orlando is elated for his song to be part of the hit telenovela that tackles on the faithfulness of a husband, which is rarely given the spotlight since drama shows on the boobtube normally place female as the central character. Besides, apart from the series, he believes that the song is relevant nowadays and would remind humans to refrain from saying the words ‘mahal kita’ without love at all and by mere lip-service only. For him, love is a decision that one should truly commit whole-heartedly and must not be abused in any way possible. He was also asked if he is considering of leaving the longest-running, sing-and-dance, all-male group he is part of.
“Direk Maryo J. my manager is allowing me to explore on other things as well as expand my territory by trying out to sing solo, but it doesn’t mean I am leaving my group.
“Productions56 is a home of premium actors and is also where one of the country’s finest actors like Yul Servo is managed. Who doesn’t want to follow Kuya Yul’s footsteps?” Sol excitedly shares his latest venture.
In July this year, Orlando was also part of the Virgin Labfest stage play titled ‘Huling-Huli’ which was about a middle-aged widow torn between keeping her principles and becoming like the women in her village who have no other means of supporting themselves but offering sexual favors to fishermen in exchange for the chance to buy the fish they caught and resell in the market. He was paired with theater veteran and award-winning actress—Angeline Kanapi. He recently shared the limelight with the one and only Superstar–Nora Aunor in a TV guesting via another hit series on Kapuso Network—‘Pari ‘Koy’.
On the other hand, the song that Sol performed the theme song is the series that reunites Mercado and Trillo after the last project they did together back in 2010, which was the TV remake of the 1990 Viva film of the same title.
