Not only the fans of Marlon “Loonie” Peroramas are disappointed by what happened to the famous Filipino rapper but also the authorities who caught him selling high-grade kush.
During an interview on Thursday, Makati police chief Col. Rogelio Simon couldn’t hide his disappointment after they caught Peroramas, saying that he knows the rapper and listened to his songs.
“Nakakasama ng loob dahil personally kilala ko yung tao, maraming nag i-idol sa kanya, madali siyang makahikayat ng mga nag i-idolize sa kanya dahil sa sikat siya,” Simon said.
“At talagang napanood ko yung mga kanta niya at masasabi kong magaganda ang mga [mensahe] yun nga lang nagamit lang sa maling [paraan], hindi natin alam na may mga activities pala siyang ganito,” he added.
Simon said that Loonie is doing his illegal activities during his gigs.
Aside from the popular rapper, Albert Alvarez, Ivan Agustin, David Rizon and Idyll Liza Peroramas, Loonie’s sister were also caught during the operation.
The police recovered a cellphone and 15 sachets of high-grade kush.
According to Simon, more celebrities like Loonie is still under surveillance and they’re still waiting for the right time to conduct an operation against them.
Meanwhile, the camp of Loonie denied the accusations against them, saying that they do not own the sachets presented by the authorities and they’re supposed to visit an ailing fan in Makati City.
“Hindi po totoo lahat yan, gusto ko pong makipag usap sa abogado namin dahil nabigla po kami, pupuntahan dapat namin ay yung batang may cancer, yun ang pag kakaalam ko,” Loonie said.
Makati PNP is not yet releasing the conversations they recovered from the alleged phone of Loonie.
Last year, rap battle artist Zaito was also caught by the authorities for the same reason.
