Maris Racal will star in an MMK episode this coming Saturday, June 16.
This 20 yr old ex-Pinoy Big Brother housemate will play the role of Tin , or Libertine Amistoso in real life. Tin is the writer behind Moira dela Torre’s hit song “Titibo-tibo”. The song won last 2017 in the songwriting competition hosted by ABS-CBN Music called 2017 Himig Handog.
As we all know , “Titibo-tibo” is a story about a girl who grew up boyish . However, things changed when she got attracted to a guy.
The song received criticisms when it was released as some listeners perceived the song as “trivializing lesbians and the experience of gender expression”.
Composer of the song Libertine clarified the issue saying ‘Yung song, hindi siya about sa tibo or lesbian. It’s about a boyish girl. Different siya sa lesbian talaga…Kaya may part dun sa song na ‘pero ‘di mo naman inasam na ako ay magbagong tuluyan’ so ‘yung pinaka-disclaimer nun na ikaw, kung ganun ‘yung feeling mo, hindi mo kailangang humanap ng guy para makapagpabago sa ‘yo nang tuluyan”
A short-haired Maris Racal will be seen in this MMK episode.
There will actually be two guys that will become Tin’s love interests -Neil Coleta and Jameson Blake. Singer Mitoy Yonting will also be part Maris’ family.
