SB19: Performing Rights on ‘GENTO’

Filipino boy band SB19 released ‘GENTO‘ on
May 19, 2023. In their debut, the multi-awarded group achieved Billboard
success and became a hot top trending topic on YouTube.

On June 10, there were some humorous remarks from the It’s Showtime hosts
regarding the refusal to use the song ‘GENTO’ when a netizen requested to play
it in the ‘Isip Bata’ segment of the show due to album copyright issues. 

However, fans and some artists speculated comments regarding this issue.
They said that “Respect and Support Local Artists”.  

Additionally, Sam Concepcion tweeted, “Pay artists
their royalties.”
 

The It’s Showtime hosts are not against the performing rights of ‘GENTO’ or
any local artist. They simply choose their right to decline or use the song for
their show. 

SB19 also has the right to be paid, not only as a local artist but also for
their talent, creativity, and hard work. Supporting their work includes
attending performances, purchasing their art or music, promoting their
projects, and giving them appropriate credit and recognition.
