Controversial Filipino rapper and songwriter Daryl Ruiz, popularly known as Skusta Clee, clarified that he was not disrespected by audience members while performing at the recently concluded Hiraya Music Festival in Camarines Sur, Bicol.

Hindi ako nabastos! Saya kaya namin! Saka di uubra sakin bastusin ako kasi may lilipad na mic sa mukha mo pag nagkataon (I was not treated badly! We were actually having fun! Besides, such cruel treatment will not work on me because a microphone will hit your face in case that happens),” wrote the rapper on his Facebook account.

This was after a post by Facebook page “Rapper sa Pinas” went viral on Monday (Sept 26), defending the artist following supposed rude behavior from event-goers at the said music fest.

Binayaran yan para mag-perform hindi para bastusin nyo. Kung di mo gusto edi wag ka manuod. Respetuhin natin ang mga artist. Talento yung binayaran dyan hindi yung kung ano man. Wala namang pilitan kung ayaw manuod eh (He was paid to perform, not to be disrespected by fans. If you don’t like his music, then don’t watch. Let’s respect artists. We are paying for their talent, not for anything else. No one is forcing you to watch),” said the Facebook page.

Tsaka saka ka na manghusga kung hindi ka pa nakakagawa ng pagkakamali at perpekto ka. Dun lang tayo sa katotohanan (Judge [the artist] if you haven’t done anything wrong, or if you’re perfect. Let’s stick to the truth),” the page added.

This is not the first time that Clee supposedly received negative reactions from spectators at a music festival. It was alleged that the artist also encountered a similar case at the Aurora Music Festival in Clark, Pampanga last June.

Clee became controversial for many problematic reasons, including a cheating incident on his partner, online personality and vlogger Zeinab Harake, leading to their separation announced by the latter in May this year.
