SHOCKING! Mocha Girls, Sharon, Booba had shows in Bilibid, says witness
“During the tenure of then-secretary de Lima, ang maximum security compound ay tinaguriang ‘Little Las Vegas’ and at the same time, 'Wild (Wild) West."
This was how witness Rodolfo Magleo described the national penitentiary's maximum security compound during the stint of Senator Leila de Lima as justice secretary.
“It was called ‘Little Las Vegas’ dahil maraming concerts na nangyayari and [these were] not ordinary concerts. Concert ito ng mga celebrities, mga famous celebrities katulad nila Freddie Aguilar, Sharon Cuneta. The Mocha Girls performed, [as well as] Ethel Booba. I cannot recall the name of the dancers anymore, and several comedienne, celebrities,” he said. Responding to Magleo's claim, Gang Badoy of Rock Ed Philippines, admitted that Cuneta indeed performed for the Bilibid inmates for free.
"We were the ones who arranged for @sharon_cuneta12 to perform inside prison as outreach. Not the MochaGirls tho nor Freddie," Badoy said on Twitter.
"It was an outreach concert, Sharon gracefully sang for the inmates. It had nothing to do w/ Jaybee Sebastian," Badoy added, referring to one of Bilibid's high-profile inmates.
Badoy said Rock Ed had been arranging concerts at the Bilibid since 2007 and these were different from the ones organized by another high-profile inmate, Herbert Colangco.
"We arrange them. Rock Ed did [it] for 9 yrs. Lots of bands have played inside [with] us," she said.
