Manila, Philippines – Nag-iba na ang FB account name ng Callalily’s dahil pinapitan na ito ng LILY Music. Pinalitan na rin ang profile and cover photos to white backgrounds.

Ayon sa mga reports ay opisyal nang nilisan ni Kean Cipriano ang banda kung saan siya ay naging lead vocalist for 17 years.

Sinabi ng LILY Music sa GMA News Online na maglalabas sila ng official statement real soon. “We just have to consult with our lawyers,” they said.

Sa isang exclusive interview ng GMA News Online, sinabi ng asawa ni Kean na si Chynna Ortaleza na hindi naman daw iniwan ng actor-singet ang banda “but rather disengaged from them.”

“He did decide to leave the set-up of being in a band. However, Callalily kasi was always under his intellectual property. The brand stays with him.

“If I look kasi into how it’s being phrased at the moment, syempre it’s easy to say na, ‘oh, he left Callalily.’ But he just left the format of the band. He did disengage with his former bandmates but the name Callalily stays with Kean Cipriano,” pag-explain pa ni Chynna.

Binanggit din ni Chynna na gusto sana ni Kean ibigay ang license ng pangalan ng band to his former bandmates, “but I don’t think they understood what that meant. And it’s being loosely thrown in social media na he stole [the name].

“Sabi ko nga, we know the truth naman and if they cannot understand what happened, I guess that’s just how the story is. And they have more years ahead of them to learn about the rights and the business of music.”

Sabi pa ni Chynna, they tried to “fix things properly” kasama ang mga former bandmates ni Kean.

“Sino ba naman ‘yung gustong to leave things in the air na hindi siya plantsado?

“We really wanted to fix things legally with them, like a proper label release was something that I was thinking of doing with them,” sabi pa niya.

Sinabi rin ni Chynna na iniisip ni Kean na mag-disengage sa band and go solo but needed time to process until it felt like the right time.

“It’s just very unfortunate that his bandmates didn’t want to talk to us anymore despite the continued efforts of trying to get in touch with them because we want to fix things,” sabi pa niya.

When asked whether Kean and his former bandmates are on good terms, sabi ni Chynna, “no, they’re not. Kasi parang Kean was really trying his best to reach out but he just kept on getting no replies eh. They didn’t want to talk to him.

“But I guess that’s just how their response is and we really can’t do anything about it. Kean naman is very open-minded and you can’t force a certain kind of reaction sa mga taong hindi ready or hindi nakikita yung paths [for growth].”

Sa FB page ng LILY Music ay sinabi ng fans na sobra na nilanv nami-miss ang band.

Awwwww. Joey Sarmiento
