Former lead vocalist of IV of Spades Unique Salonga finally speaks up after his departure from the band.

Salonga released the statement on his official Twitter account just three days after the announcement of his bandmates — Badjao de Castro, Blaster Silonga, and Zild Benitez — on formally leaving the band.

Salonga gave a cryptic message in a bittersweet tone, acknowledging that fans were disappointed, especially since it was the start of the rise of their band when he decided to leave. Many wanted to know why. “Manigas kayo,” he wrote. “…sa tuwa.”

“Kasi malalaman niyo rin naman ‘yan kung kating-kati ka talaga sa katotohanan at puwede mo rin naman kasing matuklasan sa sarili mong paghahanap. Exercise na rin sa pag-iisip.”

“Sa mga naghihintay lang diyan at umaasa sa mga lantang balita na nanggagaling sa mga lantang utak, uulitin ko: Manigas kayo,” he added.

The formed lead vocalist was thankful for the love and support from all their fans, especially the band’s parents’ support.

“Thank you sa tatlo na itinuring kong kaibigan,” he said, pertaining to his bandmates.

He added, “Thank you sa mga magulang ng bawat isa na umalalay sa aming apat. Ang laking tulong niyo. Siguro nga Malaki talaga, kaya sobrang thank you po talaga kung ano man ‘yon.”

“Sa nararanasan ko ngayon ay naisip ko bigla na mahirap pala talagang talikuran ang mga bagay na matagal mo nang pinaghirapan. Lalong-lalo na kung isa ’to sa mga bumubuhay at bumubuo sa ’yo.”

”Uy! Hindi pera ang tinutukoy ko rito ah,” he quips.

We’re sad to see Unique go, but we have to respect his decision. Hopefully, in time, everything will work out dahil kayo na ang tahanan at mundo ng Spotify playlist namin, IV of Spades.
