After revealing in a previous interview with MYX that he would be singing Ex Battalion’s hit “Hayaan Mo Sila” in his upcoming 21-piece big band concert, Richard Poon shared yet another exciting news for the younger generation of show-goers as he will put a jazz twist on Shanti Dope’s “Nadarang” in his one-night-only show.

While many of his fans may wonder why he included the 17-year-old rapper’s work in the lineup of novelty songs that he will be singing for his fans, the big band crooner explained that Shanti Dope's "Nadarang" is just too good to get snubbed. Plus, he sure knows Shanti Dope is an artist who could go more places in the future.

"How can this guy earn like so much followers, likes, views and respect from the community? And I think it's because he's not just a young kid that got lucky. He's really skilled," Richard said. 

At one point, Richard also praised one of Shanti Dope's performances that he saw online, saying: "Ang galing nung bata. Ang galing niya sobra."
