After the livestream, Yael expressed how honored he is to be part of the MYX Magna tribute performance and fondly shared some personal happy memories with the "Man From Manila."

He shared a rare photo of his younger self, comfortably seated on Kiko's lap, taken way back in 1992: "Congratulations @myxph sa online #myxawards2020 an honor to be part of the FrancisM Magna tribute. This picture was taken back in 92, flight from San Francisco to Manila."

Yael also wrote that Francis M was the one who directed Sponge Cola's first-ever music video "KLSP" and if you know him, he's always proud to share this awesome piece of trivia every time he has a chance, 'cause who wouldn't be?

"11 years after this, he directed our first ever music video KLSP. We then did a bunch of gigs together, played basketball together, awesome guy, medyo intense, bawal maglakad on defense. ❤️  He may be gone but we still have his songs to guide us," he further shared.
