In her acceptance speech, the talent manager dedicated the award to her eight children with the legendary rapper—Unna, Nicolo, Maxene, Frank, Saab, Elmo, Arkin, and Clara— and "most especially" to the Philippines. She reminded everyone to learn from Francis M's songs which include patriotic anthems "Mga Kababayan", "Man From Manila" and "3 Stars And A Sun" and socially conscious hits "Kaleidoscope World" and "Ito Ang Gusto Ko".

"Si Francis M ay nagsulat ng mga awitin na talagang dapat niyong pakinggan dahil maraming nilalaman yun na nagtuturo sa atin na ipaglaban ang ating mga karapatan, at itinuturo rin sa atin na sa atin ang ating bansa at wala nang iba," she said. "Kailangan nating lumaban especially ngayong time ng pandemya. Ipaglaban natin ang ating mga karapatan... Let's speak up and fight for our rights."

On a lighter note, Pia concluded her speech by congratulating Korean boy group BTS who won International Video of the Year for their record-breaking collab with American artist Halsey, "Boy With Luv".

Watch the fitting tribute to Francis M below:
