Nope, De Lima NEVER held a concert in Bilibid

A video clip of Senator Leila M. de Lima singing George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” circulated online as early as 2016, with obviously paid trolls repeatedly claiming that it was allegedly her concert staged at the New Bilibid Prison.

Last September, Facebook page Istong Macayana Palisoc uploaded the video anew with the misleading headline that read: Throwback: Colango Concert inside the Bilibid prison DOJ Secretary De Lima is special guest” The caption was referring to NBP inmate Herbet Colanggo.

Contrary to the claim, the video was actually recorded during a thanksgiving event in 2016 dedicated to thank De Lima’s election campaign volunteers.

Below is the screenshot of the video:
