Newsletter: Papa Obet sings of love and loss in “Naghihintay”


Barangay LS 97.1 radio DJ and singer Papa Obet returns with a touching new single under GMA Music, “Naghihintay,” a song that captures the emotions of longing, love, and loss. The song was set to be released last June 28.

“Naghihintay” is a pop ballad about someone who is still waiting for their love to return, even though they may be gone forever. The song’s lyrics are relatable to anyone who has ever experienced heartbreak or loss.

“I wrote this song based on the experiences that many people encounter today,” Papa Obet explains. “There are those who hope, those who wait, those who leave, and those who are left behind. And sometimes, those who leave may never come back, but we still hold on to hope that they will.”

The song’s message of acceptance and moving on is one that Papa Obet hopes will resonate with listeners. “The first step is acceptance,” he says. “You need to accept that the person you’re waiting for is gone. Don’t regret it, don’t blame yourself. At least you tried waiting. You fought for them, and even though they didn’t come back, you didn’t lose.”

“Naghihintay” is Papa Obet’s first non-Christmas single since 2018, and he is excited to share it with his fans. “I’m glad I finally get to release this song,” he says. I’ve been holding on to it for a while now, and I think it’s time to let it go out into the world.”

The song is accompanied by a performance video that will be released shortly after the song’s debut.

In addition to “Naghihintay,” Papa Obet is also working on a new Christmas song and has several projects lined up for his music career. He is passionate about music and shows no signs of slowing down.

“Music has never left my life,” he says. “I’ve been on the radio for years, and I’m always listening to music. I never let a week go by without singing. I do it almost every day to keep the passion alive.”

“Naghihintay” is a must-listen for anyone who has ever experienced heartbreak or loss. This song was released under GMA Music on digital platforms worldwide this past June 28.
