MTV Exit: The Philippine Tour- Cebu Leg

We are lucky to have the freedom of choosing who our friends are, where to work or whom to love. But some of us are not that fortunate. Hundreds of thousands of people in the world have been ripped off of these basic rights; quelched, smothered and suppressed to do various forms of labor and prostitution, modern day slaves and victims of Human Trafficking.




October 24, 2009, a collaboration of influential musicians have gathered to spread the awareness against human trafficking through songs for the "MTV Exit" campaign. Cebu Leg of MTV Exit Philippine tour was held at SM City Cebu Covered Parking Area, and is one of the events lined up by MTV to increase awareness on human traficking and put a stop in the increasing number of human traffickers in the world.


MTV Exit: The Philippine Tour - Cebu Leg was hosted by MTV VJ Sib. Performances by Shiela and the Insects, Urban Dub and Sandwich.





The free benefit concert was attended by mostly Generation Y peeps. Headbanging and literally shouting our lungs out was definitely gut-busting!


I myself had enjoyed the gig so much and I bet fellow bloggers Noelle and Jose did enjoy too! Fellow CBSers were also there to join in the fun!
