Repost: Kean Cipriano Disengages from 'Callalily,' Official Statement on Name Change to 'Lily Music' of Remaining Bandmates to Follow

What used to be Callalily's Facebook page is now called LILY Music.

The profile and cover photos have been changed to white backgrounds, with these changes appearing to have occurred this week.

Reports on Thursday said Kean Cipriano left the band that he fronted for 17 years.

On Messenger, LILY Music told GMA News Online that they will release an official statement soon. "We just have to consult with our lawyers," they said.

In an exclusive interview with GMA News Online, Chynna Ortaleza, Kean's wife and O/C Records Vice President, clarified he did not leave the band, but rather disengaged from them.

“He did decide to leave the set-up of being in a band. However, Callalily kasi was always under his intellectual property. The brand stays with him.”

Chynna added, “If I look kasi into how it’s being phrased at the moment, syempre it’s easy to say na, ‘oh, he left Callalily.’ But he just left the format of the band. He did disengage with his former bandmates but the name Callalily stays with Kean Cipriano.”

Chynna also said Kean wanted to license the name to his former bandmates, “but I don’t think they understood what that meant. And it’s being loosely thrown in social media na he stole [the name]."

“Sabi ko nga, we know the truth naman and if they cannot understand what happened, I guess that’s just how the story is. And they have more years ahead of them to learn about the rights and the business of music.”

According to Chynna, they tried to "fix things properly" with Kean's former bandmates. "Sino ba naman yung gustong to leave things in the air na hindi siya plantsado?" She reasoned.

"We really wanted to fix things legally with them, like a proper label release was something that I was thinking of doing with them," she said.

Chynna also mentioned how Kean was "actively trying to set a meeting with them because he had the best intentions for his bandmates as well."

"It was more of a decision of progressive growth for each member than a solo decision na ‘I want out.’ Hindi siya ganun,” the Kapuso actress explained.

According to Chynna, Kean had been thinking of disengaging for years and going solo but needed time to process until it felt like the right time.

“It’s just very unfortunate that his bandmates didn’t want to talk to us anymore despite the continued efforts of trying to get in touch with them because we want to fix things," she emphasized.

When asked whether Kean and his former bandmates are on good terms, Chynna answered, “no, they’re not. Kasi parang Kean was really trying his best to reach out but he just kept on getting no replies eh. They didn’t want to talk to him."

“But I guess that’s just how their response is and we really can’t do anything about it. Kean naman is very open-minded and you can’t force a certain kind of reaction sa mga taong hindi ready or hindi nakikita yung paths [for growth].”

Callalily became one of the top OPM bands since they debuted in 2005. Their songs like “Stars,” “Magbalik,” and “Pansamantala,” remain top hits to this day.

Their most recent single “Bahala Na” featuring This Band was released in 2021 under O/C Records.

On LILY Music's Facebook page, many fans have commented how much they miss the band. — LA, GMA News

To think si Kean na nga ang pinaka nakinabang for more than a decade dahil sa band (kahit na mega autotune naman boses nya) dami nya naging side hustle and opportunity ng dahil sa band nila, nag artista pa nga. Group effort naman kaya nagka pangalan yung Callalily noh

  24. Hindi he legally register callality under HIS name ONLY w/o his bandmates' knowing? Baka kaya ayaw nilang kausapin ka kasi inisahan mo sila. Also pag ganyan ba na yung name lang ng band ang niregister mo sayo, does it cover the songs din or dapat ibang legal process / registration pa yun lile kay taylor swift na nasa contract nia na yung label may ari ng nga gawa nia. Kasi as far as i know, they didnt start nmn with o/c records since own label yan nina kean. So pano ung mga sinaunang music nila

    1. As far as I know, iba ang Trademark registration sa Copyright registration. Kung niregister niya sa name niya ang Callalily, dapat register din niya ang copyright ng songs para Callalily na talaga ang may ari.

  25. sus, pwede namang umalis na sya sa Callalily and let his former bandmates find a new vocalist then tapos at wala nang pa-emeng ganito tas mag-solo album ka Kean then improve your branding as a solo artist. tsaka sana bawasan nya pagka mayabang nya, pareho lang sila ni Tutti ng 6cyclemind,hahaha!

  27. Paano kaya naging intellectual property ni Kean yung "Callalily"? E db most of the time pag ganyang banda banda yung mga members mismo ang nag dedecide ng name unless nalang one man band na si Kean dati pa patapos sumali nalang yung 3 sknia? Ang unfair din niyan sa mga kabanda niya kasi ha lalo nat hindi lang naman siya ang main composer ng banda. Magegets ko pa if mala Taylor Swift siya na sknia lang talaga dapat lahat ng credits pero hindi db? Effort nilang lahat. One word: ganid

    ReplyDelete

    1. Kung niregister niya ang Trademark ng Callalily under his personal name then talagang kanya lang yun. What confuses me is, if sa kanya nga naka-register, bakit niya pa kailangan makipag-settle sa mga bandmates niya? If sa kanya nga legally ang name, the bandmates do not have the right to use it kahit ano pa ang gawin nila.

      Delete
    2. 157 baka questionable yung pag papa trademark niya ng name under his name? So to appease yung awayan nila nakikipag settle nalang siya but at the end hindi pa din sila nagkasundo? For me, ang kapal ng mukha niya to take the name whether naka register man sknia yun o hindi. Collective effort pa din nila yan kaya nakilala ang Callalily. Lahat sila may ambag. Buti nalang iba ata ang batas when it comes to royalties kung hindi luging lugi yung bandmates niya.

      Delete
    3. 11:37, I’m thinking along the same lines. Baka hindi alam ng banda na niregister niya under his name. I don’t think papayag sila if alam nila na gagawin niya yun.

      Earth to Chynna. Kahit ordinaryong tao alam ang pagkakaiba ng owning the name vs licensing the name. The bandmates for sure know what it means kaya nga hindi sila pumapayag. Anyway, good luck sa inyong mag-asawa. May gusto pa kayang makatrabaho kayo sa ginawa niyong yan?

      Delete
  28. Re: intellectual property, posible kasing pina trademark ni Kean yung Callalily under his name, trademarked na yun even before the band was formed, so technically may right sya to use the name even without the bandmates.

    For example, yung Rivermaya, hindi sya nadala ni Bamboo kahit sya ang famous member kasi it's not his intellectual property. Pwedeng naka trademark sya under the band's management or something.

    Regarding royalties ng song, depende rin kung sino sumulat ng kanta. Hindi pwedeng sa Callalily (which is technically si Kean na lang) lang lahat ng royalty. Sa pagkakaalam ko sa individuals na gumawa ng kanta napupunta ang royalties ng song .

    Same example, sa Rivermaya or Rico Blanco as an artist. May songs ang Rivermaya (with Bamboo as vocals) na hindi basta basta pwede play ni Rico, at same rin na may songs na hindi basta basta pwede play ni Bamboo. Kasi nga depende sa gumawa ng kanta.

    Siguro may right rin naman si Chynna magsalita kasi sa pagkaintindi ko sya ang VP ng recording company? Tama ba? If yes, then okay lang mag explain sya.

    The only thing that bothered me ay yung sabihin pa nyang the other band members don't understand and that it will take them years to understand the business and legal side of things.

    I also understand na may hinanakit yung other members but if talagang trademarked yung band name under Kean, i don't think may habol sila.

  29. Tingin ko yung hinanakit ng bandmates is, gusto ni Kean kanya lahat? Naidaan sa legalities so wala silang magagawa. Siguro lang, mas knowledgeable nga si Kean on the business side of things kaya technically nasa tama naman sya. Ayun nga lang, syempre yung success nila at hits nila as a band eh pare-pareho naman nilang trinabaho so baka more of masama siguro ang loob nila na aalis na ang bokalista, kanya pa lahat? Not sure sa royalties kasi wala namang nabanggit si Chynna sa statement nya pero malamang to some extent kasama yan sa issue nila. Hindi naman mali si Kean kung legal naman nga. Ayun lang siguro, more or honoring na lang din yung pinaghirapan ng bandmates nya?

    1. Tama. Kaya you don't burn bridges talaga, ang tagal mong nakasama yang mga yan only to end up being bitter sa isa't isa.

      Ang tingin ko, baka inattempt ni Kean ibenta yung Callalily na name sa band mates? Kasi may binanggit si Chynna na they tried to settle it legally pero ayaw na makipag usap ng other party. Kaya siguro nagkasamaan ng loob kasi bakit mo nga naman babayaran yung pangalan ng banda na nirepresent mo for 17 years.igu

      Pero yun nga, technically, talo sila dyan.

    2. Ito ang totoo dun! Grabe nga naman kung sosolohin at aangkinin lang niya lahat ng rights at kung sa kanya lang mapupunta ang royalties na mahabang panahong pinundar ng Callily. Ganid nga naman yun. Dapat pantay pantay

      Delete
  30. Legality aside ang unkind naman ng ginawa ni kean. May pangalan na siya and he can get gigs without the band. Yung band mates niya are not known individually and rely on the callalily brand. Ang hilig pa gamitin ni Kean yung word na disengage as if it makes a difference. Whether it’s his choice or not, he left the band period.

  31. Kayabang nitong magasawang ito to say na hindi maiintindihan ng mga bandmates nya yung mga bagay bagay.

    FYI, HS batchmate ko yung isa sa mga ex-bandmates. Si Alden Acosta. He graduated as the class valedictorian. Kung tama pagkakatanda ko, one of his parents is lawyer. Tanda ko nga parang gusto din sya maglaw ng parents nya (and even our teachers). Pero he pursued his passion: music.

    Kaya Chynna, hinay hinay ka sa pagsasabing di nakakaintindi ex-bandmates ng mister mo. In fact, masmukhang hindi nakakaintindi ang mister mo dahil kailangan pa na ikaw ang maging spokesperson nya. Wala ba syang sariling bibig at dila para ikaw ang pumapel ng ganyan?

  33. Kadiri yung insinuation na 'we're the good guys, they're the bad guys' nitong si chynna. Napaka-righteous at paladesisyon. If i remember, si kean nagcoin ng callalily name kaya siguro nakalusot siya na sa kanya yung intellectual rights and 'di rin siguro inexpect ng bandmates niya na masisira because of 'business' yung years of trust and collective effort that they built these years.

    Di ko lang gets bat di niya nalang ipaubaya lalo nat siya ang pinaka nakibang sa fame na meron ang Callalily. Dami niyang naging side gigs dahil sumikat ang banda. Kung di sumikat yung song nila lalo na yung Magbalik, walang Kean ngayon. Lugi pa siya kasi di naman siya composer non.
