Filipino rapper OG Kaybee has been shot and killed in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
According to Manila Bulletin, the 32-year-old rapper – real name Jomer Galicia – was shot multiple times along a viaduct in Alabang on Monday night (February 21) and was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
Muntinlupa authorities are currently investigating the incident, and are reportedly on the search for three suspects, who the police say pulled up beside Galicia in a white van before shooting him and fleeing the scene. A motive for the shooting has yet to be confirmed.
An Inquirer report claimed fellow rapper Abaddon, who has collaborated with OG Kaybee in the past, witnessed the shooting and alerted the police.
Jomer Galicia was a member of Filipino rap crew 187 Mobstaz, alongside rap duo JuanThugs N Harmony.
OG Kaybee most recently featured on Tiny Montana’s August 2021 single, ‘Where Ya’ From, Pt. 2’ featuring Mhot, Sixth Threat, Pricetagg, Apekz and Abaddon.
Galicia’s family has declined to give a statement to the media.
Tributes to the late rapper have begun pouring in on social media following the news of OG Kaybee’s death.
JuanThugs N Harmony shared their grief at Galicia’s death, saying that justice must be served, urging their followers to add the hashtag “#justiceforjomergalicia” in their posts.
