The push for a switch in the country's type of government to Federalism has been very controversial lately. Its powerful urge to change the way in which the country is run has clearly been met with feedbacks from political analysts and netizens alike.

The shift to Federalism issue has said to become more disputed after Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson, together with co-blogger Drew Olivar, played out a dance routine to promote federalism through a jingle entitled "Pepedederalismo."

Subsequently, the viral video made netizens seethed on the web and made broad backfire to Asec. Mocha which consequently incited fellow Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) official , Harold Clavite, Director-General of the Philippine Information Agency (PIA), to asked Uson to publicly apologize and go on leave.

Different responses have surfaced online after Clavite's declaration. Others say that Asec. Mocha just merits the choice of PCOO, while a few, agreed with her position and shielded her from the rage of people in general.

One of those individuals who protected the PCOO Asec is veteran broadcaster and former TV host, Jay Sonza, who is known for being courageous in talking his psyche over different national issues.

He had earlier slammed the Director General of PIA for the latter's call on Mocha to take a leave.

Now on his recent Facebook posts, Sir Sonza once again took to Uson's side, defended and justified Mocha and Drew's own way of promoting Federalism.

The veteran journo thereupon explained how the people should understand “pepe-dede-ralismo” jingle and the significant and true meaning behind it.

He then provided his definition of "i-pepe" and "i-dede". And mind you guys, Sir Sonza really gave justice and good sense to the way he interpreted those phrases.

According to him, "i-pepe" means "give birth" and "i-dede" means "to nurture", where the road to the protection of a nation is actually to give birth and to nurture it's people.

"i-pepe" means "isilang" ibig sabihin, you deliver, you give birth.
"i dede" means "pasusuhin upang mabuhay" na nangangahulugan ng = you nurture (pag-amumuma)
"i pepe... i dede"... to give birth and to nurture",
he wrote.

Sir Sonza then complimented Drew and Mocha for their topical approach of utilizing the natural process of giving birth and nurturing life for stirring public awareness to the possible change of the country's governance system.

"I would like to congratulate Drew and Mocha for their thematic approach and use the natural process of giving birth and nurturing life, a new way of arousing public awareness into possibly changing our system of governance in the Philippines.", Sir Sonza uttered.

Likewise, Sir Sonza further explained the concept of Federalism, where the community and its people needs to "to give birth and to nurture" to completely bring life to our society and nation.

"Ang federalism ay isang konsepto ng pamumuhay at pamayanan na kailangang "isilang at pasusuhin o I-pepe at I-dede" upang maging ganap ang pagbibigay ng buhay sa ating lipunan at bansa.", he stressed.

The veteran journo then ended his post by saying that in fact, Drew and Mocha are considered geniuses and rather than discrediting their endeavors, they ought to be appreciated for making the whole nation to talk and think about Federalism.

"Kung tutuusin, maituturing na mga henyo sina drew at mocha. Instead of belittling their efforts, they should be extended gratitude making the entire country talk and think federal triggered by their communications excellence.", he ended.

"ITO ANG TAMANG PAG-UNAWA SA PEPE AT DEDE.
The correct way of understanding "i-pepe..i-dede"

"i-pepe" means "isilang" ibig sabihin, you deliver, you give birth.
"i dede" means "pasusuhin upang mabuhay" na nangangahulugan ng = you nurture (pag-amumuma)
"i pepe... i dede"... to give birth and to nurture


Ito ang daan tungo sa pangangalaga ng isang bansa, of being a Philippine Nation - where people are educated, respectful, with dignity and can take the responsibility for the continuing task of nation building.

I would like to congratulate Drew and Mocha for their thematic approach and use the natural process of giving birth and nurturing life, a new way of arousing public awareness into possibly changing our system of governance in the Philippines.

Ang federalism ay isang konsepto ng pamumuhay at pamayanan na kailangang "isilang at pasusuhin o I-pepe at I-dede" upang maging ganap ang pagbibigay ng buhay sa ating lipunan at bansa.
