In our debut version of “My Motto” on MYX, Saweetie shares her love for both of her mixed Black and Filipino culture, she shares how fans call her “Ate Icy,” (which is a Filipina term of endearment for a sister or sister-like figure).
On a recent episode of her Vlog series, “The Icy Life,” Billboard chart-topping Saweetie talks with her mom about her love for adobo, lumpia and sinigang. While she cooks the meal, her beautiful mom shares a funny story of how the rapper accidentally ate wasabi at a young age and was crying.
Saweetie mentioned in our interview her love for sinigang alongside her funny “ma’arte” nickname given to her by her Lola. She talked about loving to visit Palawan, Philippines and how black and Filipino cooking and culture is very similar.
