Ogie Alcasid on Regine Velasquez: ‘Lagi namin sinasabi kasi kung nasaan ang trabaho, doon ka.’
Now an official part of ABS-CBN, singer-songwriter Ogie
Alcasid said that his wife, Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez knew about his big
“Parte ‘yan ng pag-aasawa, ‘yung mga career moves. Although
kami naman ay hindi kami necessary nagpapakialaman sa ginagawa namin.
Sumusuporta lang kami sa isa’t isa,” he said.
Nonetheless, Ogie said that he greatly values the opinion of
Regine. “Pero mahalaga kasi malaman namin ‘yung opinion ‘nun partner namin. And
of course, Regine’s opinion is probably the most important opinion to me, for
me, next to God’s. Kung ano ‘yung sabihin niya, may weight ‘yun sa akin.”
Given that Regine is from the rival network, he said that
they would go to where they will be able to exercise their capabilities. He
said that he found that venue in the Kapamilya network.
“Lagi namin sinasabi kasi kung nasaan ang trabaho, doon ka.
Lagi namin sinasabi na kung saan ‘yung passion mo at kung ano ‘yung binigay sa
iyo ng Panginoon at doon mo mailalabas lahat ng ibinigay sa iyong gifts,
talents, doon ka. Weighing everything, dito ko nakita na mailalabas ko lahat ng
gifts ko at this junction in my life.”
The iconic musician said that his 6-year-old son Nate is
already showing signs of being a performer.
Saying that he and Regine would post about Nate’s fun
activities on their Instagram accounts, Ogie added, “He’s a natural performer.
Wala siyang inhibitions. Professional. Alam niya kung kailan siya titigil, alam
niya kung kailan siya kailangan umarte. ‘Yun ang sinasabi sa akin ng asawa ko
‘pag nag-co-commercial shoots sila, very behaved. Ang mga bata, alam naman
natin, mahirap i-control, di ba? Kasi syempre magulo. Siya, parang he was
tailor-made to be an entertainer. May disiplina.”
Aside from being a judge at It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan, Ogie is also set to become a jury member of the upcoming Your Face Sounds Familiar: Kids edition
