Inigo Pascual is proud that his friend Bailey May was accepted into Simon Fuller’s global pop group Now United. In an interview with PUSH, Inigo remarked that the teen star deserves the opportunity since he is one of the most hardworking people he knows. Bailey participated in a boot camp in the US for a week and was later chosen to be an official member of the global group.
“Before he actually went to the States I messaged him on Instagram, on direct message. Sabi ko Bailey good luck kasi alam kong how passionate he is. Before when sa ASAP pa lang kami magkasama, he was taking classes sa G-Force, he used to take vocal lessons and I would asked him how are you, how was it kasi I’m the type of person [na] I’m a fan of anyone who’s passionate of their craft and Bailey is one of those guys,” he said.
Inigo relayed that it is a dream come true for Bailey and that he is happy for him. “That’s something that I know he wanted from the start pa lang and to be part of a global group is a dream. Everybody wants that and I’m very, very happy for Bailey and alam kong mas gagalingan niya pa,” he shared.
He added, “Alam ko namang i-enjoy niya ‘yung experience and sana mas ma-discover pa niya ‘yung sarili niya through this experience.”
Inigo once auditioned for a different all-boy group in America. “I made it to the final group but the thing was, I don’t want to talk bad but contracts sometimes don’t work as well as how you wanted it to be and I believe na kung para sa’yo, para sa’yo and right now where I’m at I’m very, very happy,” he stated.
