Filipino One Direction fans will definitely feel envious of Jayda who is among the lucky people who are sure to meet Niall Horan once the latter visits the country for a show in Manila. After all, she will open for the "Slow Hands" hit maker's concert in the country. But how exactly was she able to snag the once in a lifetime opportunity of performing in an arena before Niall's fans?
"So basically I was told that I was shortlisted for the event. I mean I had no idea that this was happening while this process was happening. I was part of a shortlist that they submitted to Niall's management and for approval," she said in an interview with Push during her birthday fancon event.
"But I'm not sure kung sino pa bang artist na kasama ko sa shortlist na 'yun. Pero we were just informed na lang din. Kinontact na lang kami ng parents ko ng organizers ng event. Sabi, 'We got her to open for Niall' then that was it," she continued.
The 15-year-old up-and-coming artist also expressed her excitement on meeting Niall whom she revealed to be her favorite One Direction member.
"I'm so excited 'cause he was my favorite in One Direction and I've always been such a big fan of his. I have so much respect for him as an artist so parang dream come true - fangirl dream come true," she stated.
Niall Horan's Manila concert is happening on June 10, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
