Idol Philippines grand winner Zephanie Dimaranan admitted that she was overwhelmed when people started comparing her to popstar royalty Sarah Geronimo.
"Siyempre parang na-shock po na kino-compare nila ako kay ate Sarah pero for me po kasi ate Sarah is ate Sarah and siguro I mean alam niyo po ‘yun ibang level siya. Iba 'yung level niya sa level ko and sobrang iniidolo ko po siya. Kaya sa lahat nang nagco-compare okay lang naman po pero I mean hindi ko naman po wini-wish na higitan si ate Sarah kasi idol ko siya. I want to be like her dahil gusto ko rin ma-achieve 'yung na-achieve niya,” Zephanie said in an interview with One Music PH.
Now that she is part of the music industry, Zephanie remarked that she has been learning a lot of things about life in the limelight. “’Yung mga learnings siguro always do your best and talagang kailangan na matuto kang makisama, 'yun din 'yung key dahil every day iba iba 'yung makakasama mo and siguro lagi ka rin lang mag-smile and be kind,” she stated.
Zephanie will stage her very first concert at the New Frontier Theater on November 28. The singer expressed her elation about the upcoming major show.
”I am very excited and medyo may pressure po sa akin dahil first major concert and ilang months pa lang po ang nakalipas since nong nanalo ako ng Idol Ph. Very excited ako dahil big stars ang kasama kong artists and sobra po akong excited na mapanood po nila,” she said.
