With the release of her latest single “Amakabogera” this month, Maymay Entrata said she is proud of the song, especially her live performance on the Wish 107.5 Bus which as of this writing has already garnered 3.4M views on YouTube.

“Hindi ko in-expect yung nagustuhan nila yung tono, yung kanta. Pero yung naiintindihan nila yung bawat lyrics dun sa kanta, naiintindihan nila yung mensahe na pinapahiwatig sa mga listeners, dun ako mas natutuwa. Kasi siyempre parang minsan may mga insecurity tayo tapos dapat sana itong ‘Amakabogera’ ay makatulong at maka-boost ng confidence niyo. At sa nakikita ko naman diyos ko ang dami namang sumuporta ‘Amakabogera’ at ginamit yung kanta ko,” she shared during her MPowered concert mediacon.

Before the memorable live performance, the “Amakabogera” singer revealed she did not immediately say “yes” to the local radio station’s invitation to perform because she was still not fully confident of her skills as a singer.

“Nung una nagdadalawang isip ako kasi inisip ko handa na ba ako? Kasi yung totoo guys diyos ko, yun ata yung pinaka unang live ko na hindi taping. Kasi radio yun eh kaya live na live yun. Kinakabahan ako hanggang ngayon kapag naiisip ko yun pero thankful ako dahil nga naging successful din yun at umabot na sa point na hindi na ikakahiya, dapat i-embrace ko na ‘to. Pero gusto kong malaman nila na hindi naman ako agad agad naging confident at ganito na. May proseso yun. At yung prosesong yun ay nag-reach out ako sa mga taong eksperto sa pag-ko-coach ng pagkanta. Kaya masaya ako. Sobrang saya,” she recalled.

“Amakabogera” is the follow-up single to her song “Di Kawalan” which Maymay released in May. The 24-year-old kapamilya star was not shy in sharing that she insisted on taking voice lessons to improve her singing.

“Para sa ganun ay mas ma-enhance yung boses ko. Kasi nga akala ko after ng concert ko last 2019 akala ko yun na yun eh. Kasi nga hindi ko pa na-e-embrace, yung fans yung hindi sila tumitigil na maniwala sa akin,” she admitted.

With her new song, Maymay said she is proud of her latest vocal performance.

“Yes kasi yung ‘Amakabogera’ ginawa yun para sa akin. So nung una ko siyang napakinggan sabi ko napakaganda nitong kanta na ‘to. Pero ang tanong, kaya ko ba? Kakayanin ko ba? (laughs). Sobrang birit, sobrang taas. Sa lahat yata ng kinanta ko yun ata pinakamataas. Hinigitan pa yung ‘Kakakyanin Kaya’. Tapos doon na ako nag-decide na hindi na puwede yung puchu-puchu ito, kailangan ko na makawala dun sa hiya ko when it comes pag kumakanta ako. Parang sabi ko, ‘Lord, paano ba?’ Para pala ma-achieve mo yung pagiging confident mo sa pagkanta, paghirapan mo siya talaga.

“So ayun nag-seek na ako ng help and then sobrang worth it kasi ang dami kong natutunan kay Ms. Jade at mas madami pa akong matututunan when it comes to mas mabuhay pa yung kanta. Kaya sobrang masaya, sobrang nakakatuwa, sobrang worth it na nakita ko nga yung live ko sa pag-pe-perform ng ‘Amakabogera’ kasi nabigyan ko ng hustisya yung kanta. Masayang masaya ako na ipinagkatiwala nila sa akin ito,” she explained.

In her upcoming digital concert dubbed MPowered, Maymay is expected to perform the two songs, plus more of her hits with the concert streaming exclusively on KTX.ph on November 26, with a re-run on November 27.
