Manila Mayor Isko Moreno became emotional after DZBB Teleradyo host Mike Enriquez suddenly mentioned German Moreno, also known as Kuya Germs, his long-time mentor and the one who made him escape poverty.
After an hour of interview, Enriquez told Moreno that someone is watching him and the Mayor was suddenly surprised when the veteran journalist said that he’s referring to Kuya Germs.
“Kitang kita ko po ang ngiti niya, ang pangalan niya po ay Kuya Germs… ang lahat ng ito ay para sa kanya,” Enriquez said.
The Mayor quickly became emotional and tried to stop his tears from falling while Enriquez is teasing him.
Moreno explained that he’s only among the 200 talents handled by Kuya Germs, however, the artist and showbiz icon who passed away in 2016 didn’t fail to take care of him.
“Ever since lagi siyang naka focus sa akin,” Moreno said.
Enriquez believes that Kuya Germs is very proud to the latest achievement of his former talent who’s now the most powerful man in Manila.
Moreno considered Kuya Germs as his second father who saved him from poverty.
He started his showbiz career in the “That’s Entertainment” program hosted by Kuya Germs.
“He opened the doors for me and to be honest, wala ho sigurong Isko Moreno ngayon kung walang Kuya Germs. Wala akong ka talent-talent noon sa pagkanta o pagsayaw, but he took risk on me, at ‘yun ang naging susi ko upang maiahon ko ang sarili at pamilya ko sa kahirapan.” Moreno said in a past statement.
