It can be recalled that Ogie went viral on social media because of the revelation of his former talent Liza Soberano who claimed that she’s only getting 30% of her talent fee because of the commissions being deducted by her managers.
However, Ogie denied the accusations of Liza, saying that the former Kapamilya actress was getting 63% of her talent fee.
Aiko also went viral after she took a swipe against Liza who was being called ‘ungrateful’ by some netizens after she claimed that her career in the Philippines was restricted and she had no freedom to express her ideas.
“Ang punto ko at natutunan sa manager ko na si Tito Douglas Quijano ay be grateful. Don’t burn bridges. Kasi maliit ang mundo ng showbiz para mas paliitin mo pa ito. Ang kaaway mo nuon maari maging tulay para mas me magandang oppurtunidad syo sa pag rate.
“Naniniwala ako sa salitang What comes around Goes around. Kapag nagtanim ka ng maganda me aaniin ka maganda. At hindi mo pwede solohin ang lahat ng kredito sa sarili mo lang.
“Collaboration of Great minds ang lahat ng karera sa buhay. Kasi sa mundo namen at mag 35 yrs na ata ako sa showbiz hindi pwede ang talent lang ang mag isiip lahat ng career moves eh. Dapat me kaagapay ka na tumtimon sa laban mo.
“Sa nga baguhan ngayon ang payo ko lang be Humble enough to admit that whatever achievement you have achieved in life is not just about you! Its about the people around you na me malasakit sayo na pagandahin ang karera mo matuto magpasalamat.” she stated.
