Televiewers of ‘Fast Talk with Boy Abunda’ and even its production team expressed concern after their guest ‘Boobay’ suddenly paused in the middle of the interview.
It can be recalled that Boobay experienced a mild stroke in 2016, and the comedian admitted that until now, he’s still being affected by what happened to him 7 years ago.
In the middle of the interview, Abunda asked the comedian about his career.
“How was that feeling? Take me back to that moment nung ika’y sinabihan na mahusay ka and you’re one of the finalists. Anong sinabi mo noon? Naniwala ka ba?” the host asked.
However, many noticed that Boobay was not responding properly and only making repeatedly short sounds.
Abunda quickly checked the condition of Boobay and decided to hug the comedian.
“You’re okay, Boobay? Are you okay?” Abunda said.
The host then asked for a short break so the medical team could check the comedian’s condition.
“Kahapon po kasi Nay, Tay… tulungan lamang natin… ay medyo masama ang pakiramdam ni Boobay at… let’s take a break Direk. We’ll take care of Boobay…let’s take a short break… let’s take a short break.” he said.
Boobay admitted that he was already not okay during the day of the interview with Boy Abunda.
“Kahapon, nagte-taping kami tapos bigla akong nag-hang sa ‘Boobay and Tekla Show,’ siguro dahil ‘yun sa ilaw din. At the same time kaunti pa ang tulog ko noon, na maling mali sa ginawa ko na dapat kailangan talaga bago ka pumunta sa isang trabaho huwag ka munang kukuha ng ibang trabaho para kahit paano mailagay mo ang katawan mo sa maayos,” Boobay narrated.
“Mali sa akin ‘yung ganu’n. Pero at the same time sinabi naman sa akin ng doktor before na mangyayari talaga after ng nangyari sa akin na naospital ako. After noon maaaring mag-hang ako. The best thing that you have to do is to, mag-stop ka lang at hayaan mong bumalik sa dati ang ikot mo,” he added.
