A netizen couldn’t hide his admiration for internet celebrity and actor Renz ‘Baby Giant’ Baña, behind the social media page ‘Jejemon Vines’.
It can be recalled that Renz, known for his short stature, was gathering millions of views online because of his funny videos.
According to netizen Boss Pangz, the influencer became a subject of mockery in the past because of his appearance.
But now, Renz was being watched by millions of netizens on social media and also in television after being part of FPJ’s Batang Quiapo.
“Yung batang dating binubully noon ngayun sikat na sikat na sabi nga nila gawin mulang ispirasyun yung mga ng mamaliit sayu dadating yung time na tatawanan mo nalang sila mas lalo silang manggagalaiti sayu,” he said.
In an interview, Renz shared that he only tested his luck by traveling to Manila.
His original plan was to finish his studies, but his cousin urged him to become an influencer.
“Sobrang hirap po talaga, kayod nang kayod po talaga. ‘Yun po ‘yung mahirap talaga ‘yung sabay-sabay po kaming nag-aaral, tapos ‘yung pinagkukunan po ng mga baon namin at saka pagkain namin sa araw-araw. Mahiyain pa ‘ko dati nun eh pero sabi (ng pinsan ko), gawa tayo, ‘wag kang mahiya, kaya mo ‘yan,” he said.
He also dreamed to build a house for his family.
“Isa po sa mga pangarap ko sa buhay ‘yung magkaroon ako ng bahay dito sa Maynila kukunin ko sila (pamilya) sa probinsya, lilipat ko sila rito …Gusto rin nila ng bagong buhay.” he said.
