Actor and model Luis Hontiveros went viral on social media this week after performing his version of ‘Jopay’ during the Miss Pagadian 2023 on June 19, 2023.
The said performance received thousands of criticisms from the netizens, calling the version of Luis ‘out-of-tune.’
Some even called the actor ‘unprofessional’ for allegedly not preparing for the event.
His response to the netizens also amplified the criticisms he was receiving because of being confrontational to the netizens.
“Si Mayor Sammy Co and his family mismo ang nag-cheer niyan. maka-react kayo, akala nyo kasali kyo sa live event namin hahaha. Inggit pikit.” Luis said.
“Di naman kayo pinilit na manood pero honestly guys, to all my bashers, thank you so much for this! You guys are the best!” he added.
Ogie, a talent manager, said in his online show that actors like Luis should prepare themselves for their gigs so more people would hire them in the future.
“Next time ha. ‘Yung mga performers na tumatanggap ng out of town shows. Alam niyo, raket ‘yan. Masakit na nga ngayon sa tenga ‘pag sinabi mong raket e. Pero dapat pinaghahandaan din ‘yun para makaulit.” said Ogie.
“Kasi may mga bisita ng mayor ng ibang bayan, malay niyo ay, gusto ko to. Kukunin ko ‘to next time. ‘Di yung ganyan na takbo ka ng takbo tapos papakanta mo pala sa audience ‘yun.” he added.
As of writing, Luis has yet to give any response to Ogie’s advice.
