Alden mesmerizes Cebuanos
An overwhelming crowd of approximately 15,000 cheered Pambansang Bae Alden Richards in the recently concluded Kapuso Fans Day on Oct. 2 at Gaisano Island Mall Mactan, Lapu-Lapu City in Cebu.
Richards cannot help but be emotional seeing the Cebuano’s warm reception of him. The actor says, “I really felt the love of the Cebuanos. I just enjoyed every single moment of seeing the smiles and hearing the cheers of all our Kapuso. Thank you so much for the support.”
Even if his flight was delayed, this didn’t stop the Cebuanos to meet Alden in the flesh making the mall show the most attended Kapuso Fans Day in Cebu. “Until now I am still in awe at the number of people who went there to join the show and I believe it is by God’s grace that I made it to Cebu to make all our Kapuso happy.”
The other half of the phenomenal AlDub love team visited the Cebuanos to thank them personally for their unwavering support to Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye,” where the actor shares a split-screen romance with Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza.
The crowd burst with joy when Ricahrds performed special numbers for his fans. He sang “Akin Ka na Lang” by The Itchyworms, “Can’t Find No Reason” by Louie Heredia, and the AlDub theme “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran that made the supporters go wild.
The fun didn’t stop as the Cebuanos participated in exciting contests, like “That’s My Bae,” where male participants showcased their twerking dance moves; and “Dubsmash Like Yaya,” where the females acted out like Yaya Dub.
Oliver Amoroso, GMA head for Regional Strategy and Business Development Division says, “The viewers are always the main drivers of the Network’s success. The success of Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye is traced to the undying support of the Filipinos, including, in particular, the Cebuanos. That is why our Kapuso stars, like Alden Richards, will never hesitate to go the extra mile to personally extend their gratitude to the fans, who serve as the Network’s biggest inspiration.”
