Kapuso actor Addy Raj posted his reunion with Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha on Instagram. He recalled that he first encountered her when he joined the ABS-CBN show I Love OPM in 2016 where Lani was one of the judges.
It’s Showtime host Anne Curtis used to host the said show.
Reunion with Lani
In the Instagram post, Addy shared how they saw each other in the taping of The Clash where Lani was, once again, a judge.
“Nagsimula ang showbiz career ko sa isang singing competition kung saan isa sa mga judges si Miss Lani Misalucha. Nagkita kami kahapon sa taping ng The Clash, kung saan isa ulit siya sa mga judges.”
While observing the contestants who got booted out of the said singing search, Addy remembered how he had once been in the same shoes. He felt the urge to reach out to the eliminated contestants of The Clash to hug them and tell them everything will be alright. He encouraged them to continue dreaming because there would be better opportunities in the future.
“Nakita ko din yung ibang eliminated contestants na umiiyak at naalala ko yung mga nangyari sa akin dati. Gusto ko silang lapitan at yakapin para sabihing, “Magiging okay din ang lahat. Hindi pa katapusan ng mundo kapag natalo ka sa isang reality show competition. Tuloy lang ang buhay at may mga darating na bago at mas magandang opportunities sa inyo.””
Lani still remembers Addy
Addy was surprised that Lani still remembered him. He also noted how she looked younger than ever.
“Sobra pala akong nagulat na naaalala pa ako ni Miss Lani, at naaalala niya ang pangalan ko sa dami ng contestants na jinudge niya! Medyo matagal na panahon na ang lumipas pero parang mas lalo yatang bumabata si Miss Lani! #TheClash”
