- “I can’t say that we weren’t scared. I can’t say that it wasn’t a risk,” Ogie Alcasid said, revealing his and Regine’s transfer to another network.
- Ogie stated that Regine’s transfer of network was managed well and went smoothly
- “In the end, we’re all working towards one goal and that is to entertain our Filipino audiences.”
Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez said goodbye to her home network of the past 20 years. It was the news that everyone, who’s interested in showbiz, was talking about last year. She officially joined the ABS-CBN Network and signed her exclusive two-year contract with them last October 17. And just recently, Push posted a conversation with her husband, Ogie Alcasid, regarding this matter.
According to Ogie, the transition of his wife transferring to the Kapamilya Network went smoothly for the two of them.
“I think she managed it really well. I think it went very smooth. I think ABS-CBN has been very welcoming of her and the other artists were very warm towards her so it made her feel at home so I think okay na okay. Dun sa mga dati nang Kapamilya fans they also welcomed her kasi siyempre sila yung mga manunuod so it was really good.”
He revealed that their transfer to the new network was not an easy decision and was indeed a journey, having both of them taking a leap of faith with God’s guidance.
“Our transfer – I’d say it was a journey. I can’t say that we weren’t scared. I can’t say that it wasn’t a risk. It was a leap of faith for both of us but we just stuck to what we believed in and then of course with God on our side.”
Ogie also said that both he and Regine just wanted to continue the entertainment that they have been giving to their fans.
“In the end, we’re all working towards one goal and that is to entertain our Filipino audiences. It just so happens that we’re trying to grab everybody’s attention but we’re all comrades, we’re all colleagues in an industry which is very small. In the end, respeto lang talaga. Me and Regine have a song out now, the theme song of The General’s Daughter. I wrote it and she sang it so that’s our last collaboration. It’s great. It’s doing very well with a lot of good feedback. I think it’s a hit already.”
He also shared that despite the tight schedules, they still find time to enjoy the simple dates they have at home, both he and Regine have been previously busy due to their respective Valentine concerts.
“We just have a barbeque in the house (laughs). You know a good date for us is just a movie. Because we don’t get to do it a lot. So it’s a luxury for us when we get to spend it, just the two of us. Because we have a seven-year-old and si Nate gusto niya sumama eh hindi naman siya puwede sa medyo pang-matanda na movie or anything romantic kasi he’ll just fall asleep. So it has to be a movie na medyo pambata. But when we get the chance to watch a good movie with popcorn, holding hands, sipping softdrinks, that’s a great date for us.”
