Amid the controversy surrounding Kapamilya singer Morissette Amon’s walkout from a concert, Jobert Sucaldito said he saw nothing wrong with the interview of TV Patrol’s Mario Dumaual with the singer.
In his Facebook post yesterday, November 7, Jobert, the concert’s producer, said the interview was “very decent, clean, and simple.”
He said Mario arrived 15 minutes before the concert began and conducted a joint interview with Morissette and Kiel Alo.
“They exchanged pleasantries sa short chikahan with Mario. Part of the question ni Mario ay ang tungkol sa love life niya pero very casual… Hindi naman bombarding at sinagot naman niya nang maayos,” Jobert narrated.
“Then sabi nga ni Mario sana raw ay magkaayos na sila ng family niya and Morissette said na ‘I’m praying po na maayos din ang lahat. In time.’ And basically wala na. In short, hindi naman masama ang pagtanong ni Mario,” he added.
Jobert earlier said Morissette became upset with Mario’s interview, which prompted her to walkout from the show.
Morissette was one of the guests at Kiel’s birthday concert at the Music Museum last November 6.
Citing the singer’s talent manager David Cosico who informed him that that the singer could no longer perform, Jobert said she felt “she was attacked by the media, by the interview.”
During her interview with Mario, Morissette was initially asked about her thoughts on Kiel.
The singer said she was honored to be a part of the show, adding that she believes in Kiel’s talent.
“Iba iyong passion ni Kiel. He was able to project his gift to everybody. It excites everyone,” she noted.
For his part, Kiel said it was an honor for him to work with “the one and only Ms. Morissette.”
“Sarap niya ka-duet. Sobrang angelic voice talaga,” he said.
Then Morissette was asked for her advice to aspiring singers.
She said, “Never give up and never stop dreaming.”
Later on, Morissette was asked about the status of her relationship with her family.
It can be recalled that Morissette’s father, Amay Amon, publicly expressed his disapproval of her daughter’s relationship with fellow singer Dave Lamar.
Amay said the singer left her family to be with her boyfriend.
He described Dave as “disrespectful” and that he would not allow the latter to destroy his relationship with his daughter.
When asked if everything was fine with her family, Morissette said: “It’s all in the talks naman po. Patuloy ko pa pong pinagdadasal.
“Nili-leave ko na lang po lahat kay Lord. Ever since naman po I was starting, I’ve always felt His hand in my life,” she added.
Morissette also thanked fans who have continued to support her since the controversy broke out.
“I’m very grateful po sa prayers and sa concern and ngayon, nili-leave ko na lang po lahat kay Lord,” she said.
Jobert and David were earlier forced to appear on stage to say that the singer could not perform because of “medical and emergency issues.”
Jobert said he asked David and Morissette to go up on stage to apologize and to let the singer be seen by the audience to prove that he never cheated the show’s ticket buyers on the singer’s planned appearance.
But instead of appearing on the stage with her manager, Morissette hurriedly left the venue.
Jobert maintained that the interview between Mario and Morissette went smoothly.
“Wala ako nakitang problema. Sinagot naman ‘yung mga tanong,” he told the media earlier.
Morissette’s camp has yet to issue a statement regarding the incident.
