Singer-songwriter Juan Karlos Labajo has now decided to stop looking for his biological father after years of searching.
The Awit Award for Best Male Performance winner broke the news of his loss in searching for his long-lost father on his Instagram page.
In a series of Instagram stories, Labajo started narrating his years of searching, and it wasn’t easy as everyone thought.
“I have been looking for my father for years now and I have tried everything possible to look for him. It’s not as simple as a Facebook search.”
Labajo said he learned that his father’s name is Oliver Stolz and he is apparently from Munich, Germany.
“Years ago, natulungan ako ni kuya bonnie ko na mahanap ang number ng tatay ko. We have been trying to reach out to him but got no response,” he said.
While this was the case, Labajo said he learned that his father made a WhatsApp account around November last year, so he tried to send him messages. However, Labajo realized his father didn’t want to communicate with him.
“My father blocked me.”
“I guess he has a family now and he definitely doesn’t want me to be a part of it.”
JK deleted all his previous posts on his Instagram account about his missing biological father, Oliver Stolz.
Since he was still a baby when his father left them, he has never met his father. He lost his mother to cancer at an early age, which is why his maternal grandmother raised him.
Labajo soared to fame when he auditioned The Voice Kids (Philippines Season 1) on ABS-CBN. He had longed for the love of his father back then.
JK explained what for him was the most painful part of growing up without a father.
“Ang pinakamasakit lang para sa akin ay yung wala siya sa mga panahong sobrang kinailangan siya ng nanay ko. Hanggang sa huli niyang hingalo, hindi man lang siya nagpakita,” he said.
