Proud to be Pinoy? Nikko Natividad reacts to the recent corruption in the Philippines

Nikko rose to fame after winning ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show It’s Showtime’s Gandang Lalake segment and then later joining #Hashtags.

Hashtag member Nikko Natividad aired his reaction to the recent news of corruption in the country. Top officials of Philippine Health Insurance Corp or PhilHealth allegedly pocketed around P15 billion in funds from the state-run company.

Many also demand to know what President Rodrigo Duterte has done with the P275-billion COVID-19 budget since they are seeking another round of funding.

In a sarcastic tone, Nikko expressed his dismay over the recent happenings in the country.

“Gusto kong ipagsigawan sa mundo na napaka-corrupt ng bansang sinilangan ko. I’m so proud, promise. Walang halong joke. Partida, epidemya pa ‘yan. Pa’no kung ordinary day lang?” he said on Twitter.

In another Tweet, he jokingly said that he would surely have a brighter future as a PhilHealth official than being a celebrity.

He wrote, “Ayoko na pala mag artista mabagal pera. Mag apply nalang akong opisyales sa philhealth sure maaabot ko lahat ng pangarap ko.”

Nikko drew attention and criticisms for airing this statement. Sharing a Tweet of DJ Chacha, Nikko also aired his response to his bashers.

“Saken pa galit mga tao hahaha di naman ako kasabwat,” he joked.

Nikko rose to fame after winning ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show It’s Showtime‘s Gandang Lalake segment and then later joining #Hashtags.



In July 2016, he was selected as one of the housemates of the 7th season of Pinoy Big Brother as a 2-in-1 housemate with McCoy de Leon. During his stay at the PBB House, he admitted that he was already a father to a child out of marriage.
