In his YouTube channel, showbiz reporter-talent manager-and-sometimes an actor Ogie Diaz revealed that two former ABS-CBN artists have been recruiting current Kapamilya talents to transfer to another Network.
Ogie hinted that some artists would have difficulty in returning to ABS-CBN once the Network’s franchise is renewed.
“Ang alam ko lang sa ABS-CBN, yung katotohanang, pag-nakabalik ang ABS-CBN may mga artistang hindi rin na makakabalik sa ABS kahit gustuhin pa nila,” said Ogie.
Then, Ogie revealed that some former ABS-CBN artists are recruiting current Kapamilya talents to transfer to another network.
“Ayaw ko na mag-mention ng name pero may mga artistang alam nila na hindi sila makakabalik. Katulad ng mga artistang sila pa mismo ang nag-uudyok na lumipat na kung saan sila lumipat,” said Ogie.
Ogie then gave hints to his reveal, indicating the first initials of the said artists.
“Ako feeling ko Letter B, B as in Bravo. Tsaka M, as in Mama,” Ogie revealed.
Then, Ogie shared the scenarios he heard about the alleged recruitment of these former ABS-CBN artists.
“Feeling ko lang ha. Kasi iyon lang din yung naririnig ko na hindi na makakabalik. Because, nag-iimbita pa ng ibang mga artista na nandun na sa ABS, nag-stick with ABS. Tapos sila, “halika na punta na tayo doon,” Ogie pointed.
Finally, Ogie expressed his thoughts over the rumors, noting that the ABS-CBN management has already heard of the alleged recruitment.
“Yun yung mga feeling ko lang hindi na makakabalik or mahihirapang bumalik or matatagalan bago makabalik. At aware sila na hindi sila makakabalik, kasi nga nakarating na top management na nag-iimbita pa sila ng mga nandun sa Kapamilya at iniimbita nilang tumalon sa ibang bakod. Kalungkot no,” said Ogie.
In 2020, ABS-CBN had to shut down after Congress denied their franchise renewal. It led to the network’s decision to retrench its assets, talents, and employees. After that, several Kapamilyas decided to move to other networks to find work.
