Ogie Diaz on allegation about celebrities being paid millions to attend political events

The talent manager said that this is somehow not true as some celebrities are campaigning for free for politicians who are their relatives or family members.

Ogie Diaz denied the allegation, which claimed that celebrities are being paid millions for their talent fee to attend political events in a Facebook post on Thursday, February 10.

The talent manager said this is somehow not true as some celebrities are campaigning for free for politicians who are their relatives or family members.



“Di naman masyadong true ito. Hehehe.
Saka hindi naman lahat ng celebrities, nagpapabayad o pera-pera lang.

“Me mga celebrities, pro bono o libre lang basta kaibigan o kamag-anak nila yung kandidato o kahit hindi nila kaanu-ano, basta naniniwala sila sa ipinaglalaban nito, hindi pinag-uusapan ang magkano,” he said.

He also added that other celebrities are willing to spend their own money to help politicians.

He explained, “Kung minsan, dumudukot pa ang mga celebrities sa mga sarili nilang bulsa, dahil walang pondo ang kandidato nila, pero naniniwala sila sa kakayahan at sinseridad nito sa mga tao.

“Yung 100M? Wow! Jackpot ang mga artista pag ganyan. Pero paano mababawi ito?”

To identify someone who was paid a big amount for a political campaign, Diaz said people should check out the facial expression of the endorser.

“Pag ganito, check nyo yung pagmumukha ng endorser pag ikinakampanya niya yung kandidato niya, parang napipilitan lang,” he said.

The comedian then said that a person who truly believes in their political candidate would offer help without asking anything in return.



“Iba pa din pag naniniwala ka sa galing ng kandidato mo, kaya bukal sa loob mo ang pagtulong nang walang kapalit,” he ended.
