Vice Ganda told Regine Velasquez that she was his reason for entering the world of entertainment. He made this statement after Asia’s Songbird congratulated him for all his accomplishments.

During his interview with Velasquez on “Gandan Gabi Vice” on Sunday, the talk-show host felt emotional as the singer expressed her admiration for his accomplishments.

“Alam mo, saying that Regine is my idol is an understatement. Hindi ko siya idol, she’s my hero,” he exclaimed.

“Nagsimula ako mag-perform ng dahil sa’yo. Ng dahil sa kanta mo. Nahilig ako sa music ng dahil sa’yo. Natuto ako mag-ipon para bumili ng cassette tape, ng multiplex CD dahil sa’yo.”

(I started to perform because of you. Because of your songs. I got into music because of you. I learned to save money to buy a cassette tape, a multiplex CD because of you.)

Velasquez had been excited to do the interview on “Gandang Gabi Vice” and admitted on the show that she specifically requested it as her first guesting.

“Gusto na maunang mag-guest dito kasi gusto kong sabihin na I’m very proud of you,” said Velasquez.

(I wanted to do my first guesting here (GGV) because I wanted to say that I’m very proud of you.)

Velasquez explained that she had witnessed Vice Ganda perform during his early days in the industry. Having seen his beginnings, she felt that somehow she at least had a small part in his journey to stardom.

Rather than an assumed small part in Vice Ganda’s life, Velasquez turned out to be the very reason why the host was standing in front of the camera with her as a fellow celebrity.

“You gave me the confidence to sing. You gave me someone to emulate. You’re   someone who has been inspiring me ever since. You did then, you still do now that’s why I really really love you. You’re in my heart. I love you more than my boyfriend, promise,” he said.  Alfred Bayle /ra
