Kiray Celis ‘scammed’ by producer on her Davao show
Former child star Kiray Celis revealed she got scammed by a producer, who allegedly did not show up for a show she was set to perform in, in Mintal, Davao.
Celis expressed via an Instagram post on Sunday that she was so stressed because of the show’s producer. She said she arrived in the area and stayed at a resort, but the producer and his team apparently did not show up.
“Di po sila tumupad sa usapan. Sobrang bastos nila (They were not true to their words, they are really rude),” Celis said. She named the producer, Ronald A. Brigoli, aka Aldong, who she alleged did not even pay the event host.

Silaw na silaw si ate girl sa stress sa producer ng MINTAL DAVAO show ko. Andyan po ako kagabi. Diyan pako nagstay sa MIYAKI RESORT. Nakarating po ako. Di po sila tumupad sa usapan. Sobrang bastos nila. Lalo na sa pagkakilala samin na producer na si “Ronald A. Brigoli” na si ALDONG daw. Di binayaran lahat pati nag host ng event.
Celis also revealed that she was not the only one who got scammed, but also other artists and those who bought tickets to attend the event. “Wow, si Lord na ang bahala sa’yo,” she told the producer in another post.
Not letting things get to her, she still thanked her fans for coming to see her despite the show being canceled. “Hindi man ako nakapag-perform para sa inyo, pero bumawi ako at nag-parade para sa inyo (I may not have performed for you, but I bounced back and did the parade for you),” she said.

Maraming salamat, MINTAL DAVAO. Pasensya na sa nangyari. Hindi man ako nakapag perform para sainyo. Pero bumawi ako at nagparade para sainyo. Isang malaking lesson ang natutunan namin ni mama. At napag alaman namin na ang producer na kumuha samin na si RONALD A BRIGOLI ay hindi lang po ako ang hindi binayaran. Magmula hotel, host at sound system at mga kapwa ko performer at mga artist. Kahit mga bumili ng ticket hindi binalik. Wow! Si Lord na bahala sayo. Thank you sa lahat ng tumulong lalo na sa friends at naging pamilya namin dito sa davao. At sa mga kaibigan kong tumawag, nagtext at nagalala. Maraming salamat po at nalampasan ko itong problema na ito. Btw, salamat @jewels_inc sa outfit ko. 💛
The Facebook page of Barangay Mintal, where Celis was supposed to attend a show held on Saturday, released a statement saying they had nothing to do with the event.
SO THE PUBLIC MAY KNOW: We would like to inform the public that the Mintal Barangay Council or Barangay Mintal for that…
