MANILA, Philippines — Young singer Jayda Avanzado remains positive despite the bashing she has recently received, saying it has made her “stronger.”

“I think this is just a bump in the road, it’s an obstacle and it’s part of my journey. It only makes me stronger and I use it as motivation for me to get even better as an artist,” Avanzado told reporters Wednesday during the MYX Music Awards 2019 press conference.


The 15-year-old singer said she knew this would be part of being in the industry: “When I came into this industry, I was aware that this is part of it.”

Despite the ordeal, Avanzado noted the importance of how to deal with these. She said, “I think it’s just learning how to deal with it properly and surrounding yourself with the right people to be able to cope with something like this.”


Singer-actress Jessa Zaragoza-Avanzado, Jayda’s mother, earlier called out her daughter’s bashers who tweeted “Kill that girl.”

“Naisip ko, talagang sumobra-sobra na kayo. Pinagpasensyahan na nga lang namin mag-asawa ‘yung mga kung ano-anong pinapadala nyong direct messages kay Jayda,” Zaragoza wrote on her Instagram post.

Meanwhile, singer Darren Espanto came to her defense with a tweet that read: “Please RESPECT JAYDA and STOP THE HATE.”
