Kiray Celis lauds Mygz Molino for taking good care of late comedienne Mahal
As Kiray Celis pays tribute to the late comedienne Mahal, she also praised the latter’s rumored boyfriend, Mygz Molino, for taking good care of her until the end.
“Hello [Ate Noeme] ko! Happy [ka po] diyan kasama ng papa mo?! Sana di kana po nahihirapan diyan [Ate Mahal] ko,” Celis posted on Instagram yesterday, Sept. 2.
(Hello my Ate Noeme! Are you happy over there with your papa?! I hope you are no longer suffering over there my Ate Mahal.)
Mahal, whose real name is Noeme Tesorero, died on Aug. 31 at age 46. She had tested positive for COVID-19 and her death was confirmed by fellow comedienne and close friend Brenda Mage.

Celis’ post aptly came with a photo of her with Mahal and Molino, who are both her co-stars in GMA’s “Owe My Love.”
“At wag rin po natin kalimutan na kamustahin ang family ni ate saka si [Kuya Mygz]. Saksi kaming [‘Owe My Love’] family ni [Ate Mahal]. Kung gaano niya po mahalin, alagaan, bantayan si [Ate Mahal].
(Let us not forget checking in on Ate’s family and Kuya Mygz. Our “Owe My Love” family is witness to how Kuya Mygz loved, took care and looked after Ate Mahal.)
“Sobrang saludo kami kay [Kuya Mygz]. Pagpray po natin si ate, family niya saka po sila [Kuya Mygz]. Salamat po,” Celis added.
(We commend Kuya Mygz very much. Let us pray for Ate Mahal, her family and Kuya Mygz. Thank you.)
Although Molino and Mahal have never confirmed their relationship to the public, fans have long been speculating that the two were dating. Molino often appeared on Mahal’s YouTube vlog.
To end her tribute, Celis disclosed to fans that Mahal played the beloved alien Kokey in the classic Filipino film with Carlo Aquino in 1997.
“[By the way], short trivia po. Naalala ko, sabi ko kay [Ate Mahal] nun. Picture kami tapos yung caption ko, ‘KASAMA KO SI KOKEY!!’ Hehe! Alam niyo ba na siya yung gumanap na unang kokey? Yung movie ni [Aquino]! Cool no?! Hayyyy ate noeme.. sarap balik balikan ng mga masasayang panahon na nakasama ka namin. Mahal na mahal ka namin ate!”
(By the way, just a quick trivia. I remember telling Ate Mahal back then that we should take a photo and I would caption it “I am with Kokey!!” Hehe! Did you know that she played the first Kokey? In the film with Carlo Aquino? Cool, right?! Hay Ate Noeme, it feels so good looking back at our fun times together. We love you very much ate!)
Aside from Celis, many other celebrities have paid tribute to the late comedienne, including Ai-Ai delas Alas, Rosanna Roces and Benjamin Alves, among others. /ra
