Paolo Contis shared on Instagram the unexpected “inheritance” he received from the late Slapshock frontman Jamir Garcia.
The actor and vlogger said that the motorcycle Honda Ruckus is Jamir’s favorite toy.
Paolo said that several days ago, Jaya Garcia, the wife of Jamir, turned over the motorcycle to him, which he gladly accepted and promised to take care.
He then posted on Instagram a photo of him riding the Honda Ruckus and captioned his post with words filled with gratefulness and friendship.
“This was my kumpare's toy... and now, nasa akin na siya.. thank you @mommy_jaya at sa akin mo ito pinag katiwala. Aalagaan ko to promise!” Paolo wrote in the caption.
Paolo is one of the closest friends of the Slapshock frontman. Jamir is also the godfather of Paolo’s daughter, Summer Ayanna, during her baptism.
“Bro, sayang hindi natin nagawang mag-ride ng magkasama... pakiusap ko lang sana sa 'yo, huwag kang aangkas sa likod ko 'pag gamit ko 'tong motor ha! miss you brotha!” the actor wrote.
Jamir died in November last year, leaving behind three kids with wife, Jaya Garcia.
Paolo Enrico Tusi Contis, or Paolo Contis, is a Filipino actor and comedian of Italian descent who appeared in his acting debut as a child actor in the ABS-CBN show Ang TV. He was born on March 14, 1984. Contis is half-Italian (from his father) and half-Filipino (from his mother). He was a popular child actor where he already appeared in various movies during the mid-1990s. Despite being cast in the popular teleserye Mara Clara, Contis was better known for being part of the kids-oriented program Ang TV and the primetime sitcom Oki Doki Doc. He has won several awards, particularly at the PMPC Star Awards.
Several months ago, Paolo and his partner, LJ Reyes, showed how ingenious they are as parents when it comes to their daughter Summer. The pandemic limited their movement, as well as their time to spend in the park. What they did was to transform their garage into an in-house park so that Summer will be able to play even amid health restrictions. The reaction of Summer when she saw the park was certainly very happy.
More recently, Paolo took the cudgels for LJ after a netizen posted a malicious question for the actress. The netizen asked if why was it that Paolo is no longer featured on the actress's vlogs. The actress did not give an answer nor even a reaction to the question. It was Paolo who addressed the question of the netizen and said that he is just working and busy taking care of his mom.
