Basel Manadil, isiniwalat na naging “Filipino citizen” daw ito mula pa noong 2019: “I am considered Filipino!”
The actor and comedian was the special guest of Aster Amoyo for the Father’s Day special of her online show, TicTALK.
The actor revealed that his father died when Bayani was only three years old and grew up in extreme poverty.
Nevertheless, the actor did not lose focus on his dream to finish school in the hopes of providing a better life for his mother after he graduates.
The comedian took on odd jobs, including being a porter at Divisoria so he could have money to continue going to college.
“Nagkargador ako sa Divisoria, pinag-aral ko sarili ko. Gusto kong mabigyan ng magandang buhay nanay ko bago man lang siya pumanaw,” Bayani revealed.
He says that he was able to finish his course of Mass Communications, though he did not have any photos as Bayani did not have any money to have his picture taken.
“Pag graduate ko, wala akong picture kasi wala naman ako’ng pambayad eh,” he recalled.
The actor revealed he even had to borrow money from a relative just so he could buy something to wear for his graduation day.
After graduation, he did not immediately land on the job he desired and instead, worked as a waiter for almost a year until he got a job as in the Set and Props section of a TV show, where he later became a writer, and eventually discovered as a comedian.
