Angel Locsin sounded and looked very emotional as she announced that it is now the final episode of her TV show, ibaYan.
The program, which focuses on the heroic deeds of ordinary Filipinos, has always been a source of inspiration for many.
The program’s director is her own fiancé, Niel Arce.
The actress reminisced that the show came to life at the height of the pandemic, at a time when there are only a few similar programs being shown at the time.
“Nabuo po ang ibaYan sa kasagsagan ng pandemya at sa panahon na iilan lang po ang mga programa na tumatakbo sa buong bansa,” the actress said.
Angel said that while their program is not that big, she hoped that the inspiring stories it shared gave hope to people.
“Maliit lang po ang aming programa at sana sa aming munting paraan, naibahagi po namin ang mga kwentong puno ng inspirasyon,” she said.
The actress then thanked the people who made the program happen.
“Maraming salamat po sa pagkakataon Tita Cory, Direk Lauren, Sir Carlo, Sir Reily, Sir Raymond, Ms. Merce," Angel said. She also thanked the program’s staff and its director, her fiancé, Neil Arce.
“Sa aking fiancè at direktor ng aming programa, @neil_arce, ipinagmamalaki kita! Great job,” Angel said.
Finally, Angel said her goodbyes to the viewers and called on all to continue the “Bayanihan” spirit.
“Ngayong araw man po ang huling episode, ituloy pa rin po natin ang bayanihan spirit,” she ended.
Angelica Locsin Colmenares, better known as Angel Locsin, is a Filipino TV and movie actress, commercial model, film producer, as well as fashion designer. She was born on April 23, 1985 in Santa Maria, Bulacan, Philippines. She rose to fame for her TV role as Alwina in the fantaseries Mulawin, and lateron as superheroine Darna. Angel was with GMA Network up to 2007 until she moved to rival ABS-CBN. She starred as Lyka in the network’s TV series Lobo, earning her an International Emmy Award nomination for her performance. She also appeared in various films like In the Name of Love and One More Try. She gained critical acclaim for her performances in both movies.
About a month ago, Angel organized a community pantry, which later ended in tragedy. Aside from the old man who died while waiting for his turn at the pantry, several others turned up positive for COVID-19. Most of them were from Barangay Holy Spirit in Quezon City where Angel set up her community pantry. As a result, the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CESU) of Quezon City asked those who went to Angel’s community pantry to have themselves tested for the virus.
Even the mayor of Quezon City, Mayor Joy Belmonte, said that they need to contact-trace around 10,000 people. While those who went to Angel’s community pantry did not reach 10K, those who went there might have been in contact with other people, making it necessary for the city to contact-trace that many.
