“Magtataka yung mga fans mo kung bakit binenta yun ni Lyca,” Karen said in the video.
The Voice Kids Ph champion said that while she had many memories with that new house, she has to sell it in order to be with her grandmother.
“Yung bahay naman po na yun pinahalagahan ko naman po siyang talaga. Marami po akong memories na binuo dun sa house na yun and para po kay lola kasi gusto niya kaming makasama kasi di nya po gustong malayo po kami,” Lyca explained.
Lyca said that she did bring her grandmother to that house but she went home to her old place as she cannot stand the silence.
“Dinala po namin siya sa house po na yun kaso umuwi. Ayaw daw po talaga niya doon kasi ang tahimik daw po,” the singer continued.
To settle the issue, Lyca just sold the new house and bought one located in the place where she grew up.
She also made some renovations to the house to make it more becoming.

Lyca Jane Epe Gairanod, better known as Lyca Gairanod, is a Pinay singer and actress. She was born on November 21, 2004 in Tanza, Cavite where her father worked as a fisherman while her mother scavenged for old newspapers and used bottles with Lyca helping her when she grew a bit older.
