In Ogie’s latest showbiz update vlog, posted on Saturday, October 2, the talent manager said, “Ganun naman talaga ang buhay.
“Sabihin man nila na, ‘Sayang naman si Kuya Kim. Nagpahayag pa naman si Kuya Kim na mananatili siyang Kapamilya tapos siya rin ang bumali.’ Eh ganun naman.
“Nag-iiba iba rin naman ang mga desisyun ng mga tao, diba? Hindi naman sa lahat ng pagkakataon eh napapanindigan natin yung una nating sinabi.”
According to Ogie, while ‘Kuya’ Kim might have deviated from his previous statement, it does not mean that his credibility has been lost.
“Hindi naman nakakawala ng credibility kay Kuya Kim,” he said before noting that the reaction of the people towards his transfer was all different.
