“Konting paliwanag lang po, hindi naman ako tinanggal sa ABS-CBN eh, umalis po ako. Nagpaalam ako dun sa management ng maayos at ang sabi po ng management sa akin, alam niyo yan, na kayo ang magpapaliwanag sa mga artist ko.”
Aside from this, Direk Bobet mentioned that if he told his artists he would be leaving, they might follow him as well.
However, Direk Bobet also admitted that he expected the management to explain his departure to his artists.
“For some reason, siguro naman maiintindihan niyo kung sasabihin ko na pag ako lumipat, baka sumama pa sila and you don’t like that. Ayaw ko rin naman yun kaya ipinagbigay tiwala ko sa inyo na kayo na ang magpapaliwanag sa mga artist ko. Ngayon, sinasabi ng artist ko na iniwan ko sila.”
