Sandro Marcos has finally broken his silence with regard to rumors surfacing that he and singer Charice Pempengco look identical.
The eldest son of Senator Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. was all good vibes when he finally sent his reaction via Twitter about the public commenting that he looks a lot like singer Charice.
Sandro replied on one of Charice's Twitter posts promoting the latest issue of Mega Man, where she appears on the cover. The reply by Sandro was much awaited by both fans of Charice and Sandro as well as haters of the two individuals.
"So apparently we look alike!" Sandro wrote, tagging Charice's Twitter account. "More respect and more success to you."
During a press conference held last week, Charice has already voiced out that she is not bothered at all by the comparisons. She even said that she is more afraid that the issue might bother Sandro and the Marcos family more.
Charice also admitted that she herself has noticed their similarities long before the issue broke out. The singer narrated that she first noticed their similarities when they went to Vigan for a vacation and visited historical places about former president Marcos.
"So when I saw all these comments about Sandro, I knew it was coming…. I don't mind, I don't care. Alam naman natin ang mga Pinoy, the first thing they will do is compare you sa kung sino ang kamukha mo (As Pinoys, the first thing they will do is compare you to someone who looks just like you)," she added.
The younger Marcos caught the attention not only of the media but also of the netizens during the campaign period where he was actively promoting his father for vice president. He, together with the sons of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte and presidential candidates Grace Poe and Vice-President Jejomar Binay, were the subject of many social media posts.
Charice, on the other hand, is dubbed as one of the best singers in the country. She was also labelled by Oprah Winfrey as the "Most Talented Girl in the World." She, a few years ago, also admitted that she is a lesbian.
