All-female sing-and-dance group Sexbomb Girls once again reunite on Wednesday, October 25, in the wake of one of Daisy Siete's directors, Ruel Icamen.
Rochelle Pangilinan, the leader of the group, had posted on her Instagram account about the unplanned reunion.
In her post, Pangilinan expresses her happiness upon seeing the members of her former dance group reunite, though she laments the death of the director. According to her, the late director must be happy to see all of them gather together to show their love despite the somber circumstance.
She posted, "DAISYSIETE reunion! ,masaya talaga pagkatapos ng ilang taon ay tayo'y nagkita kita,malungkot lang dahil sa wala na si Direk Roel,ganun pa man alam kong masaya sya dahil nakita nya tayo,at nakita nya na maraming nagmamahal sa kanya!"
(Daisy Siete reunion! , really fun that after a few years, we met again but sad because Director Roel [sic] is gone, yet I know he's happy to see us and to know that he is well-loved!)
Jopay Paguia-Zamora also posted a similar photo on her Instagram account, with a message for the late director, saying "isa ka sa mga direktor na tinitingala ko sa industriya ng showbiz. Maraming salamat direk dahil ang dami kong natutunan syo lalo na pag dating sa pag acting at syempre sa pagiging isang mabuting tao. Ang aming direktor na kalmado lang palagi sa set kumbaga CHILL lang . Paalam Direk Ruel, mamimis ka namin."
(You are one of the directors that I look up to in the entertainment industry. Many thanks, Direk, for everything that I learned from you especially when it comes to acting and of course, in being a good person. Our director who was always calm at the set, just like, consistently CHILL. Goodbye Direk Ruel, we will miss you.)
In yet another Instagram post, Louise Bolton, one of the former Sexbomb Girls-turned-solo artists, posted, "We love you direk ruel"
The Sexbomb Girls popularized several dance albums in the late 90s, before they evolved into multimedia stars, with successful careers in singing, acting, and dancing.
Just like how the Sexbomb Girls would have dance showdowns with other groups or individuals in the past, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his political opponent Raila Odinga, rocked the dance floor.
