During Ogie Diaz’s recent interview on “Magandang Buhay,” the manager revealed that he was asked by Karla Estrada to manage Daniel Padilla before he became famous.
KAMI learned about Ogie’s story from ABS-CBN Entertainment.
According to Ogie, Karla asked him to manage Daniel in a bar.
He explained that he was not able to fully appreciate Daniel’s looks because it was very dark in the bar.
“Ito, may ikukwento ako sa inyo, trivia. Alam mo ba, merong isang nanay na lumapit sa’kin. Sabi niya sa’kin, ‘I-manage mo naman itong anak ko.’
“Eh, nagkakita kami sa bar. Eh, madilim yung bar. Eh, yung anak niya andun kasama niya. Tapos, ano, ‘uy, si tito Ogie mo, oh… I-manage mo yung anak ko.
“So, nung araw na yun, payat na payat yun. Eh, madilim. Hindi ko masyadong namukhaan. “
Ogie addie that he did not say “yes” to Karla because he was not yet a full-fledged manager in showbiz at that time.
“So, nung time nay un. Sabi ko, ‘Sandali, mare, at meron akong mga minamange pa tapos gulung-gulo pa yung isip ko kasi hindi pa ako full pleged na manager.
“Baka sabihin, ‘masyadong mataas ang expectation sa akin.’”
When they met again, Ogie told Karla that he was not upset that he decided not to manage Daniel after seeing him become a superstar.
“So, nung magkita ulit kami ng nanay. Sabi sakin ng nanay, ‘Tingnan mo na, sabi ko sa’yo diba? Sa’yo ko inaalok ito. Dapat ikaw ngayon ang manager niyan.’
“Sabi ko sa kaniya, ‘Alam mo, mare, nakaguhit yan sa palad niya na siya ay sisikat kahit wala ako. Kung andiyan ako, hindi ko naman alam kung ganun pa rin ba ka-intense yung kasikatan ng bata.’ Yan ay si DJ, si Daniel Padilla…”
