“So why Ice? First of all, di naman talaga malayo kasi Aiza. And since I was in high school, nickname ko na ‘yung Ice. So my closest friends, they call me Ice. They don’t call me Aiza. Kasi Aiza for me, napaka parang it’s very di na siya personal kasi showbiz ‘yungAiza. Parang ganun. Although nickname ko siya talaga pero since ‘yung ginagamit ko siya for work parang ‘di siya personal masyado. That’s why ever since ‘yun ‘yung tawag sakin ng barkada ko – Ice. So nilabas ko lang sa iba,” Ice explained.
