- Bong Revilla got a warm welcome from the audience during the campaign event of Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP)
- The crowd went wild when the former senator entered the stage
- Revilla sang “Ikaw” with his wife, Lani Mercado, during the event
Former Senator Bong Revilla made quite an entrance during the initial campaign event of Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) in Pampanga. KAMI learned that the crowd went wild when Revilla appeared on stage.
Through a video posted by Rappler on Twitter, it can be seen that the audience started screaming and cheering when Revilla made his entrance.
Revilla did not expect that he would be receiving a warm welcome from the audience since he was detained in jail for more than four years.
“I was gone for 4 years and 6 months. I thought you don’t love me anymore. I thought you won’t scream for me anymore,” Revilla said as reported by ABS-CBN News.
“It’s as if all the hardships I had endured inside detention are now gone,” he added.
During the campaign event, Revilla sang “Ikaw” with his wife, Lani Mercado. The song was known as the favorite piece of President Rodrigo Duterte.
In a report by KAMI before, the Sandiganbayan cleared Revilla of his plunder case with regard to the ‘pork barrel scam’. He was accused of kickbacking P224.5 million worth of pork barrel or Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).
Born on September 25, 1966, Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. is an actor-turned-politician. He is popularly known for his films like “Alyas Pogi: Birador ng Nueva Ecijac”, “Pepeng Agimat”, “Ang Panday”, and “Captain Barbell”.
