KAMI learned that the confession was made during his guesting in “Tonight With Boy Abunda” with Keifer Sanchez and Francis Concepcion.
The topic was brought up when the show’s host asked who among the three famous singers is in a relationship already.

Mackie then confirmed that there are rumors about him having a partner at a young age but he immediately gave an explanation about them.
“Ganito po kasi yun, noong april 1, nag [Instagram] story po ako ng isang letter. Ang sabi ko po, finally po nagka-GF na ako,” he quipped.
“And then yun po, di ko naman po alam na magiging viral na po iyon sa kanila,” he added.
Mackie admitted that many people were quite astonished upon reading his post and they reacted that he is still too young for a relationship, while some got intrigued as to who the lucky girl is.

“April 1 po yun eh. Sa April 1, okay lang po mag-joke o mag-prank ng mga tao… Yun po yung naisip kong ipang prank po sa kanila,” he clarified.
For the sake of assurance, Tito Boy asked Mackie if he really does not have any relationship affiliation now.
The prominent singer confidently affirmed that he is single now and he even reasoned out that he is still young to be in a love affair.
