- The talent manager also revealed that Liza Soberano has been offered large amounts of money to endorse politicians but they have rejected them
Ogie Diaz opened up on social media about the celebrities who campaign for politicians and appear on political ads during election seasons.
According to the popular entertainment reporter / talent manager, celebrities who endorse politicians and join them throughout their campaign are probably getting paid for their services. However, those who appear only a couple of times in campaigns probably did it for free and as a favor.
“Pag once or twice lang nakita sa campaign sorties, baka pwedeng libre lang yon. Pero kung lahat ng entablado, nakasampa ang artista, juice ko, prangkahan na tayo, kailangan din namang mabuhay ng mga artista. Hanapbuhay pa din yan. Peak season ang campaign period. Kitaan yan ng datung, kaya MERONG KITA diyan. At kalakaran na yon,” he wrote.
He also opened up about celebrities who appear on political ads. Ogie said that there are those who did it for a fee and those who did it because they believe in the politician.
“Well, depende yan. Pwedeng malaki bayad, dahil naniniwala yung kandidato na makakahatak ng boto yung artista.
“Pwede din namang pro bono o libre lang yung artista kasi naniniwala siya sa ipinaglalaban ng kandidato. Pero at the end of the day, mas masarap mag-endorso ng kandidatong gusto mo na, kumita ka pa,” he explained…
“Basta nakakatuwa na maraming artista ang kumita ngayong eleksyon. Saka me pulitiko na bang umamin na nagbayad sila ng endorser whether sa political ad o sa pagsama at pagsampa sa stage nila? Puro ang eklay nila diyan, nag-volunteer yung mga artista. O kaya, may friend na ang donation ay yung ipinadalang artista sa campaign. Normal nang rason yon pag may artista— donation lang.
As for Liza Soberano, whose career Ogie manages, he said that they might be more open to it in the future.
“Dami nag-aalok. Laki pa ng offer. Pero siguro, hindi pa sa ngayon. Baka someday or sa next election,” he revealed.
Liza Soberano is a Filipina-American actress who started out as a commercial model before hitting it big in showbiz due to her love team with Enrique Gil. Liza and Enrique have already admitted that they have been a couple for years already.
