However, the comedian recently shared a serious post on his social media account.
KAMI learned that the post was about 39-year-old Henry Leonardo, a taho vendor who Nico often meets during his morning exercise.
In Nico’s post, he also shared that smiles are one of the strongest weapons that Filipinos have, “SERIOUS POST ALERT Meet Henry Leonardo, 39 years old, he wakes up every day at 4 am, commutes 2 hours and arrives in our village by 6 am. He walks with his Tajo equipment all over the village for 6 hours, he does this to provide for his wife and 2 kids since 1998. Every time I run in the village, or walk #Pochola, I see him, and every time I see him, he always gives me a massive smile and a happy good morning, he also greets Pochi if she is with me!
“This is one of many stories of Filipinos that are fighting every day, doing long commutes and sacrificing a lot of time with their families to be able to provide or fulfill their dreams, and they all have a common factor: they all smile. I have been in the country for 8 years already and I can tell that the smile is the strongest Filipino weapon, it is something that never stops to amaze me, how most of the Filipinos irradiate happiness not matter what!
“We are always looking for people to motivate us, inspire us, we are always looking up to idols; in my view, life is about discipline, hard work, perseverance, honesty and love; and we can find that in most of the people around us, Henry is just one example of all that, but there are many. I encourage you to just look around, be aware of that and return that smile, maybe you are one of these examples! If that is the case, this post is to encourage and celebrate you! The capability to smile no matter the circumstances is what makes this country invincible. There is only one idol in this picture, and it is definitely not me. #TheRealIdols."
Nico’s post about Manong Henry garnered positive comments from netizens and celebrities on social media.
“Very humbling indeed! He’s the perfect definition of a hard working person! Much respect to Kuya Henry!”
“Nico you really are a good man to notice these things.”
“This is wonderful! And those tahos are really heavy!Just imagine them walking around carrying those two buckets for 6 hrs! Salute to them!”
“Wonderful post Nico. Love it!”
“This made me cry not because of the story but because it was narrated by a foreigner who sees a filipino soul. And thats just one of the many filipino great stories.”
