The comedienne then reminded everyone to be on guard against politicians who pay artists to perform in campaign rallies.
She said such politicians might just get a return on their investment through the sweat of ordinary citizens.
“Tandaan nyo lahat ng binayad ng kandidato nyo sa mga artistang yan ay babawiin din yan sa sarili nyong pawis!ano uto?” the comedienne said.
Pokwang then asked netizens a general question on their opinion whether the politician would just release a huge amount of money without something in return.

She revealed that they did house to house campaign and said that the people accepted them as who they are. The comedienne also revealed that she felt that it is only on social media where people are angry at them but in real life, they are very much accepted.
