Maymay Entrata has truly gone a long way. From being a simple housemate of "Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7," to becoming a promising total performer.
At her "The Dream" concert last Friday, February 23, we were awestruck at how the girl from Cagayan De Oro is now inspiring a lot of lives. So, we took the chance to get testimonials from her celebrity friends who were there at "The Dream" get their thoughts on Maymay's growth.
For her ever-supportive former co-"PBB" housemate Yong Muhajil, Maymay deserves all opportunities because she has always been kind, humble, and innately talented.
"Sobrang proud po ako sa kanya. Kasi sa loob pa lang kami ng 'PBB' napag-uusapan na namin na dream niya talaga makapag-concert," he said.
"Blood Sisters" actor Enchong Dee is amazed at the difference in Maymay's way of performing from the day they first met, as compared to now.
He said, "Kasi the last time we were together, we were in Singapore. It was November. And 'yung performance niya, makikita mo sa mall shows, very for the fans. Pero ngayon, 'yung performance na nakikita ko sa concert niya, not only for the fans. Even if you're not a fan, magugustuhan mo 'yung concert niya because she really gave it all, and she really proved na kaya niyang gumawa ng concert and a sold-out concert."
Cora, a certified big sister to Maymay even when they were still inside Kuya's house, noticed how she bloomed as a woman.
"Kanina lang just before the show nakita ko siya, sabi ko 'Naku Maymay, dalagang-dalaga ka na, this is it, hindi na kayo bagets.' Overwhelming pride pero nakakaaliw din, kasi nakilala ko sila in their pajamas at home, hindi nakaayos ng buhok."
Cora feels like a proud sister not only to Maymay, but also to Edward Barber, her ka-love team and close friend.
"They're not my babies anymore but I'm so proud of them, sobrang excited ako na makita kung saan sila makakapunta."
Meanwhile Marco, who considers both Maymay and Edward his best friends, is truly amazed by the former's charisma.
"Sobrang napabilib mga tao sa kanya. May tao palang talagang destined for this," he said.
"Kami talaga ni Edward... nakikita namin na kahit pagod na pagod na siya, binibigyan pa kami ng saya. Napansin namin ni Edward na hindi lang siya gumanda, nag-mature siya. Habang tumatagal, lalo siyang nagiging supportive sa mga tao sa paligid niya," Marco continued.
Edward, who has been a constant in Maymay's life, couldn't quite put into words how she's changed.
"I see how she's grown in a way I can't explain." He then cited, "Like before, there was a time that she was performing in Vice Ganda's concert, nahirapan [si Maymay] si prod niya. For four days, araw-araw nagpa-practice siya. Nabutas 'yung medyas na, I saw that," he shared.
And from then on, Edward saw that Maymay is gifted with a lot of talent. "Hindi lang siya komedyante eh. Ngayon bawat prod sa concert niya, iba! May rap, may Korean, may English rap."
Without her knowing, Maymay has been making a difference in others' lives, especially to the people close to her. By just being herself, many find her a real inspiration. <3
You do you, Maymay!
