We know that they’re friends, but no one really knows just how close Vice Ganda and Daryl Ong really are.
Good thing the “Voice of the Philippines” Season 2 finalist finally told everyone about their friendship on Vice’s birthday special dubbed "YOLO-G" on “Gandang Gabi Vice” last night, March 25.
The singer confessed that he thought the Unkabogable Star was a snob, but of course, he proved himself wrong. "Nung unang pagkakataon na na-meet kita in person, hindi ko alam kung papaano ka ia-approach. Na-star-struck ako sa'yo nung unang beses kitang nakita. 'Di ko alam kung mataray ka ba or what. Pero sobrang thank you kasi nabigyan ako ng chance na maging kaibigan mo,” he said.
Vice started sharing his love for Daryl’s songs and that changed everything. “Sobrang salamat na winelcome mo ko nun nung unang guesting ko sa 'GGV'. 'Yung mga songs ko umingay dahil minahal mo 'yung mga kanta ko.”
From his first “GGV” interview, the two became acquaintances. But the “Ikaw Na Nga” revival hitmaker realized that Vice really is his friend when he got in trouble and Vice immediately showed his support.
He shared, “Last Christmas, naaksidente ako 'di ba? Nabangga 'yung kotseng sinaksakyan ko. Habang tinatahi ako sa ospital, nag-post ako sa social media ng picture. Ikaw 'yung unang tumawag sa'kin. Nung tumawag ka nasa police station kami, nagpapaliwanag kami sa ano'ng nangyari. Pero that moment nakalimutan ko lahat 'yung tahi ko and all. Dun ko na-realize na mahal nga ako ni Vice. Kaya maraming-maraming salamat sa sincere na pagmamahal at friendship na binigay mo sa'kin.”
But what Daryl is most grateful for with this friendship is how it brought him closer to his own child. “Isa sa mga bagay na hindi ko makakalimutan, 'yun 'yung nabigyan ako ng chance makita 'yung anak ko na three years kong hindi nakita dahil sinama mo ko sa show mo sa Los Angeles,” he said.
