Vice Ganda had an extended birthday celebration on “It’s Showtime” yesterday, April 9, and as usual, everything was phenomenal and unkabogable.
He opened the show with an emotional rendition of “Dancing on My Own” and “Believe,” and debuted his brand new hairstyle (paired with a show-stopping outfit of course!).
After the performance, Vice related that his birthday wish is for his continued recovery following his kidney operation last February.
“Ipag-pray niyo ako para okay na ako. Hindi kasi ako makagalaw,” he said.
Of course, all the “It’s Showtime” hosts also gave their heartfelt wishes to the comedian. Here’s what they said:
1. Anne Curtis
“We’re so proud of you and we love you. Nandito ako, Erwan (Heussaff, Anne's husband) and I will always keep our promise na even when you grow old, we’ll take care of you… We’re proud of all the achievements that you’ve done and the whole ‘Showtime’ family is behind you a hundred percent.”
2. Amy Perez
“You are so blessed and I thank the Lord dahil binibigyan ka niya ng good health and we will continue praying for you.”
“To my very own Cardi B, my realest friend, nae-enjoy ko to be your wingman!”
4. Vhong Navarro
“Kami ni Vice, kapag nakita niyo sa TV, puro alaskahan ‘yan, kasi totoo ako sa kanya. Mahal ko ‘yan, kaya ‘yung mga hindi niya naririnig sa iba, ako na ang nagsasabi sa kanya. Walang magsasabi sa kanya nun kundi totoong kaibigan lang naman, at isa na ako doon. Mahal kita, at ayaw kitang nasasaktan.”
5. Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz
“We love you Ate. Kailangan maging healthy ka para sa amin, at sa buong pamilya mo,” Jugs said.
Teddy continued, “Nire-rebuke ko ‘yung hindi ka makakahanap ng partner… naniniwala ako na darating ‘yung araw na mahahanap mo ‘yung perfect partner para sa’yo, at ‘yun ang pinagpe-pray ko sa’yo at good health.”
6. Jhong Hilario
“Natutuwa ako kasi kapag kumakain tayo healthy na, gumagawa ka ng paraan para maging healthy. Kailangan mong alagaan ‘yung sarili mo kasi maraming naghihintay sa’yong tao. Ikaw ‘yung natural medicine ng mga taong may karamdaman. ‘Pag nakikita ka nila, nawawala ‘yung sakit ng katawan nila, ‘yung nararamdaman nila… sumasaya kasi sila. Importante talagang alagaan mo ‘yung sarili mo kasi ang daming hanga sa’yo.”
Vice also received a special video greeting from his family and friends about how he’s an extremely special person not only to them, but to the whole world.
His Nanay Rosario said, “Kahit siya ay may dinaramdam, may mga problema, hindi niya pinpahalata ‘yan lalo na sa kanyang mga fans. Lalo pa siyang nagpapatawa sa iba kaya anak, happy, happy birthday! I’m so proud of you and I love you!”
Vice celebrated his 42nd birthday last March 31.
