A lot of fans have been wondering: When is Sarah Geronimo going to return on “ASAP Natin ‘To”?
The musical variety show just marked a historical premiere on TV5 last Sunday, January 24, and the Popstar Royalty’s absence was again put in question.
In an interview with ABS-CBN Entertainment, one of the program’s main stars, Regine Velasquez, admitted that she also hasn’t seen Sarah in a while.
“I haven’t been seeing her. I miss her a lot. She hasn’t been doing ‘ASAP,’” said the Asia’s Songbird.
When asked about the “Tala” hitmaker’s reason for opting out from doing live performances, Regine answered, “I’m sure may maganda naman siyang reason for not doing ‘ASAP.’ But a lot of people are missing her. Ang kaniyang mga Popsters miss her very, very much.”
She added, “Sigurado naman akong miss din niya kami. I’m sure nami-miss din niyang mag-perform. I’m sure nami-miss din niya ang kaniyan Popsters. Let’s all pray that she’ll be able to do ‘ASAP’ again.”
Regine and Sarah maintain a close relationship that began all the way back in 2003 when the latter joined and won Regine’s reality singing contest “Star for a Night”.
“I would always talk to her and encourage her and give her advice, but I don’t impose. I only give my advice when she asks for it,” Regine shared.
“I do have a good relationship with her. We text,” she continued. “Minsan, out of the blue, kahit noong wala pang pandemic, bigla na lang ‘yang mag-te-text sa akin. ‘Miss Reg, puwede ba kitang dalawin? Puwede ba tayong mag-usap?’ Ganiyan siya sa akin. Ako naman, ‘Sige, go, tara mag-usap tayo.’”
Regine is gearing up for her upcoming virtual Valentine’s concert “Freedom”, which will be streaming worldwide on ktx.ph, iWanttFC, and TFC IPTV (February 14 at 8pm Manila time).
