Ogie Diaz gives emotional birthday tribute to Liza Soberano

Showbiz personality and talent manager Ogie Diaz showed his appreciation for Liza Soberano for helping save his daughter’s life back in 2017.

“‘Pag nakikita ko ang mukha ng anak kong si Meerah Khel, hindi pwedeng hindi ko maalala si Liza Soberano. Noon pa, kahit kanino, ipinagmamalaki kong nabuhay ang anak kong premature (25 weeks) — dahil kay Liza,” Ogie said in a Facebook post on Monday, January 4.

He continued, “Halos 30k a day ang gastos ko kay Meerah sa NICU para madugtungan lang ang kanyang buhay. Apat na buwang nakatira sa ospital ang anak ko at lagi, ang kailangan — pera. Gano'n nga yata talaga pag naoospital ka, ‘di pwedeng wala kang pera or else sa case ni Meerah, baka wala na ang anak ko or bulag na siya or may problema sa kanyang immune system. Basta. Ang bait talaga ni Lord. Never Niya akong zinero balance sa bangko. ‘Pag paubos na, may dumarating. O kung wala pang dumarating, handa na akong ibenta isa-isa ang mga naipundar kong properties, mabuhay lang ang anak ko.”

During those times, Ogie felt thankful because almost every week, there were endorsement deals coming in for Liza. He said, “At doon ako sa komisyon humuhugot lagi ng pambayad ng ospital.”

Ogie also admitted that his management contract with Liza will expire next year. He’s hoping to renew their partnership, but in case that doesn’t happen, Ogie will still support the “My Ex and Whys” actress.

He said, “Pero kung sakaling (knock on wood) hindi na mag-renew si Liza? Wa echos 'to, ha? Sobra pa rin ang pasasalamat na bibigkasin ko kay Liza, dahil marami siyang 'kabayanihang' ginawa para sa akin at sa aking pamilya. Lalo na kay Meerah. Pasasalamat. Dahil 'yun ang tama. At 'yun ang laman ng puso ko.”

gie also sent his greeting to Liza, who just turned 23, saying, “Maligayang kaarawan, 'nak. Hangad ko ang kaligayahan ng puso mo kay Enrique Gil, kalusugan mo at alam mo yan — babawi tayo ngayong 2021. At lagi mong tatandaan, anak, nandito lang ako bilang pangalawang tatay mo. Love you, 'nak!”
