Here is the reason why Ogie Alcasid is no longer the host of “Little Big Shots”, the Filipino version.
OGIE ALCASID – Veteran OPM singer Ogie Alcasid will no longer do the hosting of the Filipino version of ‘Little Big Shots’.
According to the news report released by the Philippine Entertainment Portal, prior to Billy Crawford, Ogie is the first choice of the network to do the hosting of the hit international show “Little Big Show” but on Pinoy version.
However, the company that owned the franchise of the said show wanted Billy.
“Ako ‘yung pinu-push ng ABS. I think the company that owns the franchise wanted to see me, I think because baka bago lang din ako dito and because they know Billy obviously because he is an international star and I’ve see him, dami na niyang hinost, so they wanted to see me. So na-feel nong may-ari nong franchise na si Billy talaga. Eh sila may-ari siyempre sila masusunod. Na-appreciate ko naman sa mga boss natin sa ABS-CBN they were very supportive of me, they were very honest,” the singer has indicated.
The singer stated, “I guess siguro nagdamdam si Regine siguro for me dahil gusto niya sa akin ‘yun but like I always say di ba, meron nababagay sa’yo, meron hindi, di ba? And thinking now ‘yung schedule ko hindi ko na yata magagawa and I am so happy that Billy is able to get it and I am very proud of him.”
Nevertheless, Ogie has already accepted it and truly understands that it is a part of the business.
He even showed his support to Billy that he even said, “I am just thankful to ABS-CBN that they even considered me, that I was even given the opportunity to do the mock shoot and I am so happy that it went to Billy. I’m very proud of him. Obviously he deserves more than I do and I even texted him and sabi ko ‘Pare I am one hundred percent with you all the way’ and I wish him all the success for it.”
