Willie Revillame was a sidekick of Randy Santiago
Kuya Wil has been always open about his humble beginning in the entertainment industry, just like the story he shared in the recent episode of his Kapuso game show.
Randy, who popularized the songs Babaero in 1987 and Hindi Magbabago in 1994, visited the Wowowin: Tutok To Win studio for its February 16 episode.
“Dito kami nagsimula Direk, ha, sa studio dun sa likod.” Willie Revillame said to Direk Bobot Mortiz who is now part of the Kapuso show. Kuya Wil also shared this story in 1987 to his co-host beauty queen Michele Gumabao. “Dito kami nagsimula, Michele. Sa Lunch Date. Kinuha niya akong sidekick niya.” He said.
Kuya Wil also shared that in 1984, Randy commissioned him as drummer for the singer’s gig in Singapore, based on the article in PEP. They spent 4 months in the said country and because of that, their friendship bloomed.
When they went back to the Philippines, they went separately when it comes to their careers. Then, the time came when Randy and Willie met again with the former’s co-host back then, Toni Rose Gayda.
Randy invited Willie to visit their studio in GMA. When the Wowowin host arrived, the singer-host immediately told him to wear “sando”.
“Ano gagawin ko? ‘Basta sumama ka.’ Tinulak ako sa lahat ng… maliit lang yung ano [studio ng] Lunch Date, e. ‘Tinulak, ako, bakit?’ ‘Basta bubugbugin ka nila.’ Binugbog ako tapos biglang uusok, hinila ako palabas. Eto, super showman, siya ang bida.” Kuya Wil shared and that was the time he started as the sidekick of the singer-host.
“Kita mo naman ngayon, e, Willie Revillame na,” Randy Santiago said commending the hard work of the Kapuso host.
