A photo of the popular singer known for his masa songs such as “Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin” wearing a Duterte baller has been doing the rounds online.
In an Instagram post, a netizen hiding behind the handle duterteismypresident2016 published the photo of April Boy Regino wearing the blue and red Duterte baller.
The singer might not be popular to the millennials of today but in the 1990’s, April Boy Regino was once one of the most popular OPM singers.
His songs were so popular among the masa crowd that Mr. Regino’s songs such as “Paano Ang Puso Ko”, “Umiiyak Ang Puso” and “Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin” dominated the videoke scene, proof of his popularity in those days.
Judging by the photo, it appears that the popular OPM singer of the 90’s was performing on stage during one of Mayor Duterte’s campaign rally.
The unspoken endorsement of Mr. April Boy Regino for Duterte’s candidacy for free is a testimony to the drawing power of Mayor Duterte in attracting celebrities to his fold without spending any cash because these celebrities offered their services for free.
This is a complete opposite of the experiences of Duterte’s rivals who have to pay millions just to get the endorsement celebrities for their candidacy.
For the past few weeks, April Boy Regino has been the subject of speculation in Facebook groups identified with Mayor Duterte as a supporter but no solid proof has been put forward to establish the rumor as a fact, until today.
It can be recalled that Mar Roxas was the subject of gossips in the social media after getting the endorsement of Daniel Padilla and Katryn Bernardo and getting them to appear on Roxas’s campaign ad.
Allegedly, the above-mentioned celebrities of ABS-CBN were rumored to have received 60 million each to grace the campaign sorties of Mar Roxas in the provinces.
