Negi dismissed rumors indicating that he and Vice Ganda have a "tampuhan."
The comedian reportedly felt bad about being excluded from Vice Ganda's 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival movie entry Fantastica.
During his appearance in the January 10 episode of Tonight With Boy Abunda, Negi explained why he was not part of the MMFF 2018 entry.
"Wala po kaming tampuhan ni Ate Vice, okay po ang relasyon namin. Parang lahat kami sa comedy bar, binibigyan niya ng moment. Tinutulungan niya kami, bawat isa.
"Yung naisama sa movie naranasan ko na po, then sumunod po si Kiray [Wacky Kiray], then si Chokoleit po, kaya nakakatuwa po," said Negi.
"Pero 'pag gumagawa po si ate ng movie, kahit wala po kami ay todo suporta po."
The Gandang Gabi Vice mainstay expressed his gratitude for the ABS-CBN host for helping him since they started out in comedy bars.
"Yes, hindi ko po iniiwan ang GGV, napapanood pa rin nila ako at andoon pa rin po ako sa tabi ni Ate Vice."
