Enchong Dee hopes debut album reaches platinum record; wants to hold concert within the year



Before he was recognized as an actor, Enchong Dee dreamed of becoming a musician.

“Mas una ko siyang naging pangarap kaysa sa pagiging artista, sobra,” he said in an interview after the press conference of his upcoming weekly series Wansapanataym Presents: My Kung Fu Chinito last Friday, April 17.

This was the reason the 26-year-old actor did not hesitate to record his self-titled debut album.

Enchong was equally happy to be given a chance to take a break from acting stints.

He told entertainment reporters, “I'm very happy na rin kasi nagkaroon ako ng time na makapag-focus sa album ko, which is very hard for me kasi hindi naman ako nakilala ng mga tao as a recording artist.

“Nae-excite din ako kasi na-tour ko ang Pilipinas, naging baby ko 'yong album.

“It's something na ang tagal-tagal ko nang gustong gawin pero di ko magawa kasi lagi akong nasa set, nagte-taping.

“Nang makapagbakasyon ako, mas nakapag-focus ako roon.”

The 13-track album already reached a gold record award last February, but Enchong wishes it will reach a platinum record plaque as well.

Towards the end of the interview, Enchong said he might do a concert this year in connection with his music album.

“'Yon din kasi ang pangarap ko,” he related.

“Pero ayaw ko naman na para lang masabi na nakapag-concert.

“Gusto ko, kapag pumunta 'yong tao, kapag nagbayad 'yong tao worth their money, worth their time 'yong napanood nila.

“And I want to do something na hindi nila napapanood sa ASAP, mall shows.

“Gusto ko talaga it's worth paying for so, I'm very careful with that concert also.”

Asked where he plans to do a concert, he replied, “Music Museum lang siguro. Ang taas naman ng Araneta!”
