Luis Manzano performed a rap number on Vilma, the former GMA-7 variety show of his mother Vilma Santos.

Luis Manzano showed a flair for showbusiness even at a young age.

On his Instagram account, Luis posted a throwback video of him performing a dance number for the birthday of his mother, Vilma Santos.

In his caption, he wrote: "Anything for the family, and yes, I was a born performer!"

He showcased his rapping skills on Vilma! This is the now defunct variety show that Vilma hosted from 1986 to 1995 on GMA-7.

Luis did freestyle rap that talked about his mother whom he described as "super bait at love ko siyang talaga."

Vilma shed tears upon watching Lucky (nickname of Luis) perform onstage.

At that time, Luis's father, Edu Manzano, was there and he revealed how they planned this surprise.

Luis admitted that he pretended to go to Quad in Makati but he was actually rehearsing for this rap number.

"Sabi niya kasi pupunta siya ng Quad para mag-computer, binibigyan ko siya ng pera pang computer, pang-merienda," recalled Vilma.

Edu said, "Alam niyo, iniiwasan namin si Lucky na mag-perform kasi marami kaming plano sa anak namin pero hindi ko kayang pigilan ang aming anak at gusto niya talagang mag-perform para sa kanyang ina.

"Napaka-swerte po namin at manang-mana ang kanyang pagsasayaw sa kanyang ama."

Vilma retorted, "Correction, sa akin, Eduardo."

In the comments section, Luis jokingly tagged himself as "Asia's king of soul."
