Former ABS-CBN actor-singer Khalil Ramos is now an artist of GMA-7.
Khalil signed a contract with GMA Artist Center today, October 13.
Last week, GMA Artist Center posted a teaser about a new artist joining the Kapuso network’s talent management arm.
The teaser said (published as is), “may bagong Kapuso… malapit niyo nang maKilala.”
Notice that the letter K was made more prominent.
Most netizens made the correct guess, and wrote "Khalil."
Some thought of another Kapamilya singer: Inigo Pascual.
Before the contract-signing, Khalil was last seen in ABS-CBN’s prime-time drama series, Make It With You, as the third wheel to Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil.
The series aired from January 13, 2020 to March 13, 2020.
On March 16, 2020, the series took an airing break because of the declaration of enhanced community quarantine in Luzon.
Eventually, because of the pandemic and ABS_CBN shutdown, the series was canceled with an unfinished storyline.
KHALIL JOINING GIRLFRIEND GABBI GARCIA
Khalil’s girlfriend, Gabbi Garcia, was the first to congratulate and welcome the new Kapuso actor in GMA-7.
Earlier today, October 13, Gabbi posted a message for Khalil on Twitter.
She wrote, “always proud of you, my love!! Welcome to GMA, @TheKhalilRamos”
A month ago, PEP Alerts' Cabinet Files published a blind item about a Kapamilya singer transferring to GMA-7.
One of the clues was that he would transfer to the talent-management agency handling the career of his girlfriend.
Khalil and Gabbi have been dating since 2017, but they went public in 2019.
