A crowd of approximately 15,000 in attendance cheered for the Pambansang Bae Alden Richards in the recently concluded Kapuso Fans Day.
This event took place last October 2, Friday, at Gaisano Island Mall Mactan in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.
Alden cannot help but be quite emotional with the warm reception of the Cebuanos. In a release provided by the Corporate Communications department of GMA, the actor was quoted as saying: “I really felt the love of the Cebuanos. I just enjoyed every single moment of being there, seeing the smiles and hearing the cheers of all our Kapuso. Thank you so much for the support.”
Even if his flight was delayed, this didn’t stop the Cebuanos to meet Alden in the flesh making the mall show the most-attended Kapuso Fans Day in Cebu. “Until now I am still in awe at the number of people who went there to join the show and I believe it is by God’s grace that I made it to Cebu to make all our Kapuso happy.”
The other half of the phenomenal AlDub love team visited the Cebuanos to personally thank them for their unwavering support to the Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye,” where the actor shares a split-screen romance with Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza.
The crowd burst with joy when Alden performed special numbers for his fans. He sang his renditions of the songs “Akin Ka na Lang” by The Itchyworms, “Can’t Find No Reason” by Louie Heredia, and the AlDub theme “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran that made the supporters go wild.
The fun didn’t stop as the Cebuanos participated in exciting contests such as “That’s My Bae,” where male participants showcased their twerking dance moves; and “Dubsmash Like Yaya,” where the females acted out like Yaya Dub.
Oliver Amoroso, GMA’s Head for Regional Strategy and Business Development Division, says, “The viewers are always the main drivers of the Network’s success. The success of Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye is traced to the undying support of the Filipinos, including in particular, the Cebuanos. That is why our Kapuso stars, like Alden Richards, will never hesitate to go the extra mile to personally extend their gratitude to the fans, who serve as the Network’s biggest inspiration.”
