Ogie Alcasid Now Officially A Kapatid As He Signs With TV5Ogie Alcasid has confirmed that he is now officially a Kapatid. This is after the singer, actor and comedian formally signed a contract with TV5.
In a photo posted on Alcasid’s Instagram account, he said, “Thank you for the warm welcome tv5”.
However, that’s not the only thing Alcasid shared through social media.
Using his Twitter account, he sent out tweets on Tuesday asking for support from his friends and fans.
“My friends, I humbly ask you for a prayer as is sign with tv5 this afternoon. Kayo naman lagi ang nariyan and once again I ask 4 yr support,” Alcasid said in a Tweet.
“This new chapter will be full of challenges and i owe it to all of you to do my very best with God as my beacon and guide. Salamat, kapatid,” another tweet read.
It was confirmed last month that Alcasid will be transferring networks when GMA said in a statement posted on GMANetwork.com, “As Ogie Alcasid moves on to explore new grounds, GMA Network, his home for almost two decades, wishes him all the best. We thank him for being a part of the Network's success all these years.”
“His achievements as a singer, songwriter, comedian, host and actor make Ogie the icon that he is now. And the Kapuso Network is proud to have been with him throughout this journey,” the statement continued.
Not that GMA was caught off guard with Alcasid’s decision. Reports say that as early as June, the celebrity talked to GMA management to inform them of his plan.
The singer also said in the past that he formally said goodbye to GMA Network Inc. Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Felipe Gozon and that the executive thanked him for his gesture.
Alcasid, a mainstay of the legendary comedy variety show Bubble Gang, was with the Kapuso Network for 18 years.
