Talent manager and broadcaster Ogie Diaz expressed his honest thoughts and opinions when he was asked if ABS-CBN did not prevent their artists who transferred to another network.
In his “Ogie Diaz Showbiz Update” YouTube account, Ogie and Mama Loi talked about the rumors that actor John Lloyd Cruz is going to transfer to GMA-7. The two of them also talked about the appearance of John Lloyd on actor and TV host Willie Revillame’s program.
Later on, Ogie recalled the time when his talent, actress Liza Soberano got an offer from GMA-7.
“So nay kung halimbawang mag decide kayong maging Kapuso. Sa tingin mo papayagan lang kayo ng ABS? Hindi kayo pipigilan?” Mama Loi asked Ogie.
“Pinigilan kami kasi, kahit hindi gawin ng ABS-CBN management na pigilan kami, eh nag decide na kami na hindi kami aalis sa ABS-CBN. Whatever happens. Saka nalang kami aalis pag talagang guhong guho na ang ABS. Ibig sabihin, ‘sige na, we will let you all go’.
Duon palang kami mag iisip ganun. Pero sa totoo lang, talagang naramdaman namin yung pagmamahal ng ABS kay Liza…” Ogie said.
“So ibig sabihin yung ibang mga nawala sa Kapamilya hindi pinigilan?” Mama Loi reacted.
“Hindi ko na alam… Hindi ko na alam… eh diba ni-let go naman yung karamihan.
Kasi siyempre naiintindihan naman ng ABS-CBN na meron din ‘tong pangangailangan, meron din ‘tong mga binabayaran, mga bayarin, may pamilyang binubuhay. Kaya ni-let go…” Ogie shared.
