They are on top of the world.
The TNT Boys has already left their mark on It’s Showtime’s Tawag Ng Tanghalan stage. Afterwards, they introduced themselves in the international scene through Little Big Shot. Now, they are the grand winners of Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids Season 2! And on Tonight with Boy Abunda the trio shared with fans how their journey to fame has been like and how they are shaping the future.
Francis, Mackie and Keifer revealed that they have talked about sticking together. “Pinag-aaralan po namin sa pagsasama po namin na dapat hindi po magtatampo,” Mackie shared. Whether they would become solo artists in the future is a big question for some fans because of their sudden rise to stardom.
If anything, however, this whole experience has only humbled them. When asked how they felt about being famous, “Masaya naman po kasi po once in a lifetime lang,” was Keifer’s response. Mackie added, “Hindi ko po nilalagay sa utak ko po. Sa puso ko po nilalagay para po hindi ako maging malaki ‘yung ulo.” Francis continued, “Kailangan ko pa rin po maging humble . . . at tumulong sa kapwa.”
These are values that are important to them, especially now that people easily notice them wherever they go. There have even been instances when fans would ask for a photo op while they are eating, “Susubo na po kayo tapos ‘Pwede po magpa-picture?’”.
One of the most memorable moments for them was the standing ovation they got during the TNT All-Star Showdown at the Araneta Coliseum. It was a validation that all their hard work has paid off because they were able to touch so many people. “Ako po parang naiiyak na po talaga ko kasi po sobrang ganda po kasi, at saka nakaka-proud rin po,” Keifer expressed.
So, what is next for the TNT Boys? There will be a TNT All-Star Showdown in Cebu on September 21. They will also be touring around the globe and preparing many surprises. “Kayo po ang dahilan kung bakit po kami nanalo at kung bakit po nandito kami sa harapan n’yo,” Mackie thanked everyone who has supported them and continue to do so. “Sana hindi po kayo tumigil sumuporta sa amin hanggang sa dulo,” Francis ended.
