Erik Santos is, without a doubt, among the greatest singers in the local entertainment scene. Ever since his triumphant stint in the ABS-CBN reality singing competition “Star In A Million” in 2003, he has been an omnipresent figure on television for he’s been an ASAP mainstay since then, charming us with his handsome looks and magnificent vocal talent.
Besides, he’s also the voice behind the LSS-inducing and heart-rending anthems of some of our favorite Kapamilya teleseryes and movies, thus, he’s given the moniker “King of Teleserye Theme Songs”.
But for sure, there are people out there who are probably wondering who Erik is every time he’s not on-stage or on-cam. He may not post a lot about her personal life on social media nor talk about it in his interviews, yet we’re able to get a glimpse of how he is as a son and brother to his family in his guesting in Magandang Buhay in 2021, wherein his younger sister Hadiyah surprised him.
“Si kuya po, medyo strict kasi ‘yan sa akin kasi bunso nga po. Pero supportive at napaka-understanding din naman,” she stated when asked how the 39-year-old crooner is as an older brother. He may be protective towards her, yet she’s very thankful for everything that he’s done for her by saying, “Thankful po ako sa kanya sa palaging pag-guide sa akin, sa pagbibigay ng mga advice. Sobra ko pong nararamdaman ‘yong care niya para sa akin.”
Unlike her kuya who posts a lot on Instagram, Hadiyah seems to be not the type who’s into social media as only a few photos can be found on her personal account. Seemingly, she removed her other pictures and replaced it with gorgeous snaps of her taken from her birthday photoshoot and grandiose 18th birthday celebration in February 2022.
However, she left her photos with her Kuya Erik captured during their first performance together in ASAP Natin ‘To in 2019. It can be recalled that they serenaded us with their duet of the Ben&Ben hit “Kathang Isip”, which made us discover that she, too, can sing so well!
With her au naturel splendor and model-like figure, not to mention her impressive singing talent, we look forward to see if she’s going to follow the path of her kuya in the industry, or if she’s going to veer on a different direction. Way to go, Hadiyah!
