Asia’s Pop Heartthrob Darren Espanto broke the hearts of his fans months back after disclosing that he returned to his native Canada without any hint of a possible return.
But Darren had since delighted his fans, especially those loyally following him on ASAP Natin ‘To, with his recent return to the Philippines resuming his incredible career as a singer, from his beginnings as a young upstart contestant on The Voice Kids to her present stature as a premier performer.
With his return to ASAP Natin ‘To and part of the wacky bunch of iWant ASAP’s Robi Domingo, Maymay Entrata, and Edward Barber, Darren was pressed to answer why he didn’t visit any of them when came back from Canada, even if their residences were in close proximity.
“Bakit iba ang pinuntahan mo?” asked Robi.
Darren answered, “Alam mo kasi ang una kong pinuntahan, ang una kong pinuntahan guys, si AC (Bonifacio) kasi ever since I got back in March, yun na lang every time. Binabalikan at binabalikan. So ngayon, wala na siyang masasabi.”
Edward further told Darren, “Same building kami ni Maymay, around the corner lang kami,” asking why he did not even bother to say a short hello to them.
But Darren answered in jest: “Hindi ka kasing lambing ni AC,” which led to howls of laughter among the hosts, and Edward suddenly getting offline, as if he was sulking.
Then Robi said that amongst all of them, he was the one who should sulk at them, since it seemed they had forgotten something, thinking the show and the three hosts forgot his birthday.
But in the end, it was all a prank, as they have actually prepared a birthday celebration for Robi on iWant ASAP with greetings from Robi’s family, loved ones, friends and co-artists.
