Manuel "Iboy" Abella won as the BiyaHero of the Day on the noontime show Tuesday, December 3.
During the competition's second round, Iboy performed "What A Wonderful World" while imitating Louie Armstrong's voice.
According to him, if he would request something from his child, it would be understanding and acceptance of who he is.
"Yung maunawaan niya yung pagkatao ko dahil hindi ko po siya nakapiling nung panahon na lumalaki po siya. Ang nagbigay po ng pagmamahal talaga sa kanya (ay) yung aking dating asawa na ngayon ay nag-asawa na rin," he said.
Iboy also acknowledged the care given to his child by his ex-wife's partner.
"Nagpapasalamat din po ako sa nagpalaki sa kanya. Bagama't hindi niya 'yon tunay na tatay, binigay po at nagampanan niya po ‘yung tungkulin bilang isang tatay para sa aking anak," he said.
According to him, he does not need any material thing from his child - just understanding on every angle of what they have been through.
Manuel served as a singer and host in Japan for many years.
