We miss the Potato Squad! One of the most beloved showbiz cliques that we all wanted to be part of is the Potato Squad composed of AC Bonifacio, Kyle Echarri, Darren Espanto, and Ylona Garcia, Although there hasn’t been much sightings of them as a group lately, we still appreciate how the quartet showed us some real ‘barkada’ goals.
Promoting her song “Sumayaw, Sumaya” in a past episode of Tonight with Boy Abunda in 2018, AC was asked about her closeness with the gang, especially with Kyle, whom fans shipped her with.
But according to AC, they all treat Kyle as the ‘bunso’ of the group. She treats him as a little brother as he looks at Darren as ‘Kuya,’ and Ylona as her ‘Ate.’ Fans may have just assumed something romantic because they’ve known each other before the barkada was formed.
“I can say na we met first pero we all know with each other how we treat each other. He’s the bunso of the squad, he’s 14. We treat each other like siblings. We’re all there for each other when we need each other,” explained then-15-year-old AC.
AC capped off the episode with a short but powerful performance of her music video “Sumayaw, Sumaya.”
This year, AC will be starring in the musical series “Lyric and Beat” with Darren Espanto, Jeremy G, Angela Ken, and Sheena Belarmino.
