- Sharon Cuneta receives a message from President Duterte
- The President calls himself a “good friend” of the Megastar
- The actress-singer is overjoyed and calls it a “precious gift”
Looks like Sharon Cuneta has many reasons to feel overjoyed lately.
After her reunion ad with ex-husband, Gabby Concepcion, went viral, the Megastar received another gift. This time, she received a video message from no less than President Rody Duterte.
The President thanked the singer for her friendship with daughter Sara. Duterte stated, ““Ma’am Sharon, thank you for remembering me. I am your good friend and my daughter Sara ay talagang ina-idolize ka hanggang ngayon and I’m happy that she has chosen the right person to be her inspiration. She has been an avid admirer. Supporter and ako rin, for the many things that you have done for me and my family.”
“I am grateful. Maraming salamat and may you live for a thousand years,” he added.
Sharon couldn’t hide her excitement and chimed that she will “treasure this forever.” The 52-year-old actress calls the President her “Tatay Digong.” She clarified, “All politics aside and with all due respect to my husband who so understands my “wala akong pakialam sa politika” stand. [I don’t care about politics]”
The Megastar went on to talk about her friendship with Sara Duterte. “You may not know this but Davao City Mayor Sarah and I have been friends since 2012. We never cared about each other’s politics,” she said. The Voice coach also offered to sing the President his favorite song, “Ikaw” someday to him.
Lastly, Sharon also thanked her husband, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, “for your understanding and respect for me as your very apolitical/unpolitical wife.”
The President have always been vocal of his appreciation to Sharon despite her husband’s political stand. Last year, Sara Duterte called Sen. Kiko an “opportunist” but clarified that she still respects the senator’s wife, Sharon. She was quoted saying to Inquirer, “I have high respect for Ate Sharon, she has been very kind to me since I was a child.”
You can watch the video greeting from Sharon Cuneta’s Instagram account:
Wow. Thank you very much, Mr. President, Sir, my “Tatay Digong”!!! All politics aside and with all due respect to my husband who so understands my “wala akong pakialam sa politika” stand, I got this precious gift of a message (taken a few evenings ago) from President Rodrigo Duterte himself!!! You may not know this but Davao City Mayor Sarah and I have been friends since 2012. We never cared about each other’s politics, though I adore her as much as she, a “Sharonian” as the President himself once said, must adore me too. I am blessed that she and I are sincere and thoughtful enough to separate politics from what after all is more lasting – our friendship. Now I have this message to treasure forever! ALL POLITICS ASIDE, Excuse me po, pero si Pangulong Duterte po ito! So sorry am not sorry but in fact, am thrilled! Maraming salamat po, Mr. President. Ang yabang ko po ngayon dahil dito! And one day, I shall sing your favorite “IKAW” for you! God bless you po. May our Father in heaven guide you and lead you only to what will make our country great.
