DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Rodrigo Duterte’s staunch supporters Aiza Seguerra and wife Liza Diño were called for help by the President-elect to promote arts and culture in the country.
According to ABS-CBN News, Aiza disclosed in a brief interview with Davao reporters what President Duterte asked from them. The singer / artist said:
“..Yun nga yung agenda for arts and culture, he’s asking us for help. So ayun, magpupulong na kami ng mga artist friends so that once we meet up with him meron na kaming nakahandang mga pwedeng gawin.”
[The agenda is arts and culture, he’s asking us for help. We’ll set a meeting with artist friends so that once we meet up with him we can give him plans and proposals.]
Liza, on the other hand, said she’s happy that the President showed interest in working out the arts and culture industry.
“Nakakatuwa kase sya mismo ‘yung nagsalita talaga na nagsabi sa amin na parang ‘Let’s work on arts and culture. Mga Pilipino tayo. You know how much I love this country.”
[It’s nice to hear coming straight from him, he said ‘Let’s work on arts and culture. We’re all Filipino. You know how much I love this country’.]
The couple, who were both self-confessed supporters of the tough-talking mayor, were recently engaged in separate issues associated with President Duterte.
Seguerra, in an article by Kicker Daily on June 8, urged fellow Duterte supporters to not become blind followers and encouraged everyone to be responsible defenders of the president-elect, while Diño shared her opinion on the catcalling issue between the incoming president and GMA News reporter Mariz Umali.
