Never again will she post a controversial tweet due to not getting paid because singer-comedienne Ethel Bo
oba has collected her talent fee right away after performing at the Tawag ng Tanghalan Celebrity Champions.
October 11, the same day she made a compelling performance hailing her as a winner, Ethel posted on Twitter a video of her holding a pink form believed to be her talent fee for the show.
She disclosed in a PEP interview that after she was called to join TNT, she first settled with the staff about the details of her pay.
“Siyempre, tinanong ko agad ang premyo, yung TF.
“Sabi ko, ‘Ito, magkaliwanagan tayo, ha. Ang TF ba at saka premyo, hiwalay?’” The staff said they will call her back.
And even after she heard judge Dulce’s comments on her singing, she asked in jest, “May premyo to, ‘di ba?”
Ethel became part of the headlines last month after she posted on Twitter her dismay over unpaid TF from 2 TV guestings which she later revealed to be from “Minute to Win It” and “Gandang Gabi Vice”. In Tawag ng Tanghalan, Vice Ganda was also quick to check on Ethel if she was already paid.
“Naayos na ba ng finance?” Vice asked.
“Ok na! Ok na!” Ehtel answered.”
“Wala ho akong kinalaman diyan. Finance po yon ah. Host lang ako. Huwag ninyo kaming pinag-aaway ni Ethel Booba!” Vice quipped.
Ethel was born Ethyl Gabison who started singing at at the young age of 4 in amateur singing contests. She was a winner of ‘Sing Galing!” of ABC 5 where she held her title for four weeks. In her conversation with Vice Ganda on It’s Showtime, we further learned that she has joined “Jessa Zaragoza Sing-alike Contest” and was the grand champion of “Rosalinda Dance and Sing-alike Contest” in ABS CBN.
This certifies that she is undeniably a singing talent aside from being an entertainer.
Here is a clip of her funny conversation with Vice Ganda and Vhong Navarro.
