Viva Films’ newest comedy offering Sanggano, Sanggago’t Sanggwapo held a media conference last Tuesday, August 20, at The Music Hall in Metrowalk, Pasig City. Present during the conference were lead stars Dennis Padilla, Janno Gibbs, and Andrew E.
After the full cast Q&A, rapper-comedian Andrew E., who was a musical sensation in the 90s, sat down with some members of the press and candidly told them about how he felt when he realized his career has dwindled down.
“2004, mga kaibigan, doon na ko naniwala na wala ng Andrew E. name. Wala ng magic ’yong Andrew E. name,” the rapper-actor revealed. “Pero limited ’yong paniniwala ko na hindi pa rin nawawala ’yong talento ko. ’Yong magic lang ba ’yong tinutukoy ko na Andrew E. magic. Doon ako naniwala na naglaho ’yong magic.”
He then stated that if you revisit the previous years, you get to discover that he was no longer visible in the limelight, which made him think about his life with the possibility of him losing his showbiz career, especially with a family in tow.
“Ano ’yong pwede kong gawin?” he recalled asking himself. “That 2004, doon ako na-inlove ulit sa aking dating love. At ang dating love ko ay ang pagiging BSCS (Bachelor of Science in Computer Science) ko. Lingid sa kaalaman ng tao, bago ako naging artista, naging BSCS ako. Although, hindi ako graduate but BSCS ang linya ko.
“Kailangan gumawa ako ng something for my family na hindi na sa showbiz pero linya naman nito, para naman mag-equate pagdating ng araw...mapakinabangan ko kung magtutuloy-tuloy ’tong pananamlay.”
Yet, Andrew E. is back now with a brand new comedy film! Sanggano, Sanggago’t Sanggwapo, which will premier in cinemas on September 4!
