Any achievement of a child can also be considered as an achievement of the parents. This is exactly how OPM singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid felt when his 20-year-old daughter Leila Alcasid recently released a track named “Completely in Love”.
In a report by PUSH, the proud father narrated how his daughter worked hard for her latest single. He also shared the achievement of the song, saying it claimed the 6th spot on Spotify Viral.
“Nakikita ko na nagi-enjoy siya. Nakikita ko na pursigido ‘yung bata, very passionate din. Like sa music videos niya, meron siyang sariling concept sa paggawa ng kanta niya, meron siyang sariling idea how it is going to be arranged, how it is going to sound like so hindi ako nakialam.”
“Sabi ko: This is your craft, you do it. I will just guide you. So I am not surprised na maganda ang kinalabasan nung song niya. For a newbie nag-number 6 siya sa Spotify Viral and that’s a big thing.”
On the other topic, Ogie Alcasid also supports his daughter’s showbiz career. Leila recently became part of 2018 Star Magic Circle. According to him, he’s okay with Leila Alcasid having a love-team.
”Wala namang problema sa akin. Gusto ko lang sana matuto siyang mag-Tagalog. Although she has been steadily learning, kailangan mas hasa pa ang kanyang pananagalog.
“Although una naman siyang nakikilala bilang singer and nasa kanya ‘yun if mamahalin niya ‘yung pag-arte. Kailangan pursigido siya, ang daming magagaling diyan di ba?”
However, when he was asked if he’s cool seeing his daughter kissing a guy on-screen, he said:
“Parang ayaw ko pero I don’t know. I think it’s all a matter of looking at a project. She has a very wholesome image. As you can see her values are very wholesome, her attitude towards life is very wholesome.”
“She’s all about kindness and loving yourself, loving God, parang dapat naman bumagay sa ganon. It depends, I think there is a kind of kiss that can look cute and tender.”
