In the latest celebrity update, Dingdong Dantes renewed his exclusive contract with the network for another five years with the presence of GMA executives led by its chair and CEO Felipe Gozon.
In fact, it Dingdong’s decision and it came from the heart.
“Ang pinakaimportante, throughout the 15 years I’ve been with GMA, they were always there to support me. Nung nag-uumpisa pa lang ako at nangangarap, when I failed at hindi ko alam ang gagawin ko, they were there to support me and my dreams. Beyond just being a company and a network, GMA is my home,” Dingdong said.
Furthermore, the Kapuso star admitted that he even looked for a sign to help him decide which network he would sign up with. The sign came five minutes before his 33rd birthday was over last August 02, 2013.
“Every birthday ko kasi, parating umuulan. For some reason, nung araw na yon, it was clear and sunny. Then, at 11:55 p.m., bumuhos ang ulan. It lasted for five minutes. I felt something,” he explains.
That something, he says, told him to choose GMA’s offer. The new contract contains an increase in his talent fee, a new family drama (“Genesis”), a duty to act as GMA’s ambassador worldwide, and the privilege of having his voice heard in all his projects.
Meanwhile, Dingdong doesn’t know yet, who are the Kapuso stars he will work with again after “Genesis,” but he is sure of a TV special once a year.
“I’m looking at my advocacy, education, as theme,” he said.
