The highly anticipated Kapuso Fans Day with Alden Richards in Iloilo turned out to be a record-breaking success with approximately 50,000 Kapusong Ilonggo in attendance at the Paseo de Iloilo of Robinsons Place Iloilo on Nov. 6.
Pambansang Bae Alden Richards was left in awe after seeing the number of people who came to the show. “Totoo po bang ganito karami? I did not expect this. I’m still so overwhelmed. To each and every one of you, thank you po!”
The undeniable success of Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye” has been an inspiration to many, and with the high hopes of seeing the other half of the AlDub love team in the flesh, the Ilonggo crowd occupied the venue as early as eight in the morning and waited for their own tamang panahon with the Kapuso star.
Despite the show being pushed a bit later in the evening, the unwavering energy of the audience kept the show at its peak. And as soon as Alden took the stage, the audience’s anticipation broke into a display of excitement and celebration for the man of the hour. Alden performed some of the songs from his latest album Wish I May.
GMA’s Head for Regional Strategy and Business Development Division Oliver Amoroso was a witness to what is now regarded as the biggest Kapuso event in the city. “The number of people present during Alden Richards’ Kapuso Fans Day in Iloilo was really unprecedented. But it was definitely a pleasant surprise. We sincerely thank them for their love and support not only to Alden but to the whole GMA Network.”
