Actor, singer, model, content creator, and businessman Richard Yap is now officially a Kapuso as he signed his management contract with GMA Artist Center (GMAAC) on Dec. 16.
Present during the contract signing were GMA Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMAAC Assistant Vice President and Head for Talent Imaging and Marketing Unit Simoun Ferrer, GMAAC Senior Talent Manager Joy Marcelo, and Richard’s co-manager Kate Valenzuela.
Richard expressed his gratitude for the warm welcome, “I’m actually quite overwhelmed as I never thought this would come about. Now that it’s finally here, I am just so happy and so thankful to become a part of the Kapuso family.”
He also teased his fans for a much-anticipated comeback on TV. As he begins his Kapuso journey, he will be starring in an episode of the well-loved comedy anthology Dear Uge Presents, in the late-night comedy-variety program The Boobay and Tekla Show soon. He is also set to top-bill an upcoming primetime series next year.
He also promised the audience that they can expect a lot from him in his new home, “Expect the unexpected? I guess you can expect me to try and experiment into other genres other than the ones that I’ve done before.”
Richard added that he is eager to work with various Kapuso stars including Marian Rivera, Heart Evangelista, Solenn Heusaff, Andrea Torres, his good friend Jean Garcia, and Michael V.
