After the success of the Primetime teleserye "Toda One I Love," Kapuso's so-called Action-Drama Prince Ruru Madrid returned. But this time, he is set to dominate the music scene! Ruru launched his newest single, "Nawawala."

Friday afternoon of August 16, simultaneously,  the official music video of the said song was live streamed in YouTube and in Facebook. An exclusive solo media conference of Ruru then followed where the actor-singer answered interesting questions from the bloggers, vloggers, and media/press people.

According to Ruru, he got a stream of emotions upon hearing the musical arrangement. He shared that there is a lesson behind the lyrics. "The first time na binigay nila sa akin ito, nagulat ako talaga. Ang ganda at damang-dama. Everytime na may ginagawa tayo sa buhay natin, i-apply natin 'yung mga natutunan natin sa past."

Ruru attributes his early musical influence to his dad who used to be a member of a band when he was young. He had previous recordings including "Let the Love Begin," the theme song of the GMA Primetime series with the same title and "Sa Yakap Mo" for the primetime soap "Sherlock Jr.," both in duet with Kapuso actress Gabbi Garcia. Hence, their loveteam called GabRu  was born.

On our interview with Ruru, he shared the story why they came up with that kind of song. He even revealed the idea behind its music video. In addition, the actor further shared his showbiz plans such as doing more albums, writing new songs, having a concert, and doing a movie in the rival network like what Alden Richards did via "Hello Love Goodbye." And guess who's Kapamilya leading ladies Ruru wants to be paired with if that new movie collaboration takes place? Yeah, they're no other than Bea Alonzo and Liza Soberano!

Here is our full live video coverage of Ruru's exclusive interview:

Meanwhile, here is the official music video of "Nawawala" featuring Ruru Madrid:

"Nawawala" music video is directed by Miggy Tanchanco featuring the Kapuso star Kelley Day. The song is composed by Kettle Mata, Roger Alcantara and Enzo Villegas. It is described as emotional expressing 'hugot' which gives Filipino listeners delight in today's music scene.

Once more, congrats Ruru for this new project - a new single "Nawawala" which will truly captivate our hopelessly romantic hearts! The song is now available in different music platforms such as in Spotify and in Apple Music! 08/17/2019 (TV Series Craze)

Two of today's controversial actresses Bea Alonzo and Angel Locsin made a cameo appearance in the hit Kapamilya afternoon teleserye "Kadenang Ginto." Their appearances eventually turned trending topics in Social Media. Netizens were really excited to know if what twist in the story their characters will bring.

The Angel Locsin cameo took place on the Thursday, August 8 episode of the series. In the hospital where Romina (Beauty Gonzales) and Daniela (Dimples Romana) were having commotion, Angel (who seems carrying the character of Rhian Bonifacio) was supposed to enter the room. But she eventually left after having an eye-to-eye with the policeman.

Here is the said Angel's cameo:

On the other hand, Bea had her  cameo weeks ago during the Fish Expo episode. She bumped into Daniela while walking in the said event.

Here is Bea's appearance:

As for Bea, she is visiting the set of "Kadenang Gintio" and they had fun to enter the show for just a second appearance. While for Angel, she is the bestfriend of Dimples and definitely she's visiting her.

Now the question goes, who's next after Bea and Angel? Netizens and viewers thought that they can be Toni Gonzaga and Shaina Magdayao to complete the Salazar sisters of "Four Sisters and a Wedding." Others guess it can be Angelica Panganiban  to complete the Bea-Angel-Angelica friendship squad. But some made a wild guess of Julia Barretto!

Tanghalang Pilipino continues to charge on with its crusade to provide its audience with productions that reflect the times and show love for our Inang Bayan (country), who is battling different kinds of political, social, cultural and environmental wars today.

One of Tanghalang Pilipino’s highly acclaimed musical productions is such a play, and it gets even better now that it is on its fourth run with theater veteran Monique Wilson joins Mabining Mandirigma as the lead titular character. Mabining Mandirigma, the musical about Apolinario Mabini’s life, was first staged in July 2015 and last staged in December 2016 and has already enjoyed three successful runs.

Mabining Mandirigma was also the recipient of 12 Gawad Buhay Awards including Outstanding Musical award in the 8th Philstage Gawad Buhay in 2016. 

Mabining Mandirigma is helmed by CCP’s Vice President and Artistic Director Chris Millado as director, Joed Balsamo as composer, and multi-awarded Ejay Yatco joins as Musical Director. This run is a tribute to the late fashion and costume designer James Reyes, who won Outstanding Costume Design in 2015.

Young tenors Arman Ferrer and David Ezra alternately play Emilio Aguinaldo, while Hazel Maranan returns as an understudy to Monique Wilson.

This production serves as Tanghalang Pilipino’s 33rd Season opener and CCP 50th Anniversary offering, and will be staged from August 16 to September 1, 2019 at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater).


Fresh from her directorial success of the highly acclaimed One Billion Rising, Monique Wilson goes back to her acting roots as she plays one of the most prolific Filipino heroes, Apolinario Mabini. Monique shares, “It is a fullfillment of a life's dream to be part of an innovative, dynamic, progressive, radically creative and deeply revolutionary musical.

This excites me more than anything because we need artistic works like these in these politically and socially perilous times, more than ever before. I am hugely honored to be invited by Tanghalang Pilipino to play the role of Mabini, and to be working with the best and most radical creative artists in the country.”

With a season theme that calls us to fight, strive, and for national sovereignty, for equality, justice and human rights, for the preservation of our cultural heritage, and for the protection of children against exploitation, abuses and bigotry, Tanghalang Pilipino’s season opener is one that Monique feels motivated doing:

“It is not only the deepest honor, but the most profound duty, to be called to do what we can contribute to creative resistance and to the awakening of political and social consciousness through art and theater, and to keep forwarding the revolution we are still fighting against imperialists and colonizers today, in 2019. The war waging inside minds and hearts, as well as in the streets, inside congress and in the countrysides are still going on today; and we need radical, tranformative, provocative art, in all its forms, to keep fighting for dignity and freedom. 

Meanwhile, check out the casts of the stage play:

I feel deeply honored to be on this glorious, powerful, creative, epic life transforming artistic political journey with fellow Filipino artists,” Monique proudly shares.

One of the most versatile Theater and Film actresses in the country today, Monique was last seen on the Tanghalang Pilipino stage in 1995, playing Maria Clara in the musical adaptation of Noli Me Tangere.

Prior to Monique, the role of Apolinario Mabini was played by Delphine Buencamino (for which she won the Philstage Gawad Buhay award for Outstanding Female Performance in a Musical) in the original staging in 2015, while former TP Associate Artistic Director Liesl Batucan and actress Hazel Maranan, took over in the subsequent stagings.

Aside from Millado as the director, award-winning playwright Dr. Nicanor Tiongson wrote Mabining Mandirigma, while Joed Balsamo created the music.


Ejay Yatco joins the fold as Musical Director. When asked what makes Mabining Mandirigma different from other musicals, he is quick to point out the interplay between the historical and the contemporary. “It takes a beloved piece of our history added with a modern twist to resound with Filipino audiences especially the youth,” he shares.

Despite being the fourth rerun, the material is still very relevant in light of the events of the world today. “One exciting thing you can expect is a new rap number – so, watch out for that.” Through modern elements such as steampunk music and fliptop rap, Mabining Madirigma tells the story of Apolinario Mabini in a heartfelt and imaginative way while keeping the spirit of what it means to be a true Filipino hero.

Mabining Mandirigma, a Steampunk Musical runs at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater) from August 16 until September 1, 2019. For ticket reservations, groups sales and special performances please contact Tanghalang Pilipino: 0999-8843821, 09156072275 or (02) 832-1125, local 1621.

Tickets are also available at the CCP Box Office, Ticket2me, Bliimo and all Ticketworld outlets.
