    Hay…kakainis naman ang ABS-CBN. Palaging magaling sa pag discover ng mga bagong singer. Nahahalata tuloy kaming mga Kanguso na hindi magaling ang GMeeww Records namin. Bakit ganun?

    Ang tagal nang walang sumikat na Singer mula sa GMeew namin. Si Regine lang ata ang una at pinaka huling sikat na singer sa GMeeewww Station namin. Sa ABS-CBN bumabaha ang singers. Si Juliana namin na 9X Platinum ang album ni hindi maka puno ng Music Museum. Kaloka!!!!

    Si Regine naman, wala nang pakialam sa GMEeew namin, lumipat na nga ang asawa nyang si Ogie Alcasid sa TB5 kasi Bokya na Flop talaga ang Gmeew Station namin. Baka lumipat din ang Regine namin sa TB5 in the future kasi nan dun na ang asawa nya…..nakakahiya na talaga!!!!!

    Hay….. Binenta pa talaga ng LOLO GOZON namin ang 30% Shares ng GMeeewww namin sa San Miguel.

    Aaaahhhhh!!!! Kayo na…kayo na talaga ABS-CBN!!!!

    Sa inyo na ang lahat!!!!!

    Kakainis…..CHAR :D

  5. Kaya congrats ABSCBN.. Magaling at sikat talaga kayo in all aspect!
