Sikat Ka, Kapuso! concerts take social media by storm
GMA Pinoy TV’s Sikat Ka, Kapuso! was a huge hit among Filipinos abroad as the back-to-back shows featuring Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo, Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado, Kapuso Premier Drama Actress Lovi Poe, Pambansang Bae Alden Richards, Kapuso comedian Betong Sumaya, and Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes took New Jersey and Toronto by storm.
The shows held at the Newark Symphony Hall, New Jersey last April 7 and Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, Toronto last April 8 were flocked by excited Pinoys who came from different parts of America and Canada. Fans travelled all the way from New York, Florida, Texas, Michigan, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton, St. Laurent and Montreal, Ottawa, and Windsor just to see their Kapuso idols perform on stage and get the chance to take photos with them.
The Kapuso abroad also took to social media how much they enjoyed watching Sikat Ka Kapuso! which became a trending topic over the long weekend.
“One of the best shows I’ve watched in years,” Joyce Andes-David wrote on Facebook. “[It was] filled with fun, laughter and such wonderful talent and all out performances. Grabe! We’re still talking about it!”
“Very entertaining. We were laughing from beginning to end!” said Marilyn Gacilos Abiva from Queens, New York.
Jocelyn Escanlar, a GMA Pinoy TV subscriber from Cambridge, Ontario, wrote that even though they always see the artists in their respective TV programs, seeing them in real life is a totally different experience. “We knew they were tired because of their hectic schedule/jet lag and yet their performance level was very high,” she said.
Sikat Ka, Kapuso! is a GMA-produced event which aims to bring Filipinos abroad closer to home via its international channels GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International.
Partner carriers in the US and Canada also joined the party. Representatives from Charter Communications and RCN attended the New Jersey show while Canadian carriers Bell and Rogers set up booths at the Toronto show.
