SARAH GERONIMO, MATTEO GUIDICELLI Speak Up In Light Of ABS-CBN Franchise Denial

MYX Philippines

Posted at July 19, 2020


Sarah Geronimo took to social media to decry the denial of ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal at the House of Representatives over a week ago. The decision has caused the massive retrenchment of Kapamilya workers including the majority of MYX channel and MYXph.com staff effective August 31, 2020.

In her lengthy post, the singer-actress shared how the Kapamilya network embraced her as its own. "Malaking bahagi po ng aking karera ang ABS-CBN. Maliban po sa pamilya ko at sa aking manager na si Boss Vic, ang ABS-CBN po ay ang network na ilang beses na sumugal at sumuporta sa akin bilang artista at performer," she said. "Niyakap nila ako at inalagaan nang husto na parang kanilang sariling ‘anak’ o homegrown talent. Malaki po ang utang na loob ko sa network na ito at habangbuhay ko po ipagpapasalamat ang bawat oportunidad, tiwala na ibinigay nila sa akin."

She added, "Bagama’t napakasakit po na matanggihan, patuloy pa rin kaming sumasamo, nakikiusap at umaapila, nagdadasal para sa aming hangarin na mabigyan muli ang aming minamahal na ABS-CBN family ng isa pang pagkakataon. Pagkakataon na makabawi kung meron mang naging pagkukulang, pagkakataon na malawakang makapaglingkod, makapagbigay serbisyo sa mamamayang Pilipino."

The 31-year-old also rallied behind the ABS-CBN employees whose livelihoods have been affected after the denial of the network’s franchise application in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Mahal ko po ang aking ABS-CBN family. Mahalaga po sa akin ang bawat empleyado na labis na nagdadalamhati ngayon dahil sa kawalan ng trabaho. Nakikiisa po ako sa kanilang apila na muling makabalik sa trabaho upang patuloy na makapagbigay ng serbisyo para sa kani-kanilang mga pamilya at para sa bansa," she said.

Sarah concluded her message by reiterating the need for unity during these trying times. "Magkaisa po tayo para sa ating mahal na bansang Pilipinas. Magkaisa po tayo para sa ating kapwa," she said in all caps. Read her full message below:

Meanwhile, her husband Matteo Guidicelli said in a post that they "lit a candle last night" and "took a moment and prayed for each and every employee some of which are close to my heart from the years we spent together. Hold on tight, we will rise again."
