Amid the ABS-CBN shutdown, thousands of employees lost their jobs. Since the network’s franchise renewal is still pending, most artists had to find other opportunities to keep them afloat during the pandemic. Many contracts were ended, while some managed to stay with ABS-CBN. Among those who were laid off is comedian Pokwang.

In a recent press conference, the “Banana Sundae” host revealed that she was one of the first artists whose contract with the Kapamilya network ended. Right after the network went off air, the management has informed Pokwang that they will have to let her go along with other celebrities.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako nang sobrang-sobrang pasasalamat po talaga sa ABS, sa mga nagtiwala sa akin. And nagpapasalamat pa rin po ako, kasi ako po yung una nilang sinabihang wala nang kontrata. Dahil ganun kaaga po nila ako sinabihan, maaga po akong nakapag-decide, nakapag-isip para po sa pamilya ko,” Pokwang said.

But instead of moping, Pokwang took this chance to seek other opportunities. According to Pokwang, she can’t stop working because she needs to keep on providing for her children and her elderly mom. Fortunately, right after she got laid off from ABS-CBN, Pokwang was offered a contract in TV 5.

“In all fairness po talaga, thank you po talaga sa APT, sa Archangel na bukas po yung pintuan nila. Buti na lang ay may sumalo agad sakin. Thank you po talaga. Malaking tulong po ito talaga sa pamilya ko. Maraming-marmaing salamat po. Hindi mawawala syempre kung ano yung nagawa sakin ng ABS, sobrang thank you po talaga.”

The comedian currently has two shows produced by Cignal Entertainment and Archangel Media Media, Inc. Together with Ria Atayde and Pauline Lune-Sotto, Pokwang will star in the talk show “Chika, Besh.” She will also be the host of TV 5’s latest game show “Fill in the Blanks” with Jose Manalo.
