Alden Richards remains proud to be Kapuso after more than a decade with GMA.
Asia’s Multimedia Star officially renewed his contract with GMA Artist Center on Friday, October 15.
“I’m a home grown Kapuso at isa yan sa ipinagmamalaki ko, because my dreams came true sa tulong ng GMA. It’s an honor to be a part of people’s lives, and I’m really glad that I get to do it with GMA. Ako po si Alden Richards, proud to be Kapuso,” he said.
Expressing his gratitude for the trust and support that GMA has given him, Alden said it was exactly because of their belief in him that “I get to do great projects na hindi ko naisip na magagawa ko.”
“Kaya I always strive to do better, para hindi nasasayang ang tiwala na binibigay sakin lalo na ng mga fans,” Alden continued.
The GMA celebrity reiterated his desire “to do well in this industry, to be able to help and inspire people, to be doing quality shows that will bring happiness to them.”
“Mahalaga po sa kin ang i-share ang mga blessings na natatanggap ko,” Alden added.
“Sa dami ng pinagdaanan ko, I wouldn’t have made it this far without the people who guided me every step of the way.”
