Ogie Alcasid admits frustration when Billy Crawford replaced him in hosting stint

Singer-actor Ogie Alcasid admitted that he felt a bit of frustration when he got replaced by Billy Crawford to host a kiddie show last year.

In an interview with PEP.ph, Alcasid talked about his three decades of working in the entertainment industry and assured that he has no plans on retiring soon.

However, even though he still want to continue his career in show business, he admitted that there are points in his career when he felt frustrated.

“Maraming beses akong napu-frustrate. Lalo na kapag flop ang movie. Mahina ang kanta, hindi masyadong nag-hit. May TV show, hindi masyadong tinanggap. Umigsi yung takbo ng teleserye. Siyempre, napu-frustrate ka rin,” PEP.ph quoted Alcasid as saying.

He also shared that one of his most recent frustrations that made him question his talents was in 2017 when a hosting stint was taken away from him and given to Crawford instead.

Alcasid revealed that he was supposed to host the Philippine version of the show “Little Big Shots”, but the franchise owner of the show wanted someone younger.

“I guess noong last year, nag-doubt ako sa sarili ko. Kasi, may show noon na ako dapat ang host, si Billy ang napili. Naramdaman ko yun na parang hindi ako magaling. Pero in hindsight, hindi pala ko nilalagay ni Lord dun,” he said.

Alcasid said after the part was given to Crawford, he felt heartbroken and felt that it was really time for younger talents in the industry.

He said that his wife, Regine Velasquez, took it harder than he did.

“Mas sobra siyang excited sa show na yun. So I said, ‘Honey, hindi ko nakuha yung show. Sabi niya, what?!’ Lungkot na lungkot siya nun, e. But you know, it’s good that you experience it. Mari-realize mo na hindi ka perpekto. At may mga bagay na hindi para sa ‘yo,” he said.

However, he is still thankfull because even though he did not became the host of the show, he was still given other projects.

Alcasid is currently a resident judge in It’s Showtime’s “Tawag ng Tanghalan”, and he is also one of the newest addition to the cast of the weekly comedy “Home Sweetie Home”.

He also said in the interview that he will continue writing music, singing, and acting, “until his last breath”.
