Ai Ai delas Alas resigns as Ex-Batallion’s manager due to group’s rudeness, unprofessionalism

Kapuso comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas became emotional as she announced that she has decided to resign as Ex-Battalion’s manager.

Delas Alas explained in a press conference that she chose to end her contract with the said OPM hip hop group because she can no longer take their rudeness and unprofessionalism.

“Wala naman akong pakielam sa private nilang buhay. Ang akin is ‘yung professionalism, and ‘yung how they treat people, how they treat me. Minsan walang respeto. Hindi nila ako sinusunod,” delas Alas said.

The Philippine Comedy Queen said that she already wanted to resign as Ex-Battalion’s manager but she only waited for the premiere of the group’s movie “Sons of Nanay Sabel”.

“Actually matagal na dapat akong magre-resign. Nahihiya lang ako sa Viva Films kasi may film kami na lalabas. Since lumabas naman na yung film, okay na masabi ko na mag-quit ako,” she said.

Delas Alas said that managing the group only caused her stress and that she regrets agreeing to be their manager.

“At least nakatulong ako sa kanila. ‘Yun naman ‘yung parati kong sinasabi sa kanila na ‘Lahat ng ginagawa ko para sa inyo, wala akong ginagawa para sa sarili ko,'” she said.

“Lumapit sila sa akin para tulungan ko sila e. Tinulungan ko sila tapos hindi nila na-a-appreciate at saka wala silang respeto sa akin and they don’t trust me,” she added.

Delas Alas also called out two of the group’s member because of what they did during the premiere night of their movie.

She said that the movie premiere was delayed because two of the members were late.

“Na-delay yung premiere night dahil yung dalawa, late,” she said.

“Bakit late? Dahil bumili sila ng costume. ‘Bat bumibili kayo sa araw na kailangan kayo sa premiere night?’

“Sabi ko, ‘Nakakahiya kayo. Hindi na kayo nahiya doon sa ibang artista, yung mga senior stars na nag-iintay sa inyo. Anong karapatan niyong pag-intayin kami?'” she narrated.

Delas Alas also said that because of her experience, she is no longer willing to manage any other groups in the future.

“‘Wag na mag-manage. Mag-aartista na lang ako, magpo-produce, magko-concert. Ayoko na mag-manage kung ganun lang din,” she said.

She also said that the stress that was caused by managing Ex-Battalion left her traumatized.

“Traumatized [ako sa kanila] kasi ‘yung stress hindi mo mababayaran eh. Yung parati kang kinakabahan,” she said.

Ex-Battallion gained nationwide prominence over the past years after releasing the hit songs “Hayaan Mo Sila” and “No Games”.

The group has not yet addressed the resignation of delas Alas as their manager.
