JK Labajo gives up on searching for his German father

Singer JK Labajo made a bold move on his social media account by deleting all his photos on his Instagram profile. 
 
JK then posted a photo of him and his German father, Oliver Stolz. However, few days after, the ‘Buwan’ singer deleted the photo again and replaced it with him as a toddler and his mother. 
 
The singer explained his posts on Saturday to his followers. First, he thanked those who made an effort in searching for his long lost father. He said that a lot of people gave him tips on his whereabouts and even different ways on how he could possible get in touch with him. 
 
“I have been looking for my father for years now and I have tried everything  possible to look for him. It’s not as simple as a Facebook search. I deeply appreciate everyone’s efforts to help. Lot’s of love from me to you,” the singer wrote. 
 
JK then said that his father lives in Munich, Germany. The challenge however was that he doesn’t have any social media accounts. 
 
“His name is Oliver Stolz. Apparently he is from Munich. My dad doesn’t have social media. He is NOT on Facebook. He is NOT on IG. He is NOT on Twitter,” JK added. 
 
The singer revealed his motivation why he wanted to get in contact with his father. He wanted to give closure for his mother, who died without his father on his mother’s side. 
 
“Hindi naman ako nasaktan o nalungkot na di ko nakasama tatay ko sa paglaki kasi mas higit pa ang pagmamahal na ibinigay sa akin ng aking lola, tito, at aking ermats. Ang pinakamasakit lang sa akin ay yung wala siya sa mga panahong sobrang kinailangan siya ng nanay ko. Hanggang sa huli niyang hingalo, hindi man lang siya nagpakita,” he said. 
 
But what’s more surprising for the singer was his father’s move to block him in a social messaging app. 
 
“My father blocked me. Years ago natulungan ako ni Kuya Bonnie ko na mahanap ang number ng tatay ko. WE have been trying to reach out to him but got no response. Two days ago, someone who was helping me find him found out that he made a whatsapp account around November last year. I messaged him two days ago asking if he was Oliver Stolz. The messages got delivered. Today, I tried to message him again just to see that he blocked me,” JK said. 
 
After what his father did, the singer said that he is ending his search for him and thanked those who put an effort in helping him. 
 
“This concludes the end of my search. His bio says, ‘Life is beautiful.’ I guess he has a family now and he definitely doesn’t want me to be part of it. “Thank you to everyone who gave their time and efforts in helping me. I appreciate it,” the singer wrote.
