Hell hath no fury like a manager scorned as Boy Abunda

HELL HATH NO FURY like a manager scorned. With all the unsavory revelations being revealed against him by Boy Abunda, singer Erik Santos should do some damage control to save his reputation which is now in tatters. Erik previously claimed he resigned from Boy’s Backroom, but Boy revealed that this isn’t so since he was fired after 6 years and 7 months with them, as indicated in Boy’s official letter to him.

In his column, Boy said he didn’t want to fight with his artists and he wanted a peaceful ending with Erik who’s also a friend. But Boy learned about Erik badmouthing him and Backroom through a common friend, saying no one was helping plan his career. Boy was further annoyed when some writers wrote that he’s sulking and hurting because Erik left Backroom, so he had to reveal that it was Backroom who let go of Erik because he’s an ingrate who doesn’t know how to say thank you and can’t even get along well with their personnel who accompany him in out of town shows.

Now, wonder what Erik and his new manager, Erick Raymundo who also manages Sam Milby, will do to counter these revelations that paint a bad picture of Erik, especially now that his venturing into musical theatre for the first time as the Prince opposite Rachel Ann Go’s title role portrayal of Atlantis Productions’ “The Little Mermaid” that will be shown late this month.
