Make Way For New Kapuso Singer-Actor Ken Alfonso From Mercator Talent Agency Of Jonas Gaffud

AFTER MIKAEL Daez and JC Tiuseco left him, Jonas Gaffud of Mercator Talents is introducing a new-singer actor, Ken (for Kennedy) Alfonso, who has recorded his first song, “Umaasa”, whose music video has been uploaded on Youtube. He is now under contract with GMA-7. We’ve seen the new actors of GMA and we think Ken is the most promising. He has wholesome good looks and a great voice. His acting coach Beverly Salviejo says he has great promise in drama.

Standing 5’10”, he was born on Feb. 20, 1991. His family is from Binan, Laguna. He says he’s the youngest in a brood of six but his five elder siblings have a different dad. “Ako lang ang anak ng mom ko sa father ko but I’ve never met him,” he confesses. “My mom refuses to talk about him every time I inquire. I was told foreigner daw, but I don’t even know kung anong nationality.”

He lived with an elder sister in Quezon City and finished business administration at UST. He was vacationing in Baguio two years ago with some friends when Jonas spotted him and asked him if he’d like to join showbiz. “Matagal before I contacted him again kasi may regular job ako ngayon with Allergan, a pharmaceutical company that markets Botox. Pinag-acting workshop ako ni Jonas, nag-voice lessons, but I said I’ll only resign from my work kung sigurado na kong mabibigyan ng regular show.”

Who would he like to work with? “Bet ko si Solenn Heussaff kasi total package siya. Maganda na, sexy pa, she also acts and sings well. I’d also like to work with Max Collins.”
