Sandro Marcos, Son Of Sen. Bongbong Marcos, Has Gained Lots Of Fans On Social Media

SANDRO MARCOS gained more than a million fans in social media after he became visible in the recent vice presidential campaign of his dad, Sen. Bongbong Marcos.

“Alalay na lang kami at photobomber ni Sandro, kami ng misis kong si Liza,” says Sen. Bongbong in a lunch arranged by Manay Ichu Maceda who acted as his late dad’s secretary in Hawaii. “We were so surprised nang mag-viral sa social media ang mga kuha niya. Sa campaign, kapag nagi-speech ako, wala nang nakikinig. Nagpapa-picture na lang sa kanya. Nakakatuwa ang response ng tao sa kanya.”

So is the 22-year old Sandro joining showbiz? “My friend, Jake Ejercito, asked if I’d want to guest with him sa ‘Lip Sync Battle’ but, honestly, I give more priority to my studies. Tapos na ako ng bachelor’s degree ko in political economy and I’m going back to London at the end of August to take up my master’s degree naman.”

He says he’s more partial to joining my politics and his dad has this to say to him: “The easiest way to politics is through showbiz.” “And he can be the manager of Sandro,” quips his wife Liza.

Sen. Bongbong’s election protest has been filed and he’s confident it will be resolved in one year. He’s now also busy with the coming burial of his late dad at the Libingan ng mga Bayani now that this has been approved by Pres. Duterte. “It’s my mom who’ll decide on the exact date of the burial in September. The military has a well planned ceremony for that. But there will be some memorial services muna in Ilocos. First in the town of Sarrat, where he was born, then in Paoay, where he lived, and the last night will be in Batac before we take him to Manila.”
