Michael V Renews His Exclusive Contract With GMA Network, Now In 3 Regular Shows: 'Bubble Gang', 'Pepito Manaloto' & 'Lip Synch Battle Philippines'

MICHAEL V has just renewed his contract with GMA Network, affirming once more that he’s a real Kapuso through and through. He currently has three regular shows on GMA-7: the long running gag show “Bubble Gang” that has been airing for 23 years, the award-winning family sitcom “Pepito Manaloto” that’s been running for 9 yearsm and he is also host the hit celebrity competition, “Lip Sync Battle Philippines”, that is now on its 3rd hit season.

“Bale 23 years na ako sa GMA at masaya ako rito kaya masaya rin akong nag-renew ng kontrata ko with them,” says the comic genius. “Mahirap magpasaya ng tao kung ikaw mismo, hindi ka masaya. E, ako, masaya ako sa GMA kasi they give me enough artistic freedom to do what I want to do. Napagbibigyan nila yung mga kahilingan ko para sa shows ko at anong kagustuhan kong magpasaya ng audience, sinusuportahan nila. Yun talaga ang pinaka-ugat ng pagpapasaya natin.”

GMA bosses are grateful and proud that Michael or Bitory is loyal in being a Kapuso. “Alam niya kung ano ang pulso ng viewers and his talent and dedication to his craft are both unparalleled,” says GMA exec Jimmy Duavit. “We look forward to working with him for the next 23 more years.”

Bitoy now also has his own vlog on youtube, “Bitoy Story”, and he just featured his expensive toy collection inside his man cave. One of his expensive toys is a rare Voltes V robot now priced at P30,000. Bitoy is hands on in doing his vlog as he himself writes the script, does the editing and scoring. It’s very informative and full of interesting trivia about a lot of things so try watching it and be thoroughly entertained.
