Everyone's been talking about Gigi de Lana lately and we can't blame them! The young singer showed off her pipes during a recent GG Vibes: Live when her bandmates—Jon Cruz, LA Arquero, Jake Manalo, and Romeo Marquez—decided to tease her while they were playing "Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita." If you haven't seen the video, which, as of writing, has 13 million views on Facebook and almost five million views on YouTube, here's the part that got the Internet buzzing:
Gigi de Lana's "Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita"
Girl, napagod din ako, lol!
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Gigi said that when she noticed the note going up, she thought, "Hala, paano 'to? Anong key kaya yung gagawin nila? At the same time, ang tumatakbo sa isip ko dito, sige, go with the flow ako...malalakas ang trip nila. Mahilig sila mag-prank." But she also just chose to enjoy the challenge, na kahit pumiyok pa siya, okay lang. When the livestream ended, she turned to them and said something along the lines of, "Grabe kayo!"
And they did not expect the video to go viral. "Para kasing naglalaro lang kami sa 'Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita' kasi ni-request siya nung fan...tapos, hindi ko alam yung verse. Nakikita niyo yung mukha ko, hinahanap ko yung lyrics." Gigi started singing the chorus and her bandmates were able to follow. Ang saya lang!
