I think I was very vocal in saying when I started as a member here way back then that I really wished Pchy would go solo because big opportunities await him. Dapat matagal ng super sikat si Pchy but he prioritized his studies and August Band. Admittedly, he was left behind by Mario since he continued accepting offers left and right. Good enough that Pchy's fans held on him so tightly that they never left him and anywhere he goes, fans will always shout his name. It is this reason that producers have become so interested of him. The offfers for him were to go solo and since he is already done with his studies, it's time to give his career his preferential attention. So fans of Pchy out there, let's keep the fire burning for Pchy because he will surely fill the magazines with his pictures and the record bars will reverberate with his songs.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE:
If Pchy wouldn't leave August Band, it would become very difficult for him to compete with Mario's popularity because he would always share stellar billing with other members of August Band. Think about it, there are 11 members of August Band plus the managers, so the producers have to spend for all of them when there is an offer to do a concert somewhere, and it spells a lot of budget, whereas if Pchy would go solo, the producers would spend only for him and for his managers . Come to think of it.
I love August Band, that's one thing for sure, but let's admit it, It is Pchy that we idolize first before them, kungbaga, nadala na lang sila because of Pchy.
Pchy is now ready to reclaim the spotlight that once became his and Mario's. The time for him to shine so brightly once again is now, and there's no stopping him. Pchy as many magazines would describe him now, is the NEXT BIG THING ! and for Mario, I'd like to say NANDITO NA SI MEW KAYA SA MULI MAPAPASAINYO ANG TUGATOG NG TAGUMPAY
