Walang basagan ng trip! Baste to sing in Bohol concert
TAGBILARAN CITY – Presidential son Sebastian “Baste” Duterte will showcase his singing talents to a politically-charge audience in line with his transformation into public service.
Dubbed the “I am Bol-anon: Youth for Change Concert”, the three-hour musical treat will also feature pop entertainer Ice (Aiza) Seguerra, who briefly served as National Youth Commission chair after helping in the 2016 presidential campaign.
“I am Bol-anon: Youth for Change Concert” is sponsored by Bohol Youngbloods, an organization founded and managed by a new generation of young leaders, culture and arts advocates and youth volunteers.
It will be held in three separate venues in the population centers of each of Bohol’s three districts at two hours interval.
The opening concert will be held for youths in the second district at the Ramon Magsaysay Gym in Ubay town. It will open at 1 p.m. and wrap up at 4 p.m.
This will be followed by the concert for third district youths in the gymnasium of Carmen town. This time, the show will run from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Meanwhile, the final show will be at the Holy Name University Oval in the capital city of Tagbilaran. The concert will open at 3 p.m. and cap at 6 p.m.
This will be a coming out show of sorts for the normally reclusive Baste.
The youngest son of President Rodrigo Duterte was almost out of sight during the entire 21 years his father served as mayor of Davao City.
Baste, however, surprised even his closest friends when he became the most actively involved among the Duterte siblings in the 2016 presidential campaign.
When asked about the change of heart, Baste replied with a gem.
“I saw so many people giving up so much to campaign for my father. If they who do not even know my father can sacrifice for his victory, why can’t I?” he said.
It turned out that the Duterte pedigree had rubbed off on Baste contrary to perceptions that he was apolitical.
Baste filed his certificate of candidacy for vice mayor of Davao City accompanied by his sister Mayor Sara Duterte, who is seeking reelection.
All three siblings including former Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, who is running for congressman in Davao’s first district, are unopposed.
