Talent Manager, comedian and influencer Ogie Diaz received the award for “2022 Most Outstanding Vlogger of the Year” for the phenomenal success of his “Ogie Diaz” channel and the “Ogie Diaz Showbiz Update” which is currently the number one, if not, the main source of online first rate entertainment news in showbiz industry. Mr. Diaz missed accepting his award in person as he just left for Manila days before the awarding. (This author accepted the award on his behalf).
A big surprise of the evening was the performance of former actress and singer Ms. Carina Afable. She sang “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” with a tagalog twist. She was accompanied by well-known musical director Mr. Alex Lagman (who is also an awardee that night). Ms. Afable received the “Hall of Fame in the Music Industry” award.
Former GMA 7 “The Clash” winner Golden Canedo sang two songs, belting out high notes with songs “Never Enough” and “All By Myself” to the delight of the audience and received the award for “Most Promising Concert Artist.”
