Mikee Quintos

MIKEE Quintos is one Kapuso star who is an active vlogger. “I shoot and edit my own vlogs,” she says. “Hands on ako. Wala naman kasing tapings, so I have all the time to do it myself. From conceptualizing and planning kung ano 'yung isu-shoot, to creating the script and the flow of the whole thing, ako na lahat ang gumagawa. I really want to stay personally connected with my fans.”

She also invites other stars to be a guest in her own youtube channel. Recently, she invited her good friend Ruru Madrid and they played the “No Laughing Challenge”.  They took turns in making each other laugh and you should try your best to refrain from laughing. If you’d laugh then that means you lose and you have to answer a question. Of course, when Ruru lost, Mikee asked him about his lovelife. If you want to find out what his answer is, then tune in to Mikee’s vlog to watch this “No Laughing Challenge” episode right away. 

Meantime, Mikee, a good singer, has released a new single entitled “Ngayon” which has very inspirational lyrics.

“I dedicate this to all of us who are suffering for one reason or another in this season of the corona pandemic,” she says. “Lalo na yung mga nawalan ng mahal sa buhay dahil sa virus. Ako mismo, nawalan ng kaibigan dahil sa virus and when I heard the news, I felt really sad.”

It was doubly sad because there was no wake at all for the deceased. “Nakakaiyak lang  ‘yung thought na ni hindi man lang siya naburol kasi hindi pwedeng magburol.

Inikot nalang nila ‘yung coffin niya in a car sa paligid ng barangay. Sobrang biglaan lang ang lahat. I’m praying for everyone who lost a loved one during COVID-19 pandemic.” 

Her new song “Ngayon” delivers a positive message about not losing hope and fostering positive feelings even in times of trials and tribulations. 

“I really like how the song’s tone sends a positive feeling. Parang good vibes siya. I want to inspire people to really make use of the time na mayroon tayo ngayon in the most productive way. Gawin na lahat ngayon ng hindi nila nagawa before. See the brighter side of things with everything that’s going on kahit ang lungkot ng news, kahit ang lungkot ng mga nangyayari sa atin, it’s up to us to make good news for ourselves.”

Mikee is part of the action-fantasy “Encantadia” now seen on primetime. Her two recent soaps, “Onanay” and “The Gift” are now both big hits in Latin American countries that bought their TV rights.
