Netizens from facebook and other social networking sites still wonder what is the life of the former Rivermaya vocalist Bamboo Manalac’s without camera. Well, are you one of them?
Francisco Gaudencio Lupe Belardo Mañalac (real name) grew up on the stage before he experienced the prominence of being the lead vocalist of now disbanded group, “Rivermaya.” Their hits were as follows: “Himala,” “Kung Ayaw Mo, Wag Mo,” and “Awit ng Kabataan.” But after being rehabilated for a few years, Bamboo decided to rest for quite some time and later formed his own band that was named after him. His band was doing well until the rock singer gets a solo career that became the key for his continuous recognition in the industry.
Now, the question is: How did bamboo managed to have a private life behind the camera when he’s very famous now? In an interview during his yahoo award, the rock maestro abruptly told the press that “work is work” and “family is family,” which gives us the clarification that the singer does not want to intruded in his private life in order to keep his family from the ruthless issues that the showbiz gives. When told by the press that his mature wife is very rich, he just gently smiled and put the topic down that clearly explains that his privacy is very important to him.
Now we know why Bamboo’s life off-cam is still a mystery. He just wanted to protect his family away from the inconsideration of show business.
If you’re a fan of the rock maestro, this performance with the popstar royalty Sarah Geronimo could cheer you up. This video became trending worldwide last summer 2013.
