Most child stars fade into obscurity once they grow up and lose their cuteness. For the misguided ones, they tend to fall on the wrong side of the fence. Others try to lead normal lives, until showbiz comes a ‘knocking again.
For Makisig Morales, it was the latter.
Makisig rose to fame when he finished second in the singing competition, "Little Big Star," in 2005. After this, he starred as Budong/Super Inggo in the fantasy series "Super Inggo."
He went on to star in other movies and TV shows, but eventually left showbiz after his last supporting role in 2014.
What happened to our favorite kid superhero?
Makisig now resides with his family in Australia, where they will stay for good. “Para secured na po ang future namin ng family ko. But pag mayroon pong show na offer sa akin dito sa Philippines, I would take that opportunity po,” he said during an interview.
Just like any independent young man, the 20-year-old balances his work with studies. In his Instagram, the former Kapamilya star shares how he enjoys his work in a fast food restaurant.
Watch the video below:
He is currently studying to become a chef.
Away from the limelight, what keeps him occupied nowadays?
“Busy po ako sa studying, work, and pag serve po for the Lord. Busy rin po ako sa pagiging big brother sa aking mga younger siblings,” Makisig happily shared.
The "Super Inggo" star still has supportive fans, despite his absence from showbiz. “Ang masasabi ko po sa lahat ng fans and supporters ko po, mahal na mahal ko po sila. Sana hindi po sila mag sawa na suportahan ako at gagawin ko po ang best ko na makapagbigay ng saya at ma-share ang binigay ni Lord God na talent sa akin.”
Looks like Makisig hasn’t lost his touch.
The former singer’s cover of Bruno Mars’ "Versace on the Floor" recently became viral. He admitted that he usually makes covers to update his fans, but was surprised that his rendition of Mars’ sensual song put him on the radar again.
Makisig is currently in the Philippines to shoot a show, the details of which were not disclosed.
