"This is like my last goodbye. Kasi gusto ko mag-pursue ng solo, limang taon ako na kasama sila. So pwede na ako, I want to go solo," he said on "Magandang Buhay."
"I feel like, hindi ba, different points of your life, you have dreams and aspirations and when you reached them, you have new ones. I am at that point na. I have new dreams na gusto ko abutin."
