DAVAO CITY - President-elect Rodrigo Duterte’s youngest son, Sebastian, thanked his father's supporters on Saturday and said it was time to get "serious" in helping the incoming administration succeed.

The young Duterte, also known as "Baste," urged the crowd at a victory party here to buy locally-made products like the t-shirt, shorts, and slippers he wore on stage. 

"I know we're on party mode, but let's be serious," said Duterte, who has become a surprise heartthrob during the campaign with his unkempt hair and lip piercing.

He played down his newfound popularity, saying he is no celebrity.
