Ogie Alcasid Turns 48 & Is Overwhelmed By The Outpouring Of Love For Him Of His TV5 Bosses And Co-Stars

OGIE ALCASID turned 48 on August 27 and he got a big surprise when the Happy Network TV5 went all out to make sure that their prized property Kapatid singer-songwriter was on his happiest celebrating his special day. Despite the long weekend, TV5 executives, led by TV5’s very own President and CEO Noel C. Lorenzana, took time from their busy schedules to personally greet Ogie on the set of their Sunday noontime show, "Happy Truck Ng Bayan" at their location on Commonwealth AVenue, Quezon City.

Of course, the biggest surprise came from none other than his beloved wife, Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez, who showed up on the set to personally give her well-wishes for Ogie. She even sang for him. Before his actual birthday, Regine, Ogie and their son Nate also went to Bali for his special birthday celebrations, with some other immediate members of their family. "It was our second time there," Regine told us when we saw her at the Starstruck presscon in her own home, GMA-7.

Seen greeting Ogie on his natal day are his TV5 co-star and top management big wheels, including Janno Gibbs, Ritz Azul, Jasmine Curtis Smith, Anykka Asistio, SVP and Head of Programming Atty. Dan de Padua, Derek Ramsay, Ogie Alcasid, TV5 President and CEO Noel C. Lorenzana, Shaira Mae dela Cruz, Chanel Morales, Sophie Albert, Chief Entertainment Content Officer Wilma V. Galvante, Mark Neumann, Martin Escudero, Alwyn Uytingco, Kim Idol, Gelli de Belen, Tuesday Vargas, Tom Taus, Empoy, Vin Abrenica, Akihiro Blanco and Carl Guevara. Aside from “Happy Truck ng Bayan”, Ogie also topbills the Sunday night sitcom, “No Harm No Foul”, with top basketball stars.
