Netizens were mourning the passing of the first grand winner of Pilipinas Got Talent Jovit Baldivino on September 9, 2022.
According to the statement of the Baldivino family, Jovit was advised by his doctor to take a rest for awhile and stop performing while he was recovering from high blood pressure.
However, Baldivino still performed after a friend from Batangas City invited him to a party.
“According to Jovit Baldivino’s parents Mr. Hilario ‘Larry’ and Mrs. Cristeta Baldivino and fiancé Camille Ann Miguel (during our personal visit to the hospital on December 6, 2022), he was recuperating for a week with hypertension maintenance medicines,” the family statement reads.
In a video uploaded on social media, it can be noticed that Jovit was already having discomfort while performing his third song ‘The Flame’.
Some netizens noticed that Jovit was also catching his breath already.
One hour after his performance, Jovit was rushed to the hospital because of sudden change in his condition.
“After an hour while sitting, his face was deformed with flowing salivas. He was then rushed to the nearest ER at Nazareth of Jesus Hospital last December 3, 2022 around 10pm. CTscan showed a blood clot in the brain (sign of aneurysm). 100cc of blood was suctioned 2:00 AM of December 4, 2022. He was In comatose for 5 days.” the Baldivino family said.
Some netizens said that if only Jovit followed the advice of his doctor, he might be alive today.
However, it seems that the Jovit cannot be stopped from doing what he loves, to perform in front of his fans.
