Kiray Celis shared the struggles of being an artist after her friend Jovit Baldivino passed away due to an aneurysm after performing at a party last December 3.
It can be remembered that Jovit was already been advised by his doctor to rest and avoid singing, but still performed after receiving requests from other guests who attended the party.
In a video uploaded on the internet, it can be seen that Jovit was visibly tired during his performance but still continued to sing.
An hour after, Jovit was rushed to the hospital after showing severe symptoms of an aneurysm.
After five days of being unconscious, Jovit who’s know for his angelic voice passed away at the age of 29.
According to Kiray, she understood that it’s difficult for Jovit to refuse the request of other people because he’s also protecting his image as an artist, and saying ‘no’ to his fans may give them a bad impression.
She then urged the netizens to also try to understand the situation of the celebrities.
“HIRAP rin po talagang maging performer o artista.. Kapag tumanggi ka sa gusto nila, mayabang o nagbago kana. “Yung kahit malungkot ka, dapat masaya ka sa paningin nila. Kahit antok ka dapat hyper ka sakanila. Kahit gutom ka dapat nakangiti kapa rin.” said Kiray.
“Kaya sana intindihin niyo rin po na tao lang rin kami. Artista man o hindi, lahat po tayo may problema. Lahat tayo may pinagdadaanan sa araw araw. Kaya piliin natin umunawa. Piliin nating maging mabait.” she added.
The post received thousands of reactions on social media.
