GMA’s ‘Wowowin’ has a new comedian, who was discovered when he was a contestant on the game show.
Romeo, more popularly known as ‘Super Tekla’, really knows how to tickle his audience’s fancy through his jokes and punch lines. This is one of the reasons why Wowowin host Willie Revillame wanted him to be a regular cast member on the show.
Behind the laughter, Super Tekla shared his story of the hardships, failures and challenges that he had to overcome on ‘Magpakailanman’.
Surprisingly, Super Tekla is a not member of the LGBTQ community. He claims that dressing up as a woman is just part of his act as a comedian. He has an estranged wife and daughter who are very dear to him.
Unfortunately, last 2013, he and his wife went their separate ways. He succumbed to vices, such as gambling and illegal drugs, just so he could forget the pain and sadness brought by his wife leaving him.
The hard times didn’t last, however, and when given the opportunity he immediately grabbed it and joined the cast of Wowowin.
He has truly turned his life around, proving that it is never too late to change our circumstances!
