MANILA — After quitting in the reality talent search “America’s Got Talent,” Gab Valenciano, son of Gary Valenciano has already returned to the Philippines.

“Whenever people ask me, ‘Did you actually make it?’ I actually did pero ‘yun nga, when we got deeper into it, me, my mom and my dad, we all talked about it and we all realized na parang in show business, especially in reality TV, parang you’re not reassured na you will make it unlike getting into a business where ito talaga ‘yung ginawa ko. I love making music, I love making videos. I realized I want to do this for a living,” he said in an interview with  ABS-CBN News’ Ginger Conejero last Friday.

Gab clarified the rumors that he got terminated from the talent show saying he quit the show for more “permanent opportunities.”

He added that he had to choose his passion or a “30-second fame.”

“What I went there for is music production and video production. I had to choose if I wanted my 30 seconds of fame or if I wanted something that would last my whole career,” he said.

Gab was talking about putting up a media company in the United States with his friends.

“I am actually putting up my own media company which is going to be based in the States and basically it’s going to be all video and music content,” he said.

“We are going to be a team of five people that are going to be shooting, recording – all of these things. It’s something na ito talaga yung pinuntahan ko sa States. I studied for it. I graduated already. So I’m really excited for that” he added.
