WATCH: Young Luis Manzano shows off rap, dance skills in throwback video


Luis Manzano had a major throwback moment after sharing this video of him rapping and dancing as a kid — a performance that even made his mom Vilma Santos cry.

In a six-minute clip posted on Instagram, the TV host-actor was seen unleashing rap and dance skills in a surprise performance for the “Star for All Seasons” during her birthday celebration on her variety show Vilma! in the ’80s.

“Talent ba kamo? World-class Pinoy pride ba kamo? Eto na…,” wrote Luis as caption.

Vilma, who was accompanied by her then husband Edu Manzano, appeared touched and proud by their only son’s special production number.

“Alam niyo iniiwasan po namin si Lucky na mag-perform dahil marami kaming plano para sa anak namin but hindi namin ho kayang pigilan ang aming anak at gusto ho talaga niya mag-perform para sa kanyang ina,” said Edu in the video where he and Vilma were interviewed by the late showbiz talk show host Inday Badiday.

“At napaka-swerte ho namin dahil manang mana ang kanyang pagsayaw sa kanyang ama,” he added in jest. 

Commenting on her fiance’s throwback video, Jessy had a special request from Luis: “Pakiulit yan sa kasal natin please. ??”

The video which has been viewed for more than 400,000 times brought good vibes to netizens and fellow celebs.
