Victor "Vico" Sotto has been a hot trending topic these past few days after being elected mayor of Pasig, ending the 27-year rule of the Eusebios. Yes, in case you missed it, the 29-year-old councilor (he assumed office in 2016) and son of celebrities Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes, is now the new Mayor-elect of one of the largest cities in Metro Manila.
But even before winning the 2019 midterm elections and officially starting his mayoral duties, Vico has already been on the social media spotlight for his viral interviews where everyone got a glimpse of his "less serious" side.
For one, in a recent interview by GMA News (published by Inquirer.net), he was asked about the status of his love life—and Vico answered that he'd rather sleep than have one.
"Wala talagang time," he said. "Pag may free time ako, mas gusto ko pang matulog or magpahinga na lang."
According to him, his priority now is to focus on his tasks as the new city mayor. But he's not totally closing any doors.
"Tingnan na lang natin, Diyos na ang bahala kung paano mangyayari,” he said. "Siyempre eventually, gusto mo rin naman di ba? But for now, focus-focus muna.”
Meanwhile, in an interview published by blogger Jing Javier on May 6, Vico gamely answered questions about his love life as well.
“Lahat puwede tanungin, bawal lang tanungin ang tungkol sa love life,” he said. “Bawal tanungin kasi wala kasi.”
“So walang magiging first lady ang Pasig ngayon?” the blogger asked Vico.
“Sa ngayon wala po. Hanapan niyo na lang po ako,” he answered.
