“Nung grade school ako, inoperahan yung left eye ko. Tinanggal yung cyst. During my younger years, syempre mai-insecure ka. So, I had the chance to cover it.”
It was when he became a part of the Cicada Band wherein he thought of wearing shades to hide his deformed left eye.
“Nung nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon to be part of Cicada Band, dun ko lang na-experiment na mag-shades. From then on, naka-salamin ako.”

In a separate interview with the momshies of “Magandang Buhay,” the 57-year-old singer clarified that his both eyes could see. It’s just that the left one appears way smaller than the other.
“Actually, wala namang problema [sa mata ko]. Nakikita ‘yung kanang mata ko. Pero wala namang pagkakaiba ‘yung dalawang [mata ko] eh, mas maliit lang ‘yung isa.”
