Born on 1967, super star Ogie Alcasid celebrated his 25th
year in the business on August of 2012 by doing a record launch, releasing his latest picture “I Do Biddo Bidoo” and opening a Japanese restaurant in Thomas Morato called Ryu Ramen. This former De La Salle University student started his career with a bang and is know known Nationwide (and across Asia) as not only a great comedic actor, but a brilliant songwriter and singer to boot. Alcasid follows up his iconic roles in the business by entering a new business, the restaurant industry, as he finally opens his dream restaurant with his wife Regine Velasquez. As quoted in his twitter profile, Ogie is “a firm believer of the Filipino Spirit” and continues to inspire millions of Filipinos with his still flourishing career. He also puts in work as the President of OPM (Organisasyon ng Pilpinong Mang-Aawit) and as the Commissioner of the Edsa People Power Commission. During his wonderful music career (that started in 1989), Alcasid has been able to release a total of 22 albums. These including 7 gold albums, 3 platinum albums and a whopping 3 double platinum albums as well. It seems like Ogie Alcasid is a force to be reckoned with, one that will not stop.
