‘The Voice’ winner Mitoy Yonting to join ‘Showtime’

To those asking what’s next for “The Voice of the Philippines” winner Mitoy Yonting, the man with the big voice already has the answer.
 
The grand champion shared that ABS-CBN is cooking up three TV projects for him —including a sitcom, a Sunday show and a daily gig on “It’s Showtime.”
 
The Kapamilya noontime show is the archrival of “Eat Bulaga,” the show that gave Mitoy his first TV exposure.
 
But as far as the 43-year-old singer is concerned, there’s nothing wrong with accepting the noontime show offer—especially since he has “Eat Bulaga” host Vic Sotto’s blessings.
 
“Personally kinausap ko si Vic Sotto. Nilapitan ko si Bossing. Nagpaalam ako. Siyempre respeto naman ‘yun e ang laki naman ng naitulong sa’kin [ng Eat Bulaga] noong simula e,” he told the media during the launch of SMART Music’s SPINNR.
 
Mitoy added, “E sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Bossing medyo magkakaroon daw ako ng Showtime.’ Sabi niya, ‘Ok ‘yun!’ Tsaka sitcom, ‘E ‘di ayos!’”
 
Because the first three of his past TV appearances are on GMA, Mitoy is in effect a Kapuso who has become a Kapamilya.
 
It will be recalled that after congratulating the former Dabarkads for winning in “The Voice,” veteran host Joey De Leon shared via Twitter that Mitoy appeared with Vic in other  comedy shows, including “Ful Haus” on GMA-7 and “H3O: Ha Ha Ha Over!” on QTV Channel 11 (now GMA News TV).
 
 
Although he’s not yet sure whether he’s going to be a co-host or a resident “hurado” (judge) on “It’s Showtime,” Mitoy announced that he’s about to go onboard next month.
 
“Hindi ko alam kung anong gagawin sa’kin e. Pero ‘yun ang sabi [na makakasama ko.] Kahit na propsman siguro pwede na. (laughs) Malaki naman ang katawan ko e!”
 
Once a Dabarkad, always a Dabarkad?
 
The former Draybers band member appreciates the “silent” support he’s getting from “Eat Bulaga.”
 
“Wala naman kaming masamang tinapay e. Kaya alam kong sinusuportahan nila ko kahit hindi ko nakikita.”
 
Mitoy shared that he personally thanked Joey at the Aliw Awards ceremony where he (Mitoy) was named Best Male Performer in Hotels, Music Lounges and Bars.  

“Napatunayan ko lang na sinusuportahan nila ko nang ipagtanggol na ako ni Sir Joey sa tweets ng mga kumakalaban o mga kumekwestyon. Kaya napatunayan ko nang hindi ako pinabayaan ng dabarkads.”
 
Meanwhile, apart from P2 million cash, an Asian tour and a brand-new car, Mitoy’s “The Voice” victory entitles him to a four-year recording contract with MCA Music.
 
And although his first single has yet to be released,  Mitoy’s winning pieces in “The Voice” are now available to the public via MCA Music-SMART Music deal.
