BAMBOO Compares Self To KOBE!

Bamboo Ma±alac has had quite a journey in his music career. Initially he was the frontman for Rivermaya and Bamboo, before moving on to become a solo artist.

Along the way he has produced hit song after hit song and earned recognition with his former bands. His solo album has reached gold status!

In a recent press conference, the singer/songwriter revealed he saw some similarities between him and our recent Manila visitor, NBA superstar Kobe Bryant.

"He's been champion. He's been this and that. Now, it's not a personal thing for him," said "The Voice of the Philippines" coach.

He added that Kobe wasn't known to be a team player and was all about personal accolades, but has now "evolved, elevated himself".

"He understands everything better. Maybe I can say... I've come to that point na din na parang medyo klaro lahat na."

The LA Lakers superstar was in Manila yesterday to promote a mobile phone brand. 

Bamboo is set to appear on stage with Pop Rock Princess Yeng Constantino on their major concert called "BY Request Bamboo and Yeng Constantino Live". 

This awesome collaboration will be happening on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum.
