Elmo Magalona transfers to ABS-CBN


The 21-year-old actor-rapper and former GMA-7 artist Elmo Magalona, son of Philippine rap icon Francis Magalona, has transferred to rival network ABS-CBN.

In a presscon after his contract signing with ABS-CBN executives, Elmo clarified speculations that he made the big switch because he felt neglected in his former home network, GMA-7.

Without going into details, he maintained that he has no bad blood with GMA-7 after he decided to transfer to ABS-CBN.

Dreamscape said Elmo’s first project in ABS-CBN is a series with teen actress Janella Salvador titled “Born for You.”

Elmo starred in various GMA shows, including “More Than Words,” “Sunday All Stars,” “Genesis,” “Villa Quintana,” “Together Forever,” “Tweets for my Sweet,” and “Bantatay.”
