MANILA – The original creator of the Youtube sensation Auntie B has finally revealed his face.

Addo Selga did this by letting off the face filter which he usually uses in his videos during his interview on “Magandang Buhay” which aired on Wednesday.

Selga’s clips made the rounds online because of his witty quarantine tips in the Ilocono dialect while using an undetectable face filter.

In real life, he is based in Norway working at a nursing home.

“Sobrang hirap [malayo sa pamilya]. Sila naman ang inspiration ko kung bakit ako nandito sa Norway. Kaya ako pumunta dito para sa kanila. Kung hindi naman para sa family ko, hindi naman talaga ako lalayo ng Pilipinas. Pero sa hirap nga ng buhay, napilitan ako na lumayo,” he said.

Although they are miles apart, Selga is thankful for technology because he gets to keep in touch with them all the time.

Selga also shared the COVID-19 situation in his area in Norway.

“Nagwo-work po ako sa nursing home dito. Sa town namin mismo, may positive na rin kami ng COVID, hindi lang po namin alam kung saan. Naka-quarantine naman po sila. Dirediretso pa rin po kasi hindi naman po pwedeng walang mag-alaga sa mga alaga namin. 'Yung mga alaga ko matatanda,” he said.

Amid this crisis, he only has this to say to his family and fellow Filipinos.

“Kagaya ng mga videos na ginagawa ko, ang daming pwedeng pagkaabalahan. Huwag tayong malungkot. Tayong mga Pilipino, malilikot ang isip kaya madaming pwedeng gawin,” he said.

“Sa family ko naman, sabi ko sa kanila na importante pa rin 'yung social distancing. Kahit maliit 'yung bahay namin, hiwa-hiwalay talaga sila,” he added.
