The phenomenal AlDub of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza aka, Yaya Dub reportedly received a P20-million offer for a Valentine’s Day concert in 2016. The whooping amount offer purportedly came from former actor and now concert producer, Joed Serrano. If this Aldub Valentine’s Day show will materialize, it will be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
According to a report on Inquirer this Tuesday, November 10, the initial offer of Serrano is only for Alden Richards which he mentioned during a recent press conference for a separate concert. That time, the concert producer did not disclose the amount offer to the Pambansang Bae, adding that he is also open to produce concerts for other talents, including AlDub.

The paper said that Serrano confirmed to them that he is now discussing this matter to GMA talent center management that handles Alden, and that he is only waiting for their approval. Again, he did not specify the amount of his offer but noted that it is an “eight-digit” amount. This amount is likely to double to P20 million because he extended the offer to Maine Mendoza.
As we all know, the Aldub ‘Sa Tamang Panahon’ event at the 55,000-seater Philippine Arena last October 26 had an astonishing P14-million ticket sales, which all the proceeds to be used to build libraries in various public schools across the country. That event also broke Twitter records as the hashtag #AlDubEBTamangPanahon had more than 41 million tweets.

Alden and Maine are also known to be bankable product endorsers, having appeared in various TV commercials including that from McDonalds, as well as in giant billboards at EDSA and in fashion magazines. AlDub will also appear in the upcoming movie, “My Pabebe Love,” the MMFF 2015 film with Vic Sotto and Ai-Ai delas Alas and is expected to be a blockbuster hit.
Universal Records released a Special Edition of Alden Richards’ self-titled album last October, with the inclusion of AlDub theme song, his cover of Bryan White’s ‘God Gave Me You’. The album landed on Top 10 Billboard World Albums Chart. His ‘Wish I May’ album reached the Platinum Record status in less than a week after it was released, also in the same month.

On the other hand, Maine Mendoza had not yet released any album. Nevertheless, she has her own followers before she became Yaya Dub and was dubbed as the Dubsmash Queen of the Philippines. She sang a short line during the ‘Sa Tamang Panahon’ event and her singing voice is now slowly being heard at Kalyeserye, which many believe has a strong potential.
Joed Serrano is known in showbiz for producing blockbuster concerts for local and foreign artists. His previous show investments at the Smart Araneta Coliseum include Aiza Seguerra’s 25th year anniversary concert in 2012 titled ‘Bente Singko’ and Vice Ganda’s first major concert ‘May Nag-text’ back in 2010 and reportedly enjoyed a staggering P14-million ticket sales.

Meanwhile, TAPE (Television and Production Exponents Philippines Inc.) has proven its credibility in handling their talents, not to mention making history with their 36-year old noontime show, Eat Bulaga. But despite the huge success of AlDub today, some critics feel that the P20-million offer for them in a Valentine’s Day concert is a scary gamble for Serrano.
But for AlDub Nation (AlDub fans), an AlDub Valentine’s Day concert can give great ‘kilig’ moments and fun, especially if Lola Tinidora (Jose Manalo), Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola), and Lola Tidora (Paolo Ballesteros) will join them. As of posting, both Alden and Maine, as well as their talent managements have not yet commented on this reported hefty concert fee offer.
