Celebrity Gives Php50k to Balloon Vendor, But Wants to Keep His Name a Secret

His plight went viral after a group of ‘tambays’, mostly minors, burned his balloons and caused burns all over his body, yet Oliver Rosales is now the recipient of kindness not just from Raffy Tulfo in Action but also from a celebrity who did not want his name to be announced on the show.

Because Oliver is still confined due to his wounds, his father Nicolas Rosales was the one called to the show. Raffy understands that the celebrity wants to keep his identity a secret but he also wanted the family to know so they can thank him. After all, it was a nice gesture.

The veteran broadcaster had some fun letting Tatay Nicolas and Oliver (on the phone) guess who this celebrity might be – and netizens all agree that the clues do point to Luis Manzano.

Aside from the Php50,000 from the celebrity, Oliver will also receive another Php50,000 from Raffy plus the Php17,500 that needs to be returned to the group’s parents who tried to give them money so they won’t file a case against the ‘tambays’ who burned him.

Here’s the video from Raffy Tulfo in Action:

Meanwhile, five of the seven ‘tambays’ who burned Oliver were presented to Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso. Netizens were quite angry to see them covering their heads in shame as they were presented to the media. Their parents were also covering their faces.

Many netizens said that they should not cover their faces because they were soooooo brave at the time they burned Oliver’s balloons that also led to him being confined at the medical facility for a still unknown number of days.

The poor vendor still feels pain in his arms and legs due to the burns! Such heartless ‘tambays’ who just did this for fun, not thinking what could happen to the vendor. It was a good thing there’s a CCTV camera in that spot.
