The long wait is over for Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes as his hard work has finally paid off upon completing his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration major in Marketing from the West Negros University in Bacolod City, Philippines last Sunday (March 23).

Dingdong also received a special citation for being their batch’s Ambassador of Goodwill. Despite his busy schedule in showbiz, Dingdong still managed to give priority to his studies. The momentous event of his life was witnessed by his parents Sixto Z. Dantes and Ma. Angelita G. Dantes, his uncles Col. Edgar Dantes and Commodore Herby Escutin, his bestfriend Harvey Camposano, and his girlfriend and Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera.

“Alam mo, you really need to manage your time well. When you’re given assignments, kailangan matuto ka ring mag-sacrifice at mag-balanse kung alin ang dapat i-prioritize. Education is the solution. It is not enough to know what your goal is, you must know how to chase it – and chase it real damn well,” said Dingdong.

After his graduation, Dingdong plans to pursue the “One Chair, One Child” project of his Yes Pinoy Foundation and Lifeline Foundation Support Team, Inc. This aims to provide chairs to all students of a school in Iloilo City that was greatly affected by Typhoon Yolanda last year.

Aside from his Yes Pinoy project, the Kapuso Primetime King also gears up for his return on Primetime TV via Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real with Diamond Star Maricel Soriano and Kapuso Premier Drama Actress Lovi Poe soon. Ang Dalawang Ms. Real can be seen worldwide on GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.

“It is a dream come true for me to finally work with the Diamond Star and the opportunity to work with an award-winning actress like Lovi Poe on television. The combination of these two women makes my job more engaging as an actor,” he noted.
