While some of us wish of having at least one sibling, the “Bagani” star has a lot of us beat since he has nine. Each of Makigis’s siblings were given equally unique names by their parents. His siblings’ names are: Mayumi, Magiting, Maaya, Maliksi, Marikit, Mahinhin, Malambing, Maningning and Matikas. Their family is also expecting a baby who will soon bring additional joy to their large family!
Makisig’s eldest sister, Mayumi, is just as skilled at singing as her more famous brother. She once represented our country during the 13th World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) that was held in Los Angeles, California nine years ago.
In an interview with PEP, she revealed that their father would urge his kids to sing. This is what got her into singing, igniting her passion and leading her to join singing contests.
“Nung bata pa po kami, lagi na po talaga kaming pinakakanta nila daddy. Nung bata pa daw po ako nahiligan ko na kasi pag kumakanta daw po sila inaagaw ko yung mike, tapos lagi po kaming sumasali sa mga contest, tapos pag may mga audition po pumipila po kami kahit mahabang-mahaba.”
With such a huge support system, Mayumi and Makisig’s siblings will no doubt reach their life goals as well!
