Zeinab Harake said that she had to apologize to a number of celebrities, including Alex Gonzaga, Robi Domingo, Sanya Lopez, Donnalyn Bartolome, and Jelai Andres, after pageant producer and businessman Wilbert Tolentino mentioned her in yesterday’s explosive vlog.
“Bago ako nag-live, tinawagan ko si Alex. Nag-sorry ako sa kanya. Sinabi ko sa kanya ‘yung rate na ‘yun dahil ‘yun ‘yung sinabi ni Mamshie,” Zeinab stated in the 56-minute live video she broadcast on October 23 night.
Throughout the almost hour-long video, she addressed to Tolentino alternately as “mamshie” and “sir.”
“Pero nakausap ko si Ate Alex that moment na sabi niya ayaw niya ng collab dahil ayaw niya nagbabayad. Hindi naman lahat ng vloggers ganyan. Ako kailangan ko kaya pasensya na po. Hindi ako mukhang pera, nagtra-trabaho lang ako,” She continued.
On the same evening, Tolentino published a vlog titled “Ang Rebelsyon” in which he identified the vlogger and disclosed parts of their private chats. Numerous mails discussed their intended collaborations and the prices or rates of the artists/personalities mentioned. The mails also disclosed Zeinab’s opinions towards a certain musician/celebrity.
“Pangalawa, kay Donna. Sabi ni Wilbert, tina-trash talk daw kita. Kung anu-ano. Malabo ‘yan. Alam ng lahat kung gaano ko kamahal si ate Donna at alam ni ate Donna kung gaano ko s’ya kamahal. Hinding-hindi ko gagawin sa kanya ‘yun, “added Zeinab, alluding to Viva artist and YouTuber Donnalyn Bartolome.
She then addressed her close friend, fellow vlogger, and occasional actor Jelai Andres, as well as Ivana Alawi, a vlogger-turned-actress and current star of the daytime drama opera “A Family Affair.”
“Si Ivana tinawagan ko rin. May naging prior problems kami 12:00. Parang nasira ako sa kanya kaya in-unfollow niya ako. May erroneous info kasi nakarating kay Ivana pero napag-usapan na namin. Okay na kami. Kausap ko rin sya bago mag-live. Humingi din ako ng sorry,” The vlogger was disclosed.
She reported that these women told her that they recognize her. She also highlighted Whamos, Toni Fowler, and Makagago, who were all featured in Tolentino’s vlog.
In addition, the actors Sanya Lopez and Robi Domingo were discussed. Robi said on Twitter a few hours after the vlog “Oh wow. How accurate!” Numerous Internet users feel that his message was connected to the Zeinab-Wilbert scandal.
“Wala akong hinihiling sa ibang tao na nadamay kundi pasensiya na kasi marunong akong humingi ng pasensya. Again, sa mga artists ko, pasensiya na. Sobrang apology, apology, apology,” Zeinab exclaimed.
Tolentino described how he and Zeinab became acquainted. They have been working together for some time. He even described Zeinab as a mentor who assisted him with his own YouTube account.
He said that he posted his contentious video blog to clear his identity.
“Nakita nyo naman ang post ng aking mentor, si momshie Zeinab, maraming nagta-tag sa akin na ‘Wilbert user.’ Masakit para sa akin ‘yung pinost mo at pinabayaan mo na i-fiesta ang pangalan namin. At lahat kami, damay-damay. Gusto ko lang i-klaro ang batikos sa akin,” Tolentino added.
Zeinab, on the other hand, constantly stated that she was not referring to Tolentino in her contentious tweet. She said that only her friends were permitted to view and comment on the private post.
“October 13, 2022 post ako. 21 comments from friends because this is a friends-only post. Post na ‘yun ay hindi regarding sa kanya, sa kanila. Mamatay dude. Alam ‘yun ng mga tao sa paligid ko, na hindi ‘yun para sa kanila at may iba akong pinapatamaan doon,” Zeinab added.
She stated that she had been keeping a low profile in order to maintain her privacy and mental wellness.
“Hindi na ako nagsasabi ng ganito, ganyan sa vlog ko kasi pinipili kong maging private. Kaya ‘yung position ko, pinili ko siyang pang-general. In general ko siyang ginawa kasi hindi rin talaga ako nagra-rant ng 100 percent rant. No. 1 po doon, hindi ko siya pinapatamaan at hindi po sila yung pinapatamaan ko,” She emphasized.
Zeinab was noticeably trembling and her speech was stuttering for the majority of her live video.
She concluded her video by calling out her ex, the rapper Daryl Ruiz, well known by his stage name Skusta Clee.
“Daryl, sa’yo lahat nanggaling ito. Lahat ng nangyari [unintelligible] sa buong buhay ko, wala akong ibang sisisihin kung hindi ikaw. Ikaw lang. Alam mo ‘yan. Diyos na bahala at alam ng Diyos kung sino dapat karmahin dito,” Zeinab finished.
As of press time, neither Wilbert nor Zeinab’s social media accounts or channels have published any new vlogs or statements about this matter.
