Ai-Ai delas Alas officially announced to the public her resignation as talent manager of Ex Battalion on May 15 at an intimate gathering with selected traditional and digital media.
According to her, she just waited for the Viva film S.O.N.S. to be shown and eventually decided to let go of the group after. It’s been long-standing speculation that she really wanted to let go of the group, but since she and the boys (Ex B) still has a movie, she had to find the right timing. It was out of decency for the production outfit. Since the movie was already released, she thought it’s time to bid farewell and severe her ties with them.
“Di ko na kaya ang stress. Di ko na kaya ang mga ginagawa nila,” shares delas Alas as somewhat a peek to what she has gone through in being the manager of the said group. “Ayaw ko nang madamay in case meron silang mga gagawin ulit na mga hindi maganda sa career nila, kaya magku-quit na ako para tahimik na rin ang buhay ko at hindi na ako ma-stress.”
She further reveals that it’s the way the group treats her, “Minsan walang respeto. Hindi nila ako sinusunod.”
The last straw she had to endure for the group was when they decided not to proceed in performing at the last grand rally of senatorial candidate Bong Go. According to her, Daryl Borja Ruiz, known professionally as Skusta Clee, didn’t want to take part in the gig then another member Mark Maglasang as Bosx1ne also disappeared and quit the group.
“Nahihiya rin ako sa mga tao na nau-oohan ko tapos biglang ayaw na nila.”
Her contract with them as a talent manager is two years, but she couldn’t wait for the contract to end anymore and had to cut it short only for a year and two months.
