  • Sharon Cuneta expressed her grief after she found out that her impersonator, Ate Shawee, passed away last Monday.

    In a lengthy Instagram update on Tuesday, the Megastar reposted a video compilation of Ate Shawee’s photos.

    Sharon said she was shocked to know that her “official and favorite impersonator,” whose real name was Marvin Martinez, had passed away because she was hardly on social media since May when she was in the US. She got back to the Philippines just this month.

    “I had deliberately, totally ignored my Philippine phones in the US and enjoyed the radio silence using only my US phone. I hardly checked all my social media platforms and went on them to post. Then, [I] rarely read and [replied] to some of your comments. So it was a SHOCK to me to find out that my official and favorite impersonator, Marvin, our Ate Shawee, had been sick and passed away,” Sharon wrote.

    “Sincerely, deeply am [I] affected by his passing. I appreciated and adored Marvin and in those lean years of my career when I was too fat to work, seriously even worried about what Marvin would be able to do impersonating me and getting any jobs at all. Now he is gone.”

    The actress offered her deepest condolences to Ate Shawee’s family and friends and shared how painful her death was to her and her fans, the Sharonians.

    “Mahal na mahal ko si Marvin at wala akong kamalay-malay kahit nung may sakit siya dahil I was in ‘escape mode’ for peace kahit sandali lang sa Amerika,” Sharon said.

    [I love Marvin so much and I had no idea that he was sick because I was in “escape mode” for my peace, even for a short amount of time in America.]
    “I love you and always will, my Ate Shawee, my Marvin,” she said.

    “Maraming salamat sa pagmamahal, marespetong pagganap sa akin at pagpapaligaya sa aming lahat. Mamimiss kita talaga. May God bless and embrace your loved ones through this most difficult time.”
    [Thank you so much for the love, for impersonating me with respect and for making all of us happy. I will really miss you.]

    Ate Shawee died July 26 due to liver cirrhosis “with complications.” She was 45 years old. ( K. Malig/RC, GMA News)
