Jovit Baldivino unhappy with the Memes of him playing Basketball

Memes of Filipino singer Jovit Baldivino has recently been making the rounds on the Internet, which originated from a throwback picture of him playing with a basketball in 2011.

For some inexplicable reason, the original image that became a meme has resurfaced again and is somehow trending on social media.

“Nagpakuha po saakin si Jovit nung nasa batangas kmi Nathaniel Equila,” Jovit wrote in the caption of the photo. 

Netizens quickly turned his photo into a meme and made various imitations and edits of his signature pose in the photo. 

Here are just some of the memes from social media (Photos seen on Facebook):

Even popular YouTube vlogger CONG TV and Team Payaman joined in imitating the viral pose.

However, it seems that Jovit is unhappy with the memes when he replied to a fan through Messenger saying “di kayo nakakatuwa” with a smiley emoji.

It is still unclear whether the reply of the singer was edited or not.

Baldivino was the first winner of Pilipinas Got Talent in 2010 and won 2 million pesos cash. The singer used the cash prize from the competition to support his studies, and help support his family. He eventually studied Criminology at Batangas State University.
