Sebastian ‘Baste’ Duterte has consistently shied away from the limelight, months after hids father was elected as the president.
Anna Pingol, the Yes Magazine’s managing editor had the opportunity to spend a day with Baste at the place of his hometown and where he comfortably lives, Davao City.
It was a day of firsts for the ever-elusive presidential son, who agreed to do an endorsement shoot for the first time.
Betchay Vidanes, Baste’s talent manager said that he is not after the big bucks.
Baste only approved of the deal with the topical analgesic brand because it aims to ‘extend real help’ to indigenous people in Mindanao.
‘Gusto niyang magamit ‘yong pagiging ‘son of the president’ niya sa magandang paraan.’
Baste is a family man. He has two kids. His first child is a 5-year-old girl, while his second is a one-year boy.
His 2 children have different moms. He has been living for about three years now with the mother of his second child, adding that he was still saving up for the wedding.
Aside from surfing, Baste plays the guitar and the drums and sings as well.
He entertained a huge crowd with two rock songs at Cebu Coliseum after the presidential debate in Cebu City last March 2016.
