Tekla rose to fame after becoming a contestant in popular Philippine game show Wowowin in 2016.
Tekla, 34, from North Cotabato, has been working as a stand-up comedian in Manila before his funny antics caught the attention of the show’s host, Willie Revillame, who offered him the chance to co-host the show.
Tekla was later dropped from the Wowowin hosting roster but has signed an exclusive contact under GMA Network Artist Centre that allowed him to appear in various TV entertainment shows like Sunday Pinasaya, Celebrity Bluff and The Tekla and Boobay Show.
