MarNigo is quickly gaining a lot of attention lately making them one of the newest love teams to watch out for. But, did you know that the MarNigo ship has already been quietly sailing since 2014?

Back in 2014, Piolo Pascual entered the Big Brother house and spent some time with the housemates. The then 16-year-old Maris Racal was one of them. She scored a duet with Papa P and the two sang Yeng Constantino’s “Hawak Kamay” together. An obviously smitten Papa P remarked, “gusto mo hintayin yung anak ko? Magka-edad kayo. Musikero din yun.”


Since it was televised, the whole nation witnessed this cute potential father-in-law/daughter-in-law moment. But, what most people don’t know is that Inigo introduced himself to Maris (on Twitter) later on.

But wait, there’s more! During their guesting on Gandang Gabi Vice, the two shared their first actual meeting at the set of the primetime soap “Hawak Kamay” (what a coincidence, right?). Let’s just say it was a very awkward one full of taguan and tuksuhan.


And now, years later, MarNigo fans couldn’t be happier to see this ship officially sailing. 3 years in the making, you guys! And while the two are insisting that they’re just very good friends right now, we can’t help but think that they will become a reel-to-real couple when the right time comes. You want proof? Watch this clip and listen to their original compositions (about each other!)


Truly a match made in music heaven!
