“I feel really good. I’ve been waiting to perform, and I’ve been waiting to meet up with you guys like this. I don’t know how I spent the last two years without meeting everyone and just being home with my cats. I’m really happy that everything came back to normal, almost,” said BamBam during his press conference on Thursday, July 28, at Ayala Malls Manila Bay.

‘Ngiti’
BamBam was eager to honor an old promise he made to his Filipino fans. He recalled how, in one of his past shows in Manila, he vowed that he would come back to sing a cover of “Ngiti” by Ronnie Liang.

“My first time, when I came to Manila, I was singing a song called ‘Ngiti’. You guys really loved it.” The singer assured his fans that he would sing it again at the 2022 K-POP Masterz in Manila, a one-night concert held Friday, July 29 at the Mall of Asia Arena, where he performed alongside TREASURE and fellow GOT7 member Jackson Wang.

“It’s gonna be the best show that you’ll see this year, I’ll say that,” he added.

After clips of BamBam’s “Ngiti” performance in 2022 K-POP Masterz in Manila went viral on social media, Ronnie Liang thanked the Thai idol for performing his track.
