'Yung Gusto Mo Mag-Videoke Kaso May Anak Ka,' Here's How This Dad Reminded Parents Masaya Maging Magulang
  • A video of a dad wholeheartedly singing a nursery rhyme song in the videoke has gone viral for all the right reasons.

    In the video shared by Dorissa Solomon on Facebook on November 30, her husband Benjie Solomon can be seen singing his heart out with their son Liam. Turn the sound on, and you'll hear the Wheels On The Bus being sung like never before. 

    Her caption read, "Yung gusto mo mag videoke kaso may anak ka." 

    What made the video so heartwarming and shareable is not only the dad's humor but the joy that can be seen and felt in the little boy who seems to be enjoying his dad's performance. 

    "Sana gamitin ka ni Lord para maging eye-opener sa lahat ng mga magiging tatay at tatay na, na masarap maging tatay, masaya magpaka-tatay at rewarding ang pagiging tatay."

    The original video has been viewed over 3 million times as of writing.

    Parents in the comment section could relate, especially now that the videoke season aka Christmas parties and get-togethers is coming. Moms were tagging their husbands saying, "Alam na," and "Beh, dapat ganito. Hahaha!"

    In an exclusive interview with Smart Parenting, Mommy Dorissa shared the story behind the video. 

    "Gusto po kasi kumanta ni Daddy, kaso pinapatay ni baby yung speaker. Gusto ata mag-Cocomelon ni Liampot. Kaya para makakanta, nursery rhyme nalang kinanta ni Daddy. Win-win lang sila, haha!"

    Mommy Dorissa told Smart Parenting, she feels blessed that her husband is willing to compromise just to make their child happy. 

    "As a mom, I feel so blessed to get a partner in life na napaka-mapagmahal sa anak namin at syempre sa akin. Personally, I grew up without a dad. I was two months old nung naghiwalay parents ko, so I never had a father. Kaya sabi ko sa sarili ko, hindi ako papayag na maranasan ng anak ko ang naranasan ko. So I really prayed for the right person and God gave me Benjie."

    She continued, "Benjie is a loving dad to Liam. Mas madalas alagaan ni Benjie si Liam kaysa saan, gawa ng maka-ama talaga si Liam. Yung bonding nila iba. Si Benjie kasi he has a jolly personality at yun ata ang gusto ni Liam. Kasi parehas silang magulo, hehe."

    She revealed, Daddy Benjie is a very hands-on parent, despite his busy schedule as a civil engineering student. "I always feel happy whenever I feel the selflessness of Benjie. He always puts us on top of his priorities, lalo si Liam." 

    She added, "Sa weekends, lagi kami lumalabas, nagbobonding, naglalaro, kumakanta and so on."

    Mommy Dorissa shared, aside from videoke, Daddy Benjie sings his son to sleep. "Si Benjie lagi niya pinapatulog si Liam, kinakantahan niya. Yung favorite nila, yung Tulog na by Sugarfree."

    "My message to hubby, sana hindi ka magbago. Sana patuloy ka maging inspirasyon sa lahat ng tatay sa mundo, para mabawasan yung mga batang naiiwan ng mga tatay nila. Sana gamitin ka ni Lord para maging eye-opener sa lahat ng mga magiging tatay at tatay na, na masarap maging tatay, masaya magpaka-tatay at rewarding ang pagiging tatay."

    Dahil diyan, you get a score of 100, Daddy Benjie! You are an excellent singer / father!
