Ed Sheeran definitely captured the hearts of his Filipino fans during his successful one night “Divide” concert tour, held at Mall of Asia concert grounds last Sunday, April 8. Thousands of Ed Sheeran fans collectively called “Sheerios” flocked the concert venue and had the best night of their lives as the British singer-songwriter serenaded them with some of his hit songs. Among those who were privileged to witness Ed perform live on stage was Jinkee Pacquiao, wife of politician and boxer Manny Pacquaio.
On her Instagram post, Jinkee shared her one-on-one encounter with the singer backstage.
She wrote, “It’s an honor to meet you Ed Sheeran”
Aside from having an opportunity to have a picture together with Ed, Jinkee took the chance to also give the celebrity-singer a gift.
Being the wife of one of the greatest professional boxers in history, Jinkee gave Ed a pair of her husband’s boxing gloves.
In her previous post on Instagram, Jinkee said that she couldn’t contain her excitement seeing the Grammy-winning singer perform live.
Aside from Jinkee, prominent celebrities such as Team Kramer, Gabbi Garcia, Carla Abellana, Dra. Vicki Bello, Judy Ann Santos, and many others also attended the said concert.
Moreover, right after the concert, Ed posted a photo of him along with his Filipino fans who attended his #DivideTourManila.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, he was quoted as to saying.
“Philippines is just—the passion that they have for music, there’s nowhere else in the world that has this sort of pandemonium and I love it. I love it. It really makes me feel special.”
In the next few days, Ed is set to conquer his Japanese fans as he is scheduled to perform in Osaka this April 11 as well in Tokyo on April 13 and 14.
