It was a wish come true to see Maverick, a good looking and talented young man all the way from Barcelona Spain despite his busy schedules meeting a lot of huge people in the show business, (Feeling like robbing his precious time for VIP’s in ABS-CBN network 😀
Maverick Silang Gomez was the 1st grand winner of TKCKAT Europe, among 15 contenders from France, United Kingdom, Spain and Italy held in September 2012, Acropolis South France. It was just another bonus for him to be brought here in the Philippines to compete in Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4, atop of his prize.Maverick, who’s mom was raised in Occidental Mindoro and who worked as Ama de Casa in Barcelona Spain– ladies who takes care of Royal families big houses has been there working for decades now.Born March 8, 1993, Maverick has started his dancing potential to be seen as early as about 7 years old, he started being an an urban dancer from the streets of Barcelona influenced by the rhythms and techniques of funk and hip-hop music.
He has a group then which was called Krump of Barna 18th street.He was also inspired by another dancing tandem Les Twins,identical twin brothers Laurent and Larry Bourgeois (born December 6, 1988) are French dancers, choreographers, and models who are known to be dancers and choreographers in France. His first exposure to public was when his manager, Louie Simbe thought of inviting him on Timpuyog ti Ilocano’s PASIKATAN, a Barcelona wide talent competition organized by the said group in Barcelona Spain where he won the grand prize. (Louie by the way is a friend of mine who is from Echague Isabela, in Cagayan Valley where my home town is.) That was when Filipinos in Spain started to be fanatic of Maverick.
Maverick, who has a stage name E-Twist (Earnest Twist) is really having an impressive dance moves with his body twisting and bending where ladies would really shout for joy watching him with love invading the dance floor. I haven’t seen him performing live though but I just watched some of his you tube videos, Please see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9FbjBzcmjE

At first glance, I already felt that he’s a down to earth person and really such an impressive man, from inside and out. He grew up in Spain so apparently we won’t be expecting him to speak in Tagalog that good, he speak a little but he really loves our language which is why he even bought a booklet with an English- Filipino translation on it just for him to learn bit by bit Filipino. I even burst to laughfter when I saw that it was a booklet for nursery kids lol 😀 His mom, Tita Elizabeth is also a lady who has a kind heart and you can feel how warm she is at our first meeting. 🙂
I would like to thank my friend Karen Joy Salvador who was also an angel to me who made a way for me to meet Maverick and his manager Louie. It was nice meeting Tita Elizabeth too! Let’s just watch out for Maverick’s next battles on Pilippine TV and expect that he will be loved by his fans as he has a humble heart who would love to just entertain people. He would love his fans to be called as E-Twisters, and I myself is proud to be an E-Twister! I am also inviting you to please like his page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Etwisters
Please keep liking! Maverick says thanks all for the support! 🙂
