Pineda: Arjo Atayde’s ‘Bagman’

LIFE was so hard for a simple barber like Benjo (played by Arjo Atayde) in a 12-part series titled “Bagman” on IWant TV.

Lured for power and money, Benjo was forced to work for a crooked governor, his life is turned upside-down as he gets entangled in the dangerous world of politics and complex societal institutions.

Raymond Bagatsing plays the corrupt governor in this series.

Bagman is an action-drama series.

Aside from being a barber, Benjo had to do odd jobs to make both ends meet. His wife is pregnant and in order to provide for his wife and soon-to-be-child, he did a small mission to save his family.

Soon enough, because of the easy money he gets, he will become the governor’s bagman.

“Go with the flow po ako eh. I went with it, they gave me the character, direk gave me the freedom to do so, to create my own, to just go with it... basta I used my heart,” says Arjo.

Produced ng Dreamscape Digital at Rein Entertainment, “Bagman” will be joined a powerhouse cast consisting of: Alan Paule, Yayo Aguila, Chanel Latorre, and Raymond Bagatsing.

“I don’t want to be boxed... I’ll continue doing what I am doing and I’ll do every role I could.”

The first six episodes of “Bagman” is streaming for free which will be available on IWant TV which started last March 30. Three episodes will be streamed on March 27 and the last three episodes on April 3.

Talking about Arjo who’s been exclusively dating phenomenal star Maine Mendoza were seen at Star City wearing face masks. The lovey dovey couple were seen at the said Theme Park in Pasay City.

Arjo and Maine tried being low profiles, somehow, people still recognized them both. In video taken, Arjo was playing basketball hoops at the theme park.

The couple seems to enjoy their night especially after riding a Ferris wheel. If there is a will there is a way, this was proven by the couple.

Despite being on different networks and hectic schedules, they find quality time spending together. September 2018 was when the two became close. Arjo even attended Maine’s media launch on a brand endorsement.

The closeness became more intense, until Arjo admitted last January 19 that he and Maine are indeed “dating exclusively.” Mainer confirmed the issue on March 2.
