Former Sexbomb Jopay Paguia and fellow dancer Joshua Zamora, who used to be with another popular dance group, The Manoeuvres, are having a Christian wedding in June.
“It will be a simple garden wedding to be officiated by a pastor. Vintage ang theme. Color motif is beige,” Jopay told Yahoo Philippines in a phone interview in between her wedding preparations.
The future bride added that another former Sexbomb dancer, Ira, will be part of the wedding entourage.
No wedding jitters
Jopay said she has no wedding jitters because she and Joshua have been sweethearts for nine years. They got engaged last year.
“Pareho kaming kalog,” she relates.
Joshua’s proposal, like their wedding, was simple.
“Nangyari 'to habang nagdi-dinner kami. “
Jopay also relates that thanks to Joshua's influence, she herself has become a Christian.
"Nag-umpisa ako nung nag-aattend ako ng services nila."
Both have long gone solo as dancers.
Appeal on behalf of dancers
Jopay, who now appears in the gag show “Banana Split”, hopes to have more projects.
“Maliit lang ang sahod ng dancers. Pero sila ang nagbibigay ng effort sa ikakaganda ng production (number). Hindi ito gaganda kung wala sila.”
She and Joshua recently joined a dance concert which featured their group, together with the Universal Motions Dancers’ (UMD) Wowie de Guzman and James Salas and others in a dance concert that launched Neurobion and Merck’s Neuropathy Awareness Movement at the Trinoma Atrium.
The event also served as a reunion for the Sexbomb, Manoeuvres and UMD.
