Daniel Padilla is Nick’s Global Slime Star

Manila Bulletin - - Entertainm­ent News - By MB EN­TER­TAIN­MENT

Teen King Daniel Padilla has been named Nick­elodeon’s Global Slime Star, the the first Filipino celeb to snag the ti­tle.

The an­nounce­ment of the win, made through the in­ter­na­tional tele­vi­sion net­work’s of­fi­cial Face­book page, came with a 30-sec­ond video show­ing Daniel get­ting slimed.

“A very spe­cial thanks to Nick­elodeon Asia for nom­i­nat­ing me for this honor, and my fans from Nick Asia who voted for me. Let’s do this!” the teen ac­tor said be­fore hav­ing the green goo poured on him. He added, “Thank you to ev­ery­one around the world for choos­ing me to be slimed.”

Daniel bested YouTube star Jamie Curry, Brazil­ian singer Luan San­tana, and bands CD9 and Union J World.

The win­ner was iden­ti­fied with the num­ber of times his hash­tag was tweeted (in Daniel’s case #SlimeDanie­lKCA).

The young ac­tor was un­able to at­tend the awards night held at the Fo­rum in In­gle­wood, Cal­i­for­nia on March 28 as he was in the midst of the “One Mag­i­cal Night” US Tour.

He was also nom­i­nated for Fa­vorite Asian Act at the Nick’s Kids Choice Awards but lost to In­done­sian group JKT48. Daniel’s mother, Karla Estrada, cheered up his son’s dis­ap­pointed fans.

“Guys its ok !!! Bong­gaaa na ang manom­i­nate! And lets be thank­ful na may na­panalo parin tayo!” she wrote on Twit­ter.

Daniel was re­cently hailed Fa­vorite Male Artist at the MYX Mu­sic Awards. His song '”Sim­pleng Tu­lad Mo” was also named Fa­vorite Song.
