Victor Basa, Inakala na pera ang magbibigay ng kaligayahan

Victor Basa testimony as a Christian

Victor Basa, dating nalumbay sa kawalan ng ama, sa utang, at droga

Si Victor Basa ay mula sa isang “second family.” Noon pa man, niinais na niyang patunayan na karapat-dapat siya sa apelyido na kanyang dinadala. Lawyer ang Dad ni Victor. Pinagbutihan niya ang pagaaral dahil inakala na niya na yun ang way para maging proud yung Dad niya sa kanya.

Sa gitna nito, syempre, naghahanap siya ng atensyon mula sa ama. “May mga things na hindi mo nahahanap sa bahay since I had an absentee father,” Victor said.

Dahil hindi niya ito maramdaman, kaibigan ang kanyang naging sandalan. Sumali siya sa frat until the point na hindi na siya pumapasok at na-kick out sa school.

NALULON SA DROGA.

One day millionaire

A friend invited Victor to watch a fashion show at dito siya nakita ng isang agent na naghahanap ng mga model. Soon he was in showbiz. Ang sabi sa kanya ni Mr. M, “Sa showbiz, yung culture, kapag dumating ka sa set na ito yung dinadala mong kotse, ayun din yung trato sayo.”

Dahil dito, nagsipag si Victor, pero ang naging inspiration niya ay upang makabili mga luho. “Yung term na ‘one day millionaire,’ bili ka ng kotse, gimik ka, bili ka ng mga damit na maganda, kasi magagamit naman sa shoot,” ito ang inisip ni Victor to justify his lifestyle.

Kabayaran sa kayabangan

Kayod kalabaw si Victor, hindi dahil mahal niya ang showbiz, pero dahil marami siyang binabayaran tulad ng kotse, mga damit, at kung ano-anong gamit. “Life’s good,” yun ang gusto niyang i-project sa lahat. Sa sobrang kalibangan, na realize niya na walang meaning ang lahat ito.

Na-realize ni Victor ang lahat ng bagay ay may kapalit. “I start working, not because you love the craft, but because may utang ka sa kayabangan mo.”

May kulang pa rin

Nagsimulang magbago ang pananaw ni Victor ng mayroon siyang friend who committed to suicide. Doon niya narealize na life is short at kailangan niya na magbago. May malaking kulang sa buhay niya. “Nag change ako ng lifestyle, di na ko umiinom, nag-triathlon ako, but there was still something missing,” sabi niya.

Ang pangakong pagbabago napako dahil nagkaroon ng problema sa kanyang five years live-in relationship partner. “It was a very tough break-up for me.” Matapos ito, Victor started going out again, drinking, sleeping around, which is one of the most regretful things that he did.

He also started doing drugs. “Kasi when you’re in that situation, parang okay lang, kasi everyone is doing it naman. Okay lang naman. I can control it,” sabi ni Victor.

Merry Christmas!

Umakyat si Victor sa Baguio to get some peace and quiet and listen to his inner voice. Inisip niya kung ano ang gagawin niya sa buhay. Then, mayroong kaibigan na nagpadala ng message, “Merry Christmas!”

Nagkausap sila about faith and soon after, Victor was invited to attend a Christian church. “I went there, I wanted to criticize it.” Nakarinig siya ng sermon ni Pastor Bong at doon siya nagsimulang makinig.

Dahil sa kagustuhan na magbago, nagpatuloy si Victor sa pag-attend sa CCF. “I really think religiosity is what got me in the door – but it was the person of Christ that made me stay.”

“Love others more than yourself”

Dating makasarili si Victor. “For example, kapag nagco-collect ako ng payment, kapag late, kulang na lang awayin ko na talaga. Kasi feeling ko napaka-entitled ko.”

Ngunit nabago noong nagsimula siyang maging Christian at magutom sa salita ng Panginoon. “The Lord actually speaks that to us, you should love others more that you love yourself.”

God can change people, and give you a new life.

Victor is part of a ministry in Christ Commission Fellowship (CCF). They help “specially-abled kids,” those within the autism spectrum and ADHD.

He has a younger brother who has autism and joining the ministry made them closer. “Mas naging patient ako, he also changes yung pinaka-priorities mo because hindi mo na kailangan mag-impress ng tao. God can change people and give you a new life!”

In 2019, Josh (Victor Basa) became part of the Kaibigan movie starring the Perkins Twins. He was the older brother of David (Jesse Perkins), who encouraged him and gave moral advice. In the same year, Victor married his non-showbiz sweetheart, Stephanie Pe Dan, founder of Happy Plant Co.
