Black Nazarene Coco Martin
The 36-year-old Kapamilya actor is a known devotee of the Black Nazarene. He has been very vocal about how he owes his success to the Poong Nazareno. In an ABS-CBN report, Coco said that he used to pray for a steady and a good job to the Black Nazarene in Quiapo Church. He didn’t expect to be given more than what he prayed for. Everything that he has at the moment started with his prayers to the Black Nazarene. “Dati, ‘pag nagdadasal ako doon, ‘Bigyan niyo lang po ako ng trabaho, kahit ano, kahit hindi ninyo na ako patulugin. Tapos ibinigay niya lahat,” said the actor. From simple roles to movies, and now, to becoming a director of a movie he produced, which was an entry to the recent MMFF, Coco Martin’s devotion to the Black Nazarene simply never failed him.
