Singer-songwriter Maris Racal admitted that she prefers to work on solo projects for the meantime, rather than being teamed up with Iñigo Pascual.

The former PBB housemate clarified that her pair-up with Iñigo—known to their fans as MarNigo —was not really an official loveteam under their management.  

“To be honest hindi naman kami official talaga, like under management na may path talaga kami as a loveteam,” Maris explained during the press conference for her latest single “Abot Langit” last Tuesday, May 21.

Naging loveteam lang naman kami because of something na nag-blow up and then people were pushing us together. But solo naman talaga kami ever since, may mga projects lang na ginagawa together.”

When asked what she really prefers at the moment, she said: “I think doon po ako sa option na kung saan po ako mag-go-grow, ‘yong mas malawak ‘yong world.”

Maris also mentioned that it was a mutual decision to work separately as much as possible for their personal growth.

Ayaw lang namin na sobrang ‘yong mga tao sa paligid namin, hindi mapaghiwalay ‘yong idea of us together. Kasi mahihirapan din kami, like how will we grow? So the more na mas kayo, kayo, kayo. Hindi na mawawala sa isip nila.”

After a year of working together, The 21-year-old singer said that they wanted to pursue different career paths now.  

“Siguro like may changes na lang over one year kasi this time last year, loveteam, dami namin ganap together. Ngayon kasi, yon nga ‘yong sa first answer ko kanina na iba-iba kami ng gusto. Iba yung gusto niya, iba ang gusto ko. Let’s just accept this.”

Maris asked their fans to just support them in the things they wanted to do whether together or separately.

“Ang masasabi ko na lang dyan, sana ‘yong nagsu-support sa’min, support niyo na lang po ‘yong kung ano ‘yong ilalabas namin kasi kung magiging masyadong invested sila about sa relationship...You know, people change and then maraming natural changes na nangyayari. So dapat kelangan nakaka-keep up ka sa ganyan. Don’t get stuck sa idea na ganon.”
