When it was announced that Ces Drilon was looking for a co-host for her show on the livestreaming app Kumu, social media went abuzz with netizens quickly nominating Gardo Versoza.

They were thrilled for the possible meet-up iconic characters “Stress Drilon” and “Haggardo Versoza” at least virtually on the digital space.
