Mr. Pastillas Richard Parojinog is now ‘Chard Ocampo’


The son of fugitive Ardot Parojinog has dropped his birth name and took a new one just in time for the launching of his new single.

Richard Parojinog, son of former Ozamiz City Councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog, recently unveiled a new screen name. Richard, now “Chard Ocampo”, has dropped his last name just in time for the launching of his new single, Pa’no Na Ba. The TV personality had been attending voice workshops under ABS-CBN workshops, along with his cousin, Tawag ng Tanghalan finalist Fron Vasquez. He rose to fame from his stint as Mr. Pastillas at noontime show It’s Showtime.

His dad, who’s been facing charges for illegal firearms possession, was arrested last May 2018 in Taiwan, after 10 months of hiding. His dad is the younger brother of slain Ozamiz Mayor Reynaldo “Aldog” Parojinog, who was linked to illegal drugs by President Rodrigo Duterte.
