Joey 'Pepe' Smith suffers a stroke

Pinoy Rock Joey 'Pepe' Smith suffered a stroke on Tuesday, November 14, 2017.

The 69-year-old rockstar came from the GMA Studios in Quezon City to try and plug his upcoming concert in "Wowowin".

"We left GMA around 7 p.m. and stopped for dinner. Around 11 p.m., malapit na nga kami sa subdivision niya, tapik siya sa akin nang tapik. Paglingon ko, bagsak na yung mukha niya. Ni-rush ko na siya sa opsital," Smith's manager Mark de Leon tells GMA News Online.

Smith is currently in the stroke unit of Metro Antipolo Hospital, where his daughter Queenie, manager de Leon, and event promoter Dudee Alfonso are waiting for updates for his neurologist.

Smith was going to headline the first Pepe Smith Rockfest scheduled on November 18 at Amoranto Stadium. — LA, GMA New
