In a previous interview, the Comedy Island star shared that she financially supported her father’s education.  

“Diba po ang sarap bumili ng gamit na pinagtrabahuhan? Ang sarap din makita ang tatay mo na nakapagtapos nang dahil sa 'yo,” she said. Oneal finally graduated in college in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in business management.

Fans and content creators sent their greetings in the comments section.

"Congrats!!" Sassa Gurl wrote.

"[W]aaaaaaah cutie congrats tito," Zeinab Harake commented.

"[A]ng galing nang papa mo, imbis na sa luho niya binili ang mga napag hirapan mo, ginamit niya sa pag aaral. Congrats sainyo, napakag tapos ka nang bachelors at masteral," a social media user wrote.

In an interview with Karen Davila in 2021, Oneal shared why he chose to return to his studies.

"Iba kapag may aral. Iba 'yung nakapag graduate ka. Ayaw ko din naman [dumating sa point] 'yng mga anak ko [ganoon]," he said.
