LONDON: Singer Enrique Iglesias says his father Julio taught him how to charm fans.

Iglesias enjoys talking to fans and posing with his female fans. He claims he learnt that from his dad — a famous singer himself — when he was a kid, reports. He said, “I consider myself a very affectionate person. I personally would never stand around for seven hours waiting for my pop idol to turn up. But that’s why, when fans do just that, the least I can do is reward them. I learned this from my father, who has always treated his fans with the greatest respect and as equals. There are no two ways about it. You have to spoil your fans because without them, you’re nothing. By the time I left home at the age of 18 there was nothing I needed to ask (my father). I’d learned it all growing up as a child by his side.”
