Is Puregold teasing the year’s panalo collab of the Philippines’ biggest music artists?

Social media has been on fire speculating about Puregold collaborating with the hottest names in the local music scene. The buzz started after Puregold made two teaser posts on their social media this past April 12th that seemed to hint at an announcement involving major Pinoy pop artists.

The first post from that morning showed the following letters flashing on screen: SL, SB, FG, and BN. Finally, the following letters settled on the screen: GRFSB. These same letters were also in the video’s official title, #Puregold_GRFSB. This first video made it clear what those letters meant: Get ready for something big!

Later that day, another post would drop that provided more clues. Once again, labeled #Puregold_GRFSB, this time the post offered glimpses of multiple silhouetted figures. A close look at the video showed four images: three groups and a singular figure. The video ended by promising more to come in May 2024.

Luckily for curious fans and followers, Puregold served more.

On April 17, a video snippet of a song from the band SunKissed Lola was released. Best known for their hit song “Pasilyo” with over 204 million streams on Spotify alone, SunKissed Lola is now officially the first announced band to be part of this major music venture from Puregold.

Fans of the band were thrilled to find that the snippet teased brand new original music from SunKissed Lola. Even from just the 20 seconds shared in the video, it’s clear that fans will have much to look forward to when SunKissed Lola drops an original new song in collaboration with Puregold.

With lyrics like “Burahin ang anumang duda sa sarili mo,” the song promises to be an uplifting and inspiring anthem about confidence and believing in one’s self. Already, this teaser has given a glimpse of the always “panalo” vibe that Puregold has always put out through its various forms of marketing campaigns.

Seems like Puregold is looking to accomplish something massive in this music collaboration. Music fans all over the country are already waiting with bated breath for further announcements and confirmations about which artists will be next to link up with the retailer.

Every step I've taken towards my dream is a step I've taken with purpose," Wayne shares, reflecting on his humble beginnings and the drive that has propelled him forward.

His journey into the performing arts began in the halls of his junior high and high school, where he shined in choir, vocal jazz groups, plays, and competitive dance. His talent and dedication led him to join the renowned Sikat dance company, bringing Canadian dance to the world stage. Yet, Wayne's ambitions stretched beyond the dance floor. After a brief career as a medical technician, Wayne's passion for the arts reignited, propelling him toward a new destiny in Manila, encouraged by none other than Filipino celebrity Enrique Gil.

"Manila has been a canvas for my dreams, a place where every opportunity I've seized has shaped me into the artist I am today," Wayne states, emphasizing the transformative power of the city and the entertainment industry on his career.

His foray into music with the 1:43 boyband saw the release of hits like "Pasensya Na" and "Ikaw Na Nga Talaga," the latter becoming the OST for Coleen Garcia's movie "Mia." His transition into acting and TV presented opportunities to dance on ASAP with GFORCE and to star in viral branded short films, showcasing his versatility and magnetic screen presence.

Wayne's success extends into hosting, where his charisma and eloquence have illuminated events such as the Miss Universe Philippines pageant, numerous corporate gatherings, and brand launches. "Hosting allows me to connect with people, to share moments of joy and celebration. It's a role I cherish deeply," he explains, highlighting the personal fulfillment he finds in his hosting engagements.

Moreover, Wayne's influence as a content creator has seen him collaborate with prestigious brands like Jollibee, San Miguel, and Lacoste, highlighting his knack for creating compelling narratives that resonate with audiences across various platforms. His campaigns with Catriona Gray for San Miguel and multiple projects with Jollibee underscore his appeal and versatility.

DAYO streaming on Vivamax this April 19

When home no longer feels like home, where do you go to feel that you belong?

In “Dayo”, a film by Sid T. Pascua and screenplay by Quinn Carrillo, we follow the story of a woman who just wants a new environment and a simple life, but trouble somehow finds her wherever she goes.

Rica Gonzales plays Elsa, a dancer in a club in Manila, where corrupt and cruel men abound. Tired of this lifestyle, and dissed by her family for having such job, she finds the courage to leave everything behind.

Her best friend Aya (Audrey Avila) has convinced her to stay with her in La Union, where no one knows about her past and will not judge her. Elsa finds work as a waitress in a resort, and for the first time, she actually feels free. Falling in love is the last thing on her mind, but even that becomes possible in her new life.

Calvin Reyes plays Eddy, a tricycle driver. He’s the first man to make Elsa feel loved. While she was used to sex before, this time she sees it as lovemaking, because Eddy doesn’t make her feel dirty, but adored. With Eddy, she no longer feels like an outsider in La Union. She’s found her new home.

But Eddy is not completely the decent man Elsa thinks he is. He is involved in something illegal and one wrong move puts his life in danger. To make it worse, the man Eddy is indebted to is someone from Elsa’s past.

Is there still a place out there where Elsa can be with Eddy and be at peace?

Elevator starring Paulo Avelino and Kylie Verzosa showing this April 24, 2024

Viva Films, Studio Viva, Rein Entertainment, and Cineko Productions join forces for the romantic-comedy film ‘Elevator’ starring Paulo Avelino and Kylie Verzosa, in cinemas on April 24. Written and directed by Philip King, the movie will show us that love is found in the most unexpected places sometimes.

Paulo is Jared, an elevator attendant at a hotel-casino complex in Singapore. He has ambitious dreams, so he is also developing an innovative app for Filipino migrant workers. He pitches his concept to affluent businessmen he encounters in the elevator, hoping to entice them into investment. Despite his relentless efforts, he always gets rejected.

Until he meets Byron (Adrian Pang), a Singaporean businessman who expresses interest to be his investor. But before sealing the deal, he wants Jared to enhance his proposal with Bettina, another OFW who works as Byron’s secretary.

Kylie plays Bettina, who initially seems ill-tempered and dismissive towards Jared. They spend a lot of time working together and soon, they grow closer. They deepen their connection as they share their hopes and dreams to each other. Jared finds himself falling for her, even if Bettina once reminded him that he is not allowed to fall in love with her. Bettina also happens to be Byron’s lover, that’s why. Uh-oh.

Jared is suddenly at a crossroads of love and ambition: will he fight for his blossoming love for Bettina or his dreams of a better future?

The ‘Elevator’ cast and crew filmed for 10 days in Singapore, where 90% of the scenes took place. Its producers, Lino Cayetano and Shugo Praico, shared that they also partnered with Singaporean production outfit Dogma Films for the movie.

In an interview with the press, the director and producers mentioned how lucky they feel working with the cast. Direk Philip commended Paulo’s dedication to his role. “May sinasabi siya na ‘pwede bang gawing ganito?’ Nagulat kami na parang ganun si Paulo. Parang we saw a different layer into the character [he] brought in,” he said.

From leading-man roles to offbeat and dark characters, Paulo has showcased his versatility in the industry, having earned Best Actor accolades from prestigious events such as the 35th Gawad Urian Awards (‘Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa’) and the 46th Metro Manila Film Festival (‘Fan Girl’).

Direk Philip also expressed his hopes of showing Kylie’s different side through ‘Elevator.’ “There’s no need to force sexuality out of Kylie kasi naturally it oozes out of her,” he shared. “Baka nga people will be surprised of how she is here.”

Kylie first gained prominence when she won the Miss International 2016 crown. From being a titleholder, she eventually dabbled and found success in acting. She was hailed Best Actress at the 2022 Distinctive International Arab Festivals Awards for her performance in the movie ‘The Housemaid.’

Praico also had nothing but praises for Adrian, an accomplished Singaporean actor who plays a pivotal role in the film. “Magaling. So professional. Masarap katrabaho,” he stated.

When the official trailer for ‘Elevator’ was released on March 20, netizens enthusiastically showed their excitement and support, racking up 1 million views on social media in just 10 hours. It also features Kylie’s memorable line, “Bawal kang ma-in love sa’kin” which resonated with a lot of hopeless romantics. With such overwhelming anticipation, it’s poised to become one of the much-awaited films this summer.

Rounding out the cast are Chai Fonacier, Shrey Bhargava, Shahid Nasheer, Shaun Lim, Rishi Vadrevu, and Amy Cheng. ‘Elevator’ promises to bring not just a charming romance, but also a heartwarming story about migrant workers that will surely strike a chord with Filipino audiences. Arriving in cinemas on April 24.
