Manila, June 25, 2018 – The Philippines’ fast-rising love team, Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber also known as MayWard, has graced the first-ever Tik Tok Meet and Greet Party held at the Robinsons Place Manila.
Maymay and Edward on Sunday showed their support to the 15 Tik Tok creators who made waves following the Talent ng Pilipino online audition. Maymay kicked off the #tunogngpilipino category, while Edward started off the #sayawngpilipino campaign. The contest also featured another category, the #artengpilipino.
The young stars, along with Tik Tok executives, handed out the Pilipinong Patok Award to the Top 3 most popular videos among the 15 finalists.
Dancer Sophia Zionne won third place and received Php10,000 prize. John Abelard Custodio was the first-runner up, winning Php20,000 for his funny #artengpilipino entry. Finally, the most popular video award went to Issey Miyake Parto who received Php30,000 after singing a snippet of “Tagpuan” by Moira dela Torre on Tik Tok.
MayWard also showed off their talent with their duet of “Baliw.” During their performance, they even reached out to their fans outside the event area.
MayWard brought cheer to Robinsons Place Manila for Tik Tok’s Meet and Greet Party.
Edward and Maymay took a photo with their fans, members of the media, influencers, and other guests at Tik Tok’s Meet and Greet Party.
Two lucky Tik Tokers also made their dreams come true when they got a once-in-a-lifetime chance to record a Tik Tok video with MayWard on the spot.
The pair also was generous enough to share some of their insights about Tik Tok.
“Huwag kang mahiya na i-express iyong sarili mo kasi baka sa Tik Tok doon mo makikita na ang galing mo pala at may talento ka pala [Don’t be shy to express yourself because you might realize that you are actually good and talented when you use Tik Tok],” Maymay said in Filipino.
“Iyong pinakadahilan kung bakit sobrang ganda ng Tik Tok kasi pwede mo i-express iyong sarili mo… Just have fun [The very reason why Tik Tok is really good because it allows you to express yourself... Just have fun],” Edward also said.
After their appearance for the event, the phrase “MAYWARD PATOK SA TIKTOK” trended on Twitter, not only in the Philippines but also worldwide—a feat not easy to achieve in the crowded social media platform.
