Kapamilyas partied the night away while flexing their spirit of bayanihan!
Rock duo Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz, together with DJ MOD and more guest artists turned the 7th episode of “It’s Sharetime” into an electrifying party scene via virtual club.
The interactive donation drive “It’s Sharetime” is part of ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN Foundation’s “Tulong-Tulong Sa Pag-Ahon: Isang Daan sa Pagtutulungan” Operation Odette that raises funds for food, clean water, and hygiene kits for families affected by Typhoon Odette, and currently targets to provide home repair kits as well for Kapamilyas in evacuation centers.
It’s Showtime’s resident DJ, MOD, brought netizens to his virtual club, Club Fifty Five, which he started during the pandemic. “Mukha siya talagang club. Sabi ko nga, you don’t have to miss the clubs. Huwag kayong lumabas, stay safe. I’ll bring the club to you. Same experience, less risk,” he said. The idea was to soothe madlang pipol’s boredom while stuck at home.
Besides Club Fifty-Five, MOD together with Jugs and Teddy first ventured into live streaming via “The Call Boyz,” a comedy show wherein they get to interact with netizens and random callers. “Bored na bored ‘yung mga tao sa bahay, so we thought na baka may gusto silang kausap, baka meron silang gustong sabihin. ‘Yung iba mag-isa sa condo, sabi namin, let’s put up something. Sobrang hirap how we put this up,” shared MOD.
Teddy added, “Kailangan namin i-test ‘yung technology kasi wala pang masyadong gumagawa, so wala pa kaming masyadong mapagtanungan.”
After the catching up and DJ MOD’s first set, the trio welcomed guest artist DJ Sandy, the man behind the viral “Paro Paro G” tune. Breakout artist Matthaios who popularized “Catriona,” as well as hip-hop rapper Third Flo joined the episode and shared more of their music. Asked how it feels making it in the local music scene, Matthaios and Third Flo said they just keep going whether or not a song becomes popular, that’s why unexpected hits feel much sweeter. Jugs and Teddy also dared Matthaios to create an impromptu song for the episode’s host Darla Sauler.
After their performances, DJ MOD capped off the night spinning his hippest, hottest mix.
