Ken San Jose just turned seventeen last April 10 and he got a surprise from his friends AC Bonifacio and Inigo Pascual as soon as the clock hit the midnight. A video footage of the sweet gesture shows Ken in his most comfortable ‘pambahay’ look. He had no intentions of going out his room that night but he did due to a text message he received from his mother; as if her mom was going to reprimand him for some serious matter. Then, his buddies came out greeting him a Happy Birthday and they all celebrated at home.
Ken and Inigo’s closeness started out when they both followed each other in social media while Ken was still in the States. So, they were already good friends when Ken went to the Philippines and he first got to hang out with Inigo at the backstage of Sunday Kapamilya show ASAP. In fact, Inigo penned Ken’s first musical single entitled “Lose Control”. Ken performed the song in his guesting in TWBA; coupled with his youthful groove.
Apparently, Ken’s first love was not dancing but singing and basketball. Yet, his dance journey simply came as quite inevitable; as Ken apparently belong to a clan of dancers. Ken is related to Agnes Locsin, a former director of the Ballet Philippines. The entire Locsin clan of Davao is known for their flair for dancing and for conducting workshops in the said field. So, it is safe to say that Ken’s dancing skills run in the blood.
Due to his parents’ request, Ken had gone through a series of dancing lessons since he was a kid and the first dance form he was able to try was hip-hop. Ken instantly got hooked with the genre.
