OCTOBER 2020 marked the return of esteemed balladeer Martin Nievera to Vicor Music Corporation. He signed with the label on August 18.1982 with the release of his debut album Take 1 which included the track Be My Lady, his signature song. In 1989 , ‘Dream’ rounded off Nievera’s first six years with Vicor label before moving on to further his career. it was during his time with Vicor that he would establish the beginnings of a solid gold career with hits like ‘Each Day With You’ and’Ikaw ang Lahat sa Akin’.

Fast forward to 2022.

The premier balladeer and OPM icon returns with his first original song since returning to his original music label Vicor with a meaningful tune titled “Smile Again.” Martin Nievera mentioned that thinking about the many things that put a smile on his face during the pandemic, he thought of family, friends and his pet dogs. These things, coupled with the thought of writing a new song akin to Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile” inspired him to write the lyrics for the piano-decked music that long-time collaborator Homer Flores gave him. And it all came together quick and the resulting song is this positive-vibed new original written by one of the most successful balladeers in Pinoy pop.


Ayana stars in an extra spicy movie

CULT director, Roman Perez. Jr., serves us an extra spicy original movie this May. “Putahe” stars Ayanna Misola who became one of Vivamax movie sensations soon after she starred in “#Pornstar 2: Pangalawang Putok” and “Kinsenas, Katapusan”.

In “Putahe,” she plays Jenny, an island girl who has big plans for herself and her family. She starts fan girling on a newcomer in the island who’s got superb cooking skills. Jenny follows her around until she finally catches her attention.

Euka, played by beauty queen Janelle Tee (Miss Philippines Earth 2019), obliges to give Jenny cooking lessons…and more. Euka sheds her mysterious aura and reveals her wild, seductive side as she gives Jenny sex lessons she will never forget.

And now, Jenny craves for more. She does it next with her boyfriend, Ephraim (Massimo Scofield), never stopping until they are satiated. But while Jenny loses all her innocence, Ephraim seems to be losing his interest in her. Convinced that Euka has something to do with it, Jenny does yet another thing that’s totally out of character.
