MJ has been interviewed at one of the most viewed podcasts from New York, Jessy Daing and Jcas Jesse Lucas’ #OverAGlassOrTwo where he shed light on his Hollywood interviews. As well as being part of the EBC’s PR and publicities.
It’s his birthday month, and MJ, even if he’s miles away from his office at the EBC is already busy with the preparations for the next big project of EBC, with the life story of former Jukebox King Victor Wood.
#OAGOT has been so impressed with a Pinoy like MJ, who rose to greater heights not just to be a role model for his “kababayans” in the Philippines but all over the world!
He is truly a gem in every way! A “Kapatid” through and through! (30)
