He started vlogging for more than two months now, and he already reached more than 280,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, Wilbert Tolentino VLOGS.
“I am indeed thankful for this achievement,” declares Wilbert. “As a newbie in this entertainment streaming, knowing that I can bring smiles on the lips and good time to my subscribers, it makes me feel great.”

Sir Wil continues his vlogging experience sharing: “As a co-owner of three entertainment bars (Apollo, Club 690, Farenheit), creativity and content are the best ingredients you must input to pique the interest and arouse the curiosity of your viewers who eventually become subscribers. Since the start of my vlog, I make it a point to read the good comments, even the nastier ones. Each comment has something to say, and you unearth from them gems of ideas. These ideas inspire me to come out with exciting and relevant content. And I believe that with the impressive numbers that we have reached in a short period of time, I am giving our growing audiences happiness and good vibes. I am overwhelmed and grateful for all their love and support.”
He carries on: “There is a bigger advocacy here, I want to bring the people together, to collaborate, to work in harmony, and offer all innovative forms of entertainment, In the nearest future, part of my dream ois to realize convention wherein the participants are all the popular and positive influencers in the different social media sites such as Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Lyka, Facebook.
