Chino Lui Pio talks about being up close and personal with his favorite foreign artists through MYX.
MYX VJ Chino Lui Pio knows how tough the competition is in the entertainment industry, which is why he’s determined to make the most out of all the opportunities that comes with his job. “It’s my second year as a MYX VJ and until now I’m having a blast. Hindi ko in-expect na ganito ako magiging ka-happy sa MYX. I am really grateful for the whole experience. Kahit the next day mawala ako, though ‘wag naman sana, pero ‘pag nangyari yun, no hard feelings for me because I enjoyed every minute of my work,” said the charming 25-year old in an interview with ABS-CBN.com.
Chino further shared that he enjoys getting up close and personal with a lot of his favorite foreign artists like Paramore, Dashboard Confessional, and Akon to name a few. “I never imagined that I’d get to interview them. Before kasi wala pa masyadong pumupuntang international artists dito sa Philippines. So watching them live and jamming with the crowd, grabe na yung feeling. But meeting them, talking to them, shaking their hands, alam mo yun? Iba talaga especially because I am a big fan of music.”
A lot of music fanatics would surely envy Chino as he never misses an opportunity to have his photo taken with theses artists and get their autographs for him to treasure even long after his stint as a MYX VJ. “Siguro yung iba iisipin nagpapa-cool ako na kailangan ‘di ako magpa-picture and magpa-autograph. But for me kailangan ko ng proof! You’re there so grab the opportunity, nagpapa-picture talaga ako. I bring my cam, my own pentel pen and t-shirt to have it signed. Actually, I have a collection of t-shirts that I hang on my wall at home na napa-sign ko na. Hopefully dumami pa.”
But more important than his fan moments, Chino claimed that his hosting stint has not only improved his self-confidence but also his willingness to try out new things. For instance, he’s not closing doors when it comes to venturing into show business in the future. “Acting is okay with me. As long as bagay sa akin yung role and I think I can do it well, why not? I am not saying no kasi before sabi ko sa dad ko ayoko maging MYX VJ kasi hindi ko talaga kaya. And now I am here and I am having a great time. I guess I learned a lesson,” he added.
