In the comments section of her post, MYX fans and celebrities alike expressed their delight to see the former VJs together.

"Omg hiiiii guys!!!!! Miss you!!!!" said Iza Calzado.

Meanwhile, a fan said: "Lahat kayo meron na kanya kanyang family… Grabe! Next na makikita namin yung mga anak nyo magkakabarkada."

Luis, Nikki, and Iya were the original hosts of the music channel MYX, alongside Heart Evangelista, Karel Marquez, and Geoff Eigenmann.

In a 2020 interview, Nikki shared how being a MYX VJ changed her life.

"Not only it did help me hone my craft as a host parang it really established me as a host whether it be on TV or corporate events, live events. Parang because of MYX, host... I actually started out as a singer but because of MYX parang people kinda forgot that that was my entry point to show business. So people see me as a host more than anything else. So that's how it was for me," she said.

For his part, Luis has countless times credited his stint at MYX for opening up doors for him in showbiz.

"Everything started with MYX. It was my first show, then after that came 'ASAP,' came 'SCQ (Star Circle Quest).' Siguro for Nikki and I and Iya, we had different training for MYX also. When we started MYX, no prompters. We had nothing actually, it's basically just a script na bullet point. You are free to do your own thing, say wherever way you'll be more comfortable saying it. Para sa akin it was such a good training ground. That whatever I get to enjoy now I can easily credit it to me starting as a VJ for MYX," he said.
