In an interview with GMA Regional TV, Sandy relayed that he came up with the song when he got to watch an online video of Jose Verano aka Master Seth. In the said video, Master Seth was pretending to induct a group of kids via a ceremony to his group "Paro Paro G."
"Nagsimula po 'yun nung makita ko si Boss Seth, 'yung gumawa ng grupong Paro Paro G. Natatawa ako kapag may binabasbasan siya [na maging miyembro ng grupo]... tapos naisipan ko paano kaya 'pag i-remix ko ito?" he shared.
Sandy composed the lyrics, sang, and created the sound of the viral track.
"Sa lahat ng may talent, tuloy-tuloy lang po [na] buhayin 'yung talent niyo. Tapos darating 'yung araw iyong talent niyo ang bubuhay sa inyo," he said.
Meanwhile, in an interview with ABS-CBN News, Sandy shared that he actually did not initially upload the track on TikTok.
"Una ko po talaga itong inupload sa YouTube tapos tinry ko po na iupload sa TikTok, don na po talaga nagsimula. Akala ko po di papatok. After five hours po nagsisimula na po talagang umangat. In one day po naka-one million po yata 'yun," he said.
The DJ shared that he started doing song remixes at an early age.
"Matagal na po talaga akong gumagawa ng remix ngayon lang po talaga pumutok. Nagsimula po akong mag-DJ nong eleven years old po ako. Mga 6 years na po ako," he said.
