Did you know? The "Dahil Sa Iyo" official lyric video has over 100 million streams on YouTube.

Inigo's hit single, "Dahil Sa Iyo," which won an Awit Award for Song of the Year in 2016, just recently hit 100 million views on YouTube. It's such a success that K-Pop's Sandara Park and iKON member Kim Jinhwan aka Jay even made a cover of his track. Too cool!

On December 5, Candy got to catch up with Inigo at the Preview @ 25 House Party and here's what we learned about the performer:

He has over 3M fans on his Tiktok, @inigopascual, and he spends a looot of time on the app.

"Especially during the quarantine, I find myself just spending so much of my day on TikTok just watching videos," Inigo tells Candy. "And I always find interesting videos and I feel like I get most of my ideas from watching other people's videos, especially the dance videos.


"And I also try to incorporate my singing, and whatever I can share that I can do, and I guess it's just fun to be able to do that on Tiktok and I guess it also became my stress reliever during the whole lockdown that we had to go through."

He follows most of his Star Magic friends on Tiktok.

In the same interview, Inigo says some local content creators he follows on TikTok are Joao Constancia, Jeremy Glinoga, and Yanyan De Jesus. He also follows a lot of his friends from Star Magic (his management).

He started enjoying acting more as he got older, but music is his first *true* love.

"When I was younger, I've always just loved singing more than acting more than anything. But as I got older I feel like I just gained more understanding on what acting really is and I feel like now. I'm just learning to enjoy it.


"I'm actually learning to enjoy the process of creating a scene or creating a character and being that character. But when it comes to singing. I've always enjoyed just being onstage performing for people and it's this feeling that you get whenever you sing an original song, and you hear the people, or the audience singing it as well, like songs only you knew before."
