If you are familiar with the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) announcement on television and cinemas, or if you've seen THAT viral post of Inka Magnaye, we’re sure you already know the voice behind that iconic PSA.

Her name is Neneng Magnaye Arceo, and she started her job as a voice talent in 1989.

According to Neneng, she initially booked gigs doing side hustles and one-liners before moving on to doing voice projects for big companies. In 2011, she was asked by her friend to record a public service announcement for the MTRCB. Neneng recalls her friend and then-chairperson Sen. Grace Poe were with her during the recording of the spiel. Nine years later, and we can still hear the same recording on our television sets.

Neneng and Inka come from a family of voice talents. Both of Inka's parents AND siblings, as well as Neneng's husband are also in the voice industry.
