As radio personalities become more visible thanks to the rise of digital media and the new radio buzz word “visual radio”, they have also become a celebrity in their own right.
While this is nothing new as we had Chico and Delamar of RX 93.1 smashing the hit song “Let’s Talk About Love” more than 2 decades ago, radio DJs as recording artist is now more prevalent.
DJ Papa Obet of Barangay LS 97.1 DWLS of GMA Network just inked a recording deal with the company’s recording arm GMA Records.
As his launching single, Papa Obet will be releasing “Una Kong Pasko”, a holiday tune to go on the air starting November 11, 2017.
On his Instagram, the Barangay radio personality revealed he penned and arranged the music for the song. And yes, he also did the vocals.
Papa Obet handles the Talk To Papa radio show on DWLS FM. But his road to stardom started when he auditioned for Protege, a talent search on GMA Network last 2011.
During an interview, he said that he will still remain as a Barangay LS radio host.
