MYMP (Make Your Momma Proud) break up; turned to MJSA (Made Juris Solo Artist):
I’ve been a fan of MYMP for years. But hearing the news about disbanding of MYMP really breaks my heart.
Here’s some excerpts from FUNFARE By Ricardo F. Lo (Philstar News Service, www.philstar.com):
The other night, the duo M.Y.M.P. (Make Your Mama Proud) Juris Fernandez and Chin Alcantara won the top award for Group Artist of the Year at the first Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Music held at the Sky Dome of SM North EDSA.
It was a happy-sad victory for the duo who wasn’t present at the awards. Instead, it was talent manager Noel Ferrer who received the trophy on their behalf.
The manager thanked Noel and said, “Congrats sa album natin. Pero ‘yon na ang last nina Juris at Chin as a duo. Juris is going solo.”
Sad, isn’t it? As the song goes, some good things never last…
“Nalungkot ako,” sighed Noel.
Juris quit the duo after Chin “booted” her and her manager Carla Lozada out due to disagreement over an “exposure” in the A.S.A.P. Sessionista.
Added Noel, “Juris is slated to launch her long-overdue solo album under Star Records, with five songs produced by Chin. The other original cuts were done by Jimmy Antiporda, Ryan Cayabyab and Gary Valenciano.”
No, Juris won’t be using her M.Y.M.P. “connection” anymore.
Well, good luck to Juris. For sure she will be a successful solo artist. But it will be different seeing her perform without Chin. Anyway, Chin is looking for a new partner.
