Following Star Music's online announcement over the week, BoybandPH has officially received the Gold record award for their debut album.
In ASAP's live episode on Sunday, April 2, the group -- comprised of Niel Murillo, Ford Valencia, Russell Reyes, Tristan Ramirez, and Joao Constancia -- accepted the award, certified by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry or PARI, from Star Music audio content head Jonathan Manalo, together with album producers Kidwolf and Kiko Salazar. In an interview, BoybandPH said: "Sa sobrang pag-e-enjoy namin sa ginagawa namin, hindi namin alam na ganito na pala, naka-Gold na pala kami." "Nagpapasalamat kami, lalong-lalo na sa Super fans, kasi kung 'di dahil sa kanila, hindi maso-sold out ang album tours namin, wala kaming ganito," the boys added.
The boys also associated their current status with their latest single, their rendition of Depeche Mode's "Somebody."
"Bukod sa families namin, ang isa't-isa talaga ang 'somebody' namin ngayon," they shared.
Asked if there were already petty fights among the group, BoybandPH said: "'Di pa kami nag-aaway-away." "'Yung pasensya namin sa isa't-isa, mahaba. Kailangan sa grupo gano'n. Mahal namin ang isa't isa," said the group.
Apart from the Gold award, BoybandPH treated their guest performance at ASAP Birit Queens concert last Friday (March 31) as a milestone in their career. "Sobrang saya no'n. Dati nanonood lang kami sa mga gano'ng concerts pero iba 'yung pakiramdam na nakatapak kami sa gano'n kalaking stage at venue to perform. Nakakakaba pero masaya 'pag pinapalakpakan ka na ng mga tao, sulit 'yung pinaghirapan mo," they said.
BoybandPH, aside from continuously promoting their debut album and performing on the ABS-CBN musical variety show, is gearing up for their first major concert happening here at OneMusicPH on May 6.
