It was his first time to visit the country, but Jayden felt right at home as soon as he arrived in Manila. His fans welcomed him with a surprise party at Jollibee. Throughout the tour he connected with celebrities Vice Ganda, Billy Crawford, Vhong Navarro, Thor, Paolo Santos, Jimmy Bondoc, AJ Rafael, Gab Valenciano, Jako De Leon, Connor Franta and Bogart The Explorer to name a few.

My trip to the Philippines with MAS Presents was incredible. They organised everything and I had the opportunity to interact with my Filipino followers in ways I didn’t think would be possible. I’m now in talks with MAS to head back over to the Philippines sometime in October or November to perform in concerts, host more dance workshops, collaborate with local YouTubers, visit more sights and try more Pinoy delicacies. Kudos to Marco and his amazing team for their hard work and dedication, “ said Rodrigues.


MAS Presents director and Hip Hop impresario Marco Selorio said that working side by side with YouTube sensation Jayden Rodrigues made things a lot easier.


Our initial tour with Jayden was a success because he and I shared the same vision and goals. I’ve only known him for a short time, but I knew he is ready to work. Not many artists are like him, because he is coachable, willing to learn and listen and keeps his feet on the ground. In the process, we over-achieved, made new friends and networked with so many organisations. He is such a hard-working, humble and creative person. We are both on the same page, and our team really enjoyed his company, “ said Selorio.


Jayden is now preparing for a new trip to the USA to represent Just Dance at the E3 Electronic Entertainment Conference in LA on June 14-16. You can watch his Philippine vlogs on his YouTube channel.
