Liza Soberano was launched on Thursday, June 15, as the new endorser of Megapro Plus and Megasound Karaoke System.
If there’s one other thing that Filipinos love besides food and family, it’s singing.
From small gatherings and barangay contests, to reality TV shows and global singing competitions, there is no stage too small, or audience too daunting for us to show off our vocal prowess.
Celebrations are incomplete without a marathon singing session, fiestas only become more festive if there is a singing competition—as if we haven’t had our fill from all those TV shows.
The Filipino’s love for singing has become almost legendary, and in this age of the internet and social media, we have the entire world as our audience.
For many Filipinos, singing has also become a kind of therapy against the everyday stress, and the proliferation of KTV and karaoke bars everywhere—even inside the malls and Family Entertainment Centers is a clear sign of this obsession.
VIDEOKE FOR EVERY FILIPINO FAMILY
This love for singing and videoke is what prompted two friends to start a company that will provide Filipinos with a quality videoke system, complete with the latest features but at a more reasonable price.
Founded by Mr. Kim Sung Bok and business partners Mr. Jacinto Co and son Mr. Andy Co, MP Megapro Plus Marketing Corporation is one of first local companies to manufacture its own line of karaoke systems.
“It is common knowledge that a party is not a Filipino Party without karaoke, says Andy Co, proprietor and business partner of MP Megapro Plus Marketing Corporation.
“Our vision was to spread entertainment throughout the Philippines and truly showcase the Filipinos’ natural festive attitude through singing,” adds Co.
“Filipinos love to be in the spotlight and singing is the perfect way for them to do so. In any get-together, whether it’s an office party or family reunions, singing has always been the best ice breaker. Once someone gets hold of the microphone and starts to sing it sets a positive mood and makes everybody feel more comfortable,” he said.
MP Megapro Plus Marketing Corporation first began to develop and manufacture its own karaoke system in 2006, using Korean engineering technology. The first model they introduced in the market was the MP-100NS DVD system.
The MP-100NS became their flagship model as the consumer embraced the product well and remains as one of their bestselling models to date.
The MP-100NS includes all the features you need in a videoke player such as various sound source support for karaoke (MIDI, LIVE CHORUS: backup singer & Instruments, WAVE, & Lyrics). High Performance Mic/Echo processor; USB playback and recording, Up to 5 kinds of background video; on-screen song search for more that 18,000 song titles; song reserve with back-up in case of power failure, storage 256 favorite-songs and display; voice output for 10 key input. All Karaoke function (Reserve, Song Search, New song display, BGV, Vocal, Melody on/off, Change of Rhythm, Genre selection, Key &tempo control, Score function and it also doubles as a DVD Player.
Over the years, MP Megapro Plus Marketing Corporation has continued to develop more products to meet the demands of the diverse market, both for home and commercial use.
“Quality, durability and affordability are our top priorities. We want to make sure that all our products remain reasonably priced for the Filipino budget while improving our after sales service to support our expansion in delivering our products available nationwide,” Mr. Kim Sung Bok pointed out.
“We are proud to say that we have the most number of service centers available nationwide as compared to other karaoke manufacturer or brand,” he added.
