Introducing Geiko, the young artist, who created a song out of her love for Shopee

December 11, 2021 8:01 p.m.

If you’re looking for a fresh new sound to add to your playlist, then you can count on up-and-coming artist geiko’s mellow voice and catchy beats to deliver. She recently released a new single entitled “Oh no I’m on Shopee again,” and it perfectly captures Filipinos’ passion for online shopping.

Since 2017, geiko has been making waves on YouTube with her covers and original songs, gaining thousands of subscribers in the process.

A self-taught musician, geiko got into music at three years old and started writing songs at just six years old, and eventually started uploading covers on YouTube. She finds creative inspiration from musicians of all genres, from OPM legends like APO Hiking Society and Eraserheads to K-Pop superstars.

She describes her own music style as “something that makes you want to stare into nothingness, jump and dance around in public without the fear of judgement, or cry in the bathroom.”

Though shy, geiko loves performing. “I love seeing reactions to my music. It makes me happy that people can relate to my music,” she shares. 

geiko’s latest release, “Oh no I’m on Shopee again,” might just be her most relatable one yet. She shares that since window shopping is one of her favorite ways to pass the time, browsing Shopee is akin to falling into a rabbit hole. She constantly finds more and more items she wants to check out. The app serves as her one-stop shop for school, art, and music essentials and so much more. 

“I love anything cute, like bags that look like a loaf of bread and a chicken, or items that have animals on it. I look for glasses too, it’s becoming quite a collection for me. I also look for art materials, music equipment, and other things that can improve my work flow. Right now I’m eyeing new keyboards, both for typing and for making music,” she says.

As she was scrolling through the app one day, she realized she couldn’t afford any of the items on her wishlist. But she didn’t just “stare at my phone and cry.”

She actually went ahead and wrote a song about it, finishing the lyrics in one go and recording the song on the same day. 

The quirky lyrics, narrated in geiko’s soft, smooth voice, takes listeners through a fun, colorful world of “radishes, froggies, cow printed trimmed candies… music things and stationary”—just a few of the items on geiko’s budol wishlist. 

Speaking of budols—when it comes to them, geiko abides by just one rule: “If may gusto ka, add to cart mo. If ‘di ka makatulog kakaisip, check out mo na ‘yan!”

Play geiko’s “Oh no I’m on Shopee again” while you scroll through Shopee. Listen to it on geiko’s official Spotify and Youtube channels. A short version of the song is also available on TikTok.

Watch geiko perform “Oh no I’m on Shopee again” live for the first time at the 12.12 Big Christmas Sale TV Special this December 12, 10:30 PM on GMA-7 and Shopee Live.

LG helps women wear their best

March 31, 2022 6:40 p.m.

As the whole world celebrates Women’s Month, we find ourselves looking back throughout history about the role women played and how it has evolved today. It’s an uphill battle, but year after year, the gender gap is slowly getting narrower. The goal of equality, freedom, and empowerment is within reach.

Technology plays a large role in breaking down stereotypes. New innovations and groundbreaking advances in technology give anyone the ability to do jobs and chores that were otherwise gendered.

Housework, for example, has always been a role assigned to women by default. LG has invested in numerous products aimed at giving women the freedom to explore their lives, outside the regular household chores

LG, one of the trailblazers in technology and innovation, remains steadfast in its goal of simplifying work to make life good.

Through the simplicity and hassle-free nature of LG home appliances, everyone, especially women, are given more time and freedom to pursue and live the kind of life they want. LG continuously commits to creating innovative products to support women. 

In its Women’s Month campaign, LG focuses on how its clothing care solutions, consisting of washing machines and dryers, can bring out the best version of you.

Instead of looking at laundry as a chore, LG makes doing the laundry complement your lifestyle while caring for your wash against wear and tear. With intuitive controls and precise settings, you can do the laundry with a click of a button and live your best life.

The LG Styler is key to looking sharp in every outfit, especially for the ladies with a passion for fashion. It refreshes and removes odors from fabrics, and utilizes LG’s TrueStreamTM technology to help reduce allergens and wrinkles in clothing.

This steamy assistant also has a dehumidifying function that can freshen up her walk-in wardrobe, keeping her ready to dress for success anytime,  stepping out in style.

Speaking more about the initiative, LG Managing Director Seungjae Kim said “Women’s Month is all about empowerment and freedom. We celebrate women all over the world and we hope that our innovations have played a part in achieving their goals. With the help of today’s technologies, LG celebrates these amazing women with modern solutions to help boost their quality of life.”
