Boy band 1:43 receives McJim Classic Leather’s OPM advocacy grant for single ‘Pasensya Na’

WORLD-CLASS leather goods maker McJim Classic Leather has chosen iconic Filipino boy band 1:43 as the second recepient of its Dreams Get Real OPM Advocacy Grant  for its new single “Pasensya Na.”

McJim Classic Leather, which has always been supportive of Filipino music, tapped the revamped 1:43 to further promote OPM by making it more appealing and relevant, especially to the younger generation. Towards this end, in fact, McJim successfully launched talent searches for the next big thing in the local music scene and has—in the recent past—sponsored the music of personalities like Tony Labrusca and X-Factor UK contestant JBK.


Patrick Sugui lands his first lead role in “MMK” as he gives life to the inspiring story of famous fashion designer Rey Michael Leyva this Saturday (Dec 16).

Way before he made dresses for Anne Curtis, Kim Chiu, Kris Aquino and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Rey (Patrick) already knew that he was gay like his brother Brian (Angelo Ilagan). However, when he saw how Brian suffered after opening up about his sexual orientation, he chose to hide his real identity.
