PoPinoy winners join KZ Tandingan and Darren Espanto for upsized saya from TNT

 TNT champions ‘Tropang Malakasan’ in new campaign

Value mobile brand TNT is gearing up for more positivity and inspiration for Kabataang Pinoys as it launches its ‘Tropang Malakasan’ campaign that highlights ‘pangmalakasang saya’ and connection that a reliable and well-bonded tropa brings.

TNT introduced the campaign with an upbeat ‘Tropang Malakasan’ music video led by TNT endorsers KZ Tandingan and Darren Espanto and featuring PoPinoy winners Versus and Yara, who are the latest ambassadors to join the growing TNT tropa.

With ‘Tropang Malakasan,’ TNT captures the upsized saya of being in a bonded group, which serves as a much-needed source of motivation and inspiration to power through life’s triumphs and challenges.

“TNT has always promoted pangmalakasang saya and encouraged Kabataang Pinoys to take on life’s daily challenges and achieve their dreams, but this wouldn’t be possible without a fun and reliable tropa behind you. Our Tropang Malakasan campaign is a tribute to every tropa that is a positive force in the lives of our subscribers to achieve their dreams,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.

“What better way to do this than with our growing TNT tropa, who now include PoPinoy winners Versus and Yara? These two promising Pinoy Pop groups rose to the challenge and proved that Kabataang Pinoys can achieve their dream if they put their heart and soul into it.,” she added.

Versus and Yara shared that they are all pumped up to be part of the TNT tropa and thankful to have their groups to enjoy the ride with.


“It feels surreal because we just used to dream about it but now, we are living it. We are grateful and excited to have this opportunity to become the newest ka-tropa and experience an amazing adventure with our TNT family” said Ken Huroichi of Versus, whose members also include Kheene Salas, Josh Van Gozo, Joerell San Juan, and Gabriel Luis Pascual.

Asked about how her group has been helping here, Yara member Christa Leiechano said, “I always see Yara strive to bring out the best in everyone. Like a true Tropang Malakasan, we inspire and motivate each other to keep leveling up our skills as performers.” Christa is joined by Gelou Villanueva, Kim Natividad, and Rocher Joyce Villa to complete Yara.

Inspiring words for Kabataang Pinoys

Asked about their advice for Versus, Yara, and the rest of Kabataang Pinoys carving their path toward their dreams, TNT endorser and Asia’s Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan shared: “Have ambitious dreams, but make sure you’re working towards that goal. One day at a time! Be patient with yourself, and you will get there someday.”


TNT endorser and Filipino-Canadian singer and actor Darren Espanto added, “Trust in God’s timing. If something is meant for you, it’ll happen eventually. Don’t try to rush it and don’t be disappointed if things don’t go your way. Don’t give up, even when it feels like nothing’s happening. Stay confident and be yourself, always.”

Gelou of Yara is grateful for the opportunity to work with the two OPM hit artists for the TNT TVC.  “It was a great experience for all of us. We learned a lot about how they work and their professionalism," she said.

Gab of Versus added, "They were both friendly and accommodating to us. We felt their energy and positive presence during the shoot. We are looking forward to bond with them more next time."
