Rhemuel Lunio or better known as DJ Loonyo’s rise to fame may have come as quite a surprise to everyone. He became an internet sensation because of his viral dance videos.
During the fifth episode of “I Feel U” last June 7, the choreographer-vlogger talked to host Toni Gonzaga about his life in China and how his life has changed now that he is a CEO of a fitness dance company.
“Two years na 'ko pabalik balik dito (sa China) pero recently, last November, dito na 'ko nag-stay,” he shared.
DJ Loonyo then recalled how his first-ever dance challenge became viral in TikTok.
“Dito kasi sa China, uso 'yung TikTok. 2016 pa lang gumagawa na 'ko ng dance challenge with Rockwell. Noong andito na ‘ko, tinry ko yung uso na nakatayo na style. Eh 'yung first na challenge ko parang umingay,” he recalled.
“Sinundan ko na up until gumawa ako ng video about sa virus (COVID-19), nag-live ako, naglabas ako ng saloobin sa mga ginagawa ng Pinoy na matigas nga ‘yung ulo. So mula doon, nag-simula na siya parang sinusundan na ng mga tao ‘yung mga challenges ko,” he added.
Now a huge internet sensation, the choreographer said that he intends to use his platform for the good.
“Hindi ko na maiintindinhan ‘yung nangyari [after noon] pero siyempre ‘di ka pwede mag-complain kapag binigyan ka ni God ng ganyang platform. Kailangan gawin mo nang tama, maging responsable ka, [at] maging accountable ka sa mga ginagawa mo,” he said.
