Pinoy stars shine as Jordan Clarkson coaches Power 106 All-Star Game (Photos)


PhilBoxing.com




LOS ANGELES -- ​The task was to keep tabs ​on​ Filipino​-​American cager and Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson.

But as the chain of events unfolded at the Power 106 FM Celebrity All Star game at the Galen Center​ inside the campus of the University of Southern California (USC), it was hard to ignore the presence of the Filipino personalities gracing the event.

​With music luminaries such as Nelly, Chirs Brown and Will I Am of the Black-Eyed Peas in attendance, you can't help but wonder who is the genius behind the gathering of suh hip-hop gods?

​That's where DJ Eman​ enters. ​Named Emmanuel Coquia in real life, he planned, booked and produced this event. ​He was all over the place, giving instructions to artists for ​media photo opportunities​ and​ dictating the flow of performers.

​Heck, he ​even played guard in the basketball game itself.

​A master of those ​two turntables as a DJ​, Eman also happens to be the assistant program director for Power 106.​






Jordan Clarkson, fresh from his trip to support our Gilas basketball team was all smiles ​while guest coaching​. ​Naturally, he was ​swarmed by fans asking for photo​-​ops​.

The Jabbawockeez, an award winning dance crew, were a crowd favorite​​. They ​lit up the halftime show ​with their body breaking performance​s​, gyrating and generating oohs and ahhs ​from an excited crowd.​

Funnyman Jokoy was also in attendance. So ​wa​s Liane V, Vine?s fun loving personality who can sing, write, dance, model and act. Liane pretty much does everything while maintaining to excel in class. A true example of the Filipino mantra: ?Sipag, Tiaga at diskarte?

Justin Bieber?s ex girlfriend, Jasmine V, ​who has now blossomed into a fine young lady, ​ ​also lent her presence.​​ A former performer for the Los Angeles Clipper games ​where she sang the ​National Anthems, she ​has an impressive ​100 million​ plus​ You​T​ube followers.

Disney Actor Roshon Fegan was also in the crowd that night. I spotted him whip and doing the Nae nae with Chris Brown and friends.

​A ​new school of Filipino artists ​were ​seen ​in the stands, ​taking pictures and soaking in the atmosphere. The ​presence of Filipino personalities listed in the ​60-plus​ celebs present that night made me beam with pride.

​As the old slogan used to say, "Yes, the Filipino can!"

We sure can jam with every beat and rhyme in the beautiful art that is hip hop.
