Jayda’s music videos get a nod at Manhattan International Festival
Two music videos by singer-songwriter Jayda have qualified as official selections in the Fall 2021 Manhattan International Film Festival (IFFM) Best Music Video category.
These videos marked Jayda’s journey into directing, with “Paano Kung Naging Tayo?” making her directorial debut while the music video “MU (Malabong Usapan)” was her co-directing project with Edrex Clyde Sanchez.
On Instagram, artist Star Magic and talent at RISE Artists Studio expressed their gratitude to his Star Music label and ABS-CBN Music head Roxy Liquigan, saying, “Thank you for trusting me and having me. given a chance and a platform to expand my creative horizons and to continue to challenge myself as an artist and creator!
The “Paano Kung Naging Tayo?” MV, with nearly a million views on YouTube, features former PBB:Otso roommate Rhys Miguel. Jayda’s close friend Francine Diaz co-starred with her in the MV for “MU (Malabong Usapan)”, now with 663,000 views on YouTube.
Both tracks are also part of his eight-track debut album released last June titled Bahagi.
