MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — OPM rock star Ebe Dancel asked fast-rising local band Ben&Ben if he can be a front act on their upcoming shows.
In his Twitter account, Ebe posted a video where he was performing the indie folk-pop band’s hit single “Maybe The Night.”
"Hi @BenAndBenMusic im a huge fan. Can i be your front act please thanks,” Ebe wrote, tagging vocalists Paolo and Miguel Benjamin as well as pianist Pat Lasaten.
The band quickly replied to the former Sugarfree frontman and invited him to collaborate with them.
“Hello Sir @ebedancel may we have the honor of collaborating with u on a song it is a dream of ours pls,” the band’s Twitter account responded.
