Two of Kapamilya singer-songwriter Jayda’s music videos have been selected as official selections for the International Film Festival Manhattan (IFFM) Autumn 2021’s Best Music Video category.
These videos marked Jayda’s venture into directing, with “Paano Kung Naging Tayo?” serving as her directorial debut while the “M.U. (Malabong Usapan)” music video was her co-directing project with Edrex Clyde Sanchez.
“Thank you for your belief in me and for giving me a chance and platform to expand my creative horizons and to keep challenging myself as an artist and a creator!” the Star Magic artist and RISE Artists Studio talent wrote on Instagram, thanking her label Star Music and ABS-CBN Music head Roxy Liquigan.
