"Kumu campaigns are a fun way for streamers to interact with their fans and compete with other streamers to win unique prizes and experiences, like getting to be a Metro cover girl," says Angelo Mendez, Kumu Chief Content Officer. "The Metro campaign is so unique that this campaign will actually highlight a new kind of celebrity and talent—the live-streamer! And what better way to find out who the best live-streamers are than by their fandoms showing their support via gifting."

Over the past few months, ABS-CBN has been strengthening its presence on Kumu, launching three new channels: For Your Entertainment (FYE), Game KNB, and MYX PH. You’ve probably noticed some of your favorite Kapamilya personalities, from Robi Domingo to Bianca Gonzalez-Intal on the platform.
Metro, of course, is not one to be left behind. The magazine and lifestyle website has several shows on Kumu, including Make Me Over, where top celebrity make-up artists show viewers how to cop the look from their celebrity clients; Metro K-Drama Club, where the Metro editors talk about K-Drama news and updates; Style Me Now, where viewers are taught the tips and tricks of styling; and Metro Chats, where we bring on some of the most interesting personalities of this day age, from Frankie Pangilinan to Ruffa Gutierrez, Regine Velasquez, and Iza Calzado.
“Response to the shows on Kumu has been very encouraging, as the channel’s shows have consistently attained Kumu’s coveted Hot Badge, meaning they are the most-watched shows on their respective time slots,” says Mark Yambot, Channel Head of FYE. “The key difference with its other digital offerings is that in FYE, the interaction is in real time, and the audience becomes part of the show.”
Note: Winners within Metro Manila get to experience an actual shoot; non-Metro Manila or non-PH-based winners will participate via virtual photoshoot.
