Meet Kumu x PARCINQ Runners Up: Kevin Ibanez and Jash Cunanan



KEVIN IBAÑEZ (Runner up)


Kevin knows no limits. This 30-year-old has been juggling his career as a line cook and a streamer. And it doesn’t stop there. On top of that, Kevin is also a registered nurse in the Philippines and was also a professional taekwondo athlete who even played for the national team. No wonder this multitalented star has no problem sharing his many passions and colors with a live audience.



Kevin is not afraid of showing his quirkiness and boldness in front of the camera. Dubbed as 'The Sando King of KUMU,' he likes to spice up his live streams by mixing up singing content with a bit of comedy and dancing too. "I do what I love, perform, sing, and make my family [Kevinators] happy and proud. That's what's important." When he's not streaming, you can find Kevin at the gym or doing outdoor activities like hiking or anything active really.

Kevin was exhilarated about joining the Kumu x PARCINQ campaign. When he knew he would be in the Philippines during the shoot, and figured that he might as well give it a shot, and luckily, the odds were in his favor.


Persistent, passionate, and grateful are the three words that define him. It may still be a long run for Kevin, but he sure knows how to take it to the next level.

JASH CUNANAN (Runner up)


Jash never thought she would be a live streamer. As an introvert, speaking in front of viewers online was at first a very daunting experience. But what made this 24-year-old artist step into the virtual world is her burning passion for sharing stories and her talents. With her honey-like voice and pleasant personality, she has grown into one of Kumu’s power streamers.


It was not an easy start when she joined the KUMU X PARCINQ campaign, she reveals. Jash came up against other live streamers who already made a name on Kumu through the years. Despite being a newbie, she remained determined to win the campaign.


(For those new to Kumu, Campaigns are livestream contests where content creators need to go live and earn specific virtual gifts to win prizes– these can range from gift certificates to unique experiences, billboard features, and more. You can click here to learn more about campaigns, how to join them, and how to earn the coveted diamonds.)


To be in a magazine is a dream for the young artist, and now it has come true because of her hard work and the love of her supporters, called the Chao Fans.

The charming artist still sees herself continuing live streaming in the coming years, with a variety of content to explore. As Jash continues pursuing her big dreams, she will always be the sweet, humble, and gifted idol that her Chao fans grew to love.
