AMONG THE many targets of Denden Lazaro-Revilla’s rant on some aspects of volleyball fan culture was the background music being played during PVL games.

“Imagine mo, nagse-serve, and then, magsa-start na yung rally, may music pa rin?” she related on air.

She also related an incident during a Choco Mucho game day following Deanna Wong’s birthday (presumably, referring to the game against Army-Black Mamba on July 19).

“Time out, ha, time out. It wasn’t even between sets, it wasn’t even before the game, it wasn’t after the game. During a timeout in a set, nagpatugtog ng ‘Happy Birthday.’ What is this?” she said.

“That is so distracting. Kahit sabihing focused kami, we’re not deaf.”

To the DJ in charge, she asked rhetorically: “Are you playing it just for clout?

“Even if you’re trying to hype up the crowd… Sobrang showbiz, nakakainis.”

    Popular DJ Jimmy Nocon has responded to Lazaro’s complaints with a statement published on Twitter.

    “First of all, hindi po ako nag-play ng Birthday song,” he explained, “hindi din po ako nagpeplay ng music kapag may rally.”


    Nocon also explained the music selections and timing, saying that it was his way of entertaining the fans.

    “Na-witness ko kasi gaano sila nagtiyaga sa haba ng pila[,] parang yun lang naisip kong way para kahit papaano makabawi.”

    Of accusations of clout chasing, he also said that he often uploads going-ons and behind-the-scenes within games to his social media to please so many fans of the PVL who aren’t able to watch games.

    “Ang dami kasing di nakakapasok sa arena dahil full ang venue, hirap kumuha ng tickets and nasa malayong lugar na gusto makita mga ganap sa arena,” he said.

    “Ano man lang yung i-grant ko yung 1 or 2 song request na i-play ko sa warm up para kahit papano mapangiti ko lang yung mga nag sacrifice para manuod.”

    Nevertheless, he apologized if what he does made players feel uncomfortable.

    “Sorry kasalanan ko din talaga,” he said to close his statement. “Medyo naging insensitive lang din siguro ako. Hindi na po mauulit next time. I learned my lesson na.”
