Everyone goes through doubt. When Nikolo Salazar’s dad told him that there’s always someone better than you, he took that doubt, harnessed it into something positive, and eventually created an award winning animation called “Marianing”.
One of the advantages of living in a small city like Cebu is the opportunity to meet many people. The circles are small. If you are seeking a particular tribe, it isn’t difficult to find.

The magic happens when you get people from different tribes and put them together to collaborate.
Cebu has housed a multitude of talented artists from different genres who deliver original, high-quality music for the country to hear. One of the obstacles these musicians face is the scarcity of an outlet to nurture, embrace, promote and distribute the talent that they want to share — a place for them to call home.

Fortunately for us, someone came up with Zerothreetwo and it stuck.
