This 2014, Fabe Event Production mounts its second fashion show series with its discovery models and will feature once again the facebook sensation from Angeles City, Matthew Ponce Chapman today, January 12, at 4pm at Star Mall, Las Piñas.
Chapman started out his career when he was 16 years old; via the social media network, facebook. He just posted photos and videos and it became viral and earned him a lot of ‘likes’ and that’s where he became an instant celebrity. Due to his success, he got invited by to shows and events. A lot of photographers were also asking him for photo shoots.
Even with the fluke, he remains his feet grounded and still considers what he has achieved is something, “I work hard in order to get here.”
Matt as many of his friends or fans know him, takes his inspiration from the local heartthrob and ABS-CBN Channel 2 talent, Enrique Gil.
“I lot of people have been comparing me to him and sees the semblance in us.”
Apart from Gil, Chapman admires Greyson Michael Chance. Ever since the American singer, songwriter and pianist’s fame via the April 2010 performance of Lady Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi’ at a sixth-grade music festival became a hit on YouTube, gaining over 36 million views—the half-Filipino and half-Irish have been following Chance.
He appears on TV5’s SPINNation hosted by Jasmine Curtis-Smith, every Saturday at 11pm.
Matt has something to share to aspiring and rising stars like him, “Always believe in yourself, never doubt. Stay humble nice to your fans.”
He also stresses, “Never change. For me, it is best to be famous for ‘being’ yourself and not changing for the sake of becoming popular.”
Chapman has two more events with Fabe Event Productions, both on Sundays of this month—January 19 at Starmall San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan and January 26 at Starmall Alabang.
Fabe Fashion Shows with Matthew Ponce Chapman is sponsored by Eurotel Hotel.
