A decade had passed since Agimat ng Masa was formed with the aim of providing help for victims of calamities and other problems that need immediate solution. Inspired by the requests of those whom it had helped, Agimat ng Masa was formed into a Party-list group and is seeking a seat in Congress.
Since 2011, Agimat ng Masa had been helping and assisting communities in providing health programs, livelihood, as well as education, including but not limited to the online learning classes for students.
According to Bryan Revilla, they have given assistance to many sectors but there are many others needs of our kababayan that needs to be addressed and attended to. Bryan said they hope to be able to craft policies that would enable to them to be more effective and present a long-term livelihood opportunity.
“If we will be given a chance, Agimat will push for a multisectoral response by participating in crafting policies that can help every sector and we can't do this if we are not in Congress,” said Bryan.
Thru Agimat, Bryan said they would like to help workers from the private and public sector, farmers, fishermen, professionals, small to medium scale industry workers, the elderly, the youth, and the PWDs so they have representation in Congress.
“This is not politics or an empty promise because we had been helping many people even before we applied for a party-list accreditation,” Bryan ended.

Roman Perez Jr. is one of the most-prolific directors under Viva Entertainment, doing mostly skin-flicks for Viva's streamlining platform Vivamax. He is a fast worker and can finish a film in a jiffy. Direk Roman says he makes sure every movie he makes is different from the last one he directed.
He admits though that his last Vivamax offering titled “Putahe” is a homage to his big hit titled “Adan” which made a lot of heads turn when it was first released. It sure got the public interested and intrigued.
“This (Putahe) is not a sequel to 'Adan' because it has subplot about cooking. In Putahe, we are saying that sex and cooking are both important. It is how you put your message across that makes the difference,” said the box-office director.
It is because of “Adan” that made Direk Roman a much-sought after filmmaker on the Viva camp. He had a string of hit movies shown in Vivamax. But he said that “Putahe” is different because of the combination of Ayanna Misola at Jenelle Tee (Miss Earth 2019).
He promised Ayanna that he is going to direct her launching film. “She has an innocent look in her that makes her look vulnerable. Add to Jenelle's sensuality then you have a lethal combination,” said the director.
Direk Roman adds he likes to launch newcomers to stardom because they are raw and innocent.
The male cast ng 'Putahe' are newcomers as well namely Massimo Scofield, Nathan Cajucom, and Chad Solano. “Putahe” is their baptism of fire since they were all asked to do sexy scenes.
