Vispop 4.0 is a songwriting campaign that encourages Visayan-speaking composers and music enthusiasts to write quality Visayan songs that speak of today’s generation.
Vispop 4.0’s Beginnings
Vispop is a brainchild of Artist Ko, a non-profit, non-stock organization that supports individual creativity, skill, and talent. Artist Ko has artists, musicians and entrepreneurs as members. Vispop was conceptualized in 2009 and had its first staging in 2013. The first batch of Vispop finalists and winners captured the hearts of not just Cebuano listeners but non-Cebuano speaking music fans all over the country as well. It produced well-crafted songs such as Duyog, Laylay, Papictura Ko Nimo Gwapo, Labyu Langga, Buwag Balik, Dili Pa Panahon, Bok Love, among others. Some of these songs are topping charts nationwide.
Vispop 4.0 Finalists
Now on it’s 4th year, Vispop is once again set to make waves with its new set of 6 finalists meticulously chosen from among more than 200 entries from all over the country’s Visayan-speaking regions. Songwriters who made it to the final 6 are John Cadelina and Irving Guazon (Damgo), Kenneth Corvera (Pep-Pep), Sherwin Fugoso & Marajane Monton (Imoha Ra Akong Kasingkasing), Joseph Gara (Paghunas), Marie Salvaleon (Suwat ni Maria), and Jerika Teodorico (Baklay).

Vispop is supported by Filipino Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, Inc. (FILSCAP) and Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. My favorite song in the list is Pep-Pep! It reminds me to take a break from work and travel somewhere in Cebu. How about you? Which Vispop 4.0 song is your favorite?
