Guji Lorenzana hopes to do video collaboration with the dancing family of YouTube superstar Niana Guerrero.

He told (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "I'm really such a huge fan of Niana Guerrero and their family.

"You know, the dancers... I mean, I have a family of my own, so you can imagine how much I love my children if you watch my channel.

"But that's something I want to do because dancing is part of my life, and music...

"it'd be really cool if I could write a song or perform with them [Niana], have my kids involved, maybe teach my kids how to dance.

"They're amazing, super fun, and entertaining."

Currently, Guji has 20.7K followers on YouTube.


The actor-singer is among the 12 winners of NextUp Philippines 2021, a contest organized by YouTube Philippines and SMART to help boost the career of Filipino content creators.

Grateful for the opportunity, he said at a press launch via YouTube last November 12, 2021, "I'm super, super humbled to be in this amazing, amazing [program].

"I'm excited to level up my contact because eventually, I want my kids to say, 'Wow, dad, you did such a great job on your YouTube site.

"And you know, at the same time, they say you have to surround yourself with the right people in order to level up yourself in everything that you do.

"So what better way to do that, with all the stuff we do, is by being a part of this camp."

His winning package also included PHP100,000-worth of production equipment.

In an Instagram post last November 14, 2021, Guji conveyed his gratitude for being picked as one of the winners of the competition.
