Jona Viray explainis why Prima Jona is the title of her upcoming concert: "Ready po ako to face all challenges, to face new opportunities or yung mga bagong projects na ibibigay sa akin."


Is it true that the Birit Queens segment will soon end on ASAP?

“Sabi-sabi lang po nila, pero wala naman po talagang confirmation or wala rin pong binabalita sa amin from the management kaya wala rin akong masabi talaga,” Jona told entertainment reporters and bloggers during Prima Jona concert press conference on Monday, November 13.

Jona says she and her fellow Birit Queens—Angeline Quinto, Klarisse de Guzman, and Morissette Amon—are also busy with their respective projects, which may be why people think they are already inactive.

The 28-year-old singer reiterated, “Honestly po, hangga't wala silang sinasabi sa amin, hangga't walang sinasabi ang ASAP sa amin, hindi rin po ako puwedeng makapag-comment kung wala na ba talaga or meron pa.

“Basta sa ngayon kasi, mayroon din po kaming kanya-kanyang projects, e.

“Individually, parang may significant projects din kaming ginagawa sa ngayon kaya siguro baka hindi muna nagpo-focus sa Birit Queens as a group.

“Yun na lang po, siguro hintayin na lang natin kung ano po ba talaga ang mangyayari.

Is Jona ready if the “Birit Queens” segment does end on ASAP?

Jona replied, “Sa akin naman po, whatever po yung ibigay na opportunity or project, siyempre po, kailangan nating magpatuloy, kailangan nating tanggapin, kailangang mag-move forward.

“Ang importante po sa amin ay na-establish po yung pagkakaibigan naming apat.

“If ever man po na hindi na kami magsama-sama as Birit Queens, I'm sure magsasama-sama pa rin po kami sa mga production number sa ASAP at sa special events po ng ABS-CBN.”

PRIMA JONA. Meanwhile, Jona said the title of her concert, Prima Jona, should not be taken negatively like the negative connotation of prima donna.

For the Kapamilya singer, this just means being at the prime of her career.

“Ang pagkakaintindi ko po, kumbaga, kung itong panahon ngayon ay masasabi ko bang prime recording artist ako o prime performer o prime singer.

“Kaya ko po masasabi na yes kasi, nandun yung readiness sa sarili ko.

“Ready po ako to face all challenges, to face new opportunities or yung mga bagong projects na ibibigay sa akin.

“Parang ready po ang kalooban ko, ready po ako emotionally, ready po ako mentally.

“Parang yun po ang interpretation ko ng pagiging prime ko ngayon.”

Speaking of being ready for anything, Jona added, “Pakiramdam ko rin po bilang isang singer o performer, marami pa po akong kailangan na abutin, kailangang gawin.

“So kung masasabi ko bang prime ako ngayon bilang isang performing artist, feeling ko marami pa akong gustong gawin.

“Pero yung pagiging prime na ready yun po yun.”
