Six years after her network transfer, Kyla's voice won't be heard anymore in GMA-7's Saturday prime-time drama anthology show, Magpakailanman.

Kyla's version has been used in the drama anthology show since it returned to television in 2013.

Even though she did her network transfer to ABS-CBN in 2015, the Kapuso network still used Kyla's version of the "Magpakailanman" theme song.

However, on March 12, 2019, GMA-7's YouTube account uploaded a new music video of "Magpakailanman" featuring The Clash grand winner, Golden Canedo.

The music video featured Golden recording the theme song under the guidance of its composer, Wency Cornejo.

Wency, the son of Magpakailanman host Mel Tiangco, composed and sang the theme song for the show's first incarnation from 2002 to 2007.

The music video also showed a montage of Magpakailanman's old episodes from its second run in 2013 to present.


Kapuso actor Jak Roberto is set to bring life to viral macho dancer, Dante Gulapa, in the upcoming Magpakailanman episode.


Dante Gulapa became viral on social media because of his version of the "Kahit Ayaw Mo Na" challenge.

He also popularized the "Eagle Pose," which earned him the title "Big Papa" of social media.

Jak posted a photo of him in character on his Instagram account yesterday, March 19.

Jak also posted a video today, March 20, of him doing macho dancing at a bar. This will be shown as part of the Magpakailanman episode.


It may be recalled that in an episode of Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Dante Gulapa talked about his previous job as a macho dancer.

In his Instagram story last week, StarStruck 6 graduate Kevin Sagra posted a video of Jak practicing macho dance moves while watching Dante's videos.

In an interview with, Jak revealed that Dante attended their tapings to personally teach him how to do the dance moves.


The Dante Gulapa episode of Magpakailanman is set to air this Saturday, March 23.
