09.09.17 marks the day of Cebu’s biggest hip hop beach party at the Ibiza Beach Club, Movenpick Hotel, Cebu. I’m so grateful to have been a part of such a fresh event, thanks to Ed Roberson who made it all come to life. Ed Roberson and his wife, Marivic moved to Cebu only a few months ago and they have already turned Cebu’s party scene around. Both from San Francisco, they brought their expertise and originality to nightlife and events, which keeps everyone on their toes waiting to see what they have next in store…
I wasn’t in town for Bay Area Takeover I, but I saw the videos and it was definitely “turnt”! So when Ed approached me to collaborate with him for the second event, I automatically said, YES. He then mentioned that Kehlani’s tour DJ, Noodles and a Bay Area rapper, P-Lo would be performing at the party… I was totally in.
I instantly got my SOLTI Girls together and started planning the SOLTI Activewear runway for the event. The girls and I were super excited and the rest was history! Everything went down smoothly; P-Lo & Noodles killed it, and the SOLTI Girls were just perfect. For those who couldn’t make it, there will be a next time!

Around 9PM P-Lo hit the stage while Noodles spun his songs, including his big new hit, “Put Me On Somthin’”. The SOLTI Girls walked out one by one as P-Lo started performing. They danced and flirted with P-Lo as they posed on stage, showcasing SOLTI’s versatile, colorful, and sexy designs.
