MOR 101.9 disk jockeys Jhai Ho and Joco Loco join forces again, in a recording project this time, as they collaborated in a fun novelty single “Agey Agey Hey.”
The upbeat song from the “Playlist Pa MORe” radio hosts—lifted from the word ‘aguy,’ the Visayan word for ‘aray’ and then turned into ‘agey’ in gay lingo—is under ABS-CBN Music’s Lodi Records and is produced by Rox Santos.

Jhai Ho said that the idea of making this single began when he repeatedly used the expression ‘agey’ in conversations. “I often speak using the expression ‘agey’ so my friends and I thought of writing a novelty song one day using the term intended for those who had expected requited love and got hurt and those who are still hoping,’ shared the host of the Jeepney TV talk show “Showbiz Pa More.”
“When you get hurt, just sing the song and if even the lyrics throb the emotions a little, it tells you to lift your head high and laugh the pain out,” he added.
DJ Jhai Ho also shared that both he and Joco Loco worked on the lyrics of “Agey Agey Hey.” “I handled the story that many can relate to, especially the beks, while he took on the rap part serving as a ‘sermon’ to avoid being stupid in love,” he said.
The single is Jhai Ho’s second venture into recording. The “Hotspot” online host launched the song “Shiwakare” in 2017 under Star Music.
The song, meanwhile, is a debut music offering by Joco Loco, known as the “Mr. Dimples sa Radyo.”
