A male Caucasian drummer is being loved by Filipinos nowadays, and it’s because he has been covering ageless trending Filipino songs while being the ‘drum virtuoso’ that he is, Joey Muha.
Joey is a Canadian drummer from Port Dover, Ontario. He is best known for his innovative YouTube videos, many of which have millions of views, and have been featured on influential websites and shared on social media.
His drum cover of Willie Revillame’s Beep Beep, yes, that one with the very familiar, easy to memorize and very easy to sing lyrics–

–has already gained 63,000 reactions and 31,000 shares as of posting.
Other familiar Filipino songs he did cover were “Wowowee,” the 90’s hit popularized by Jolibee “I love You Sabado”, James Reid’s “Energy Gap” for Milo commercial, the timeless pinoy kids’ song “Ako ay may Lobo”, which we will share with you in the following videos.
And why is Joey loved by Filipino fans? It’s because he listens to them, he responds to some comments, and takes into action some of the songs commented as suggestions by Filipinos.
(To those who say it’s fake, watch his mouth closely as he sings along the chorus of Wowowee at video timer 0:45)
And while we’re at the kids’ song feel, here’s a sample of one of his million youtube views, “I’m a little Teapot”
