 "Keep Pushing": How Almighty Bro Pursued His Dream of Becoming an Influencer

Kimberly D. Alanis

As humans, no excellence in life can be acquired without constant practice just like how Lady Catherine De Bourgh in the classic novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen would say it. With every seed of potential we have and the heart that desires excellence in a particular field, it can grow powerful given the right time, vision, and practice.

This is true for vlogger and one of TikTok's fastest rising influencers gaining 300k followers and 1 million likes in just two months - Benjohn Tribiana, also known as 'Almighty Bro.

He is the guest at Voice of the Youth Network's (VOTY) Episode 46 of "Bilib: Kami Sa'yo" live online segment last May 29 where he shared how his heart's desire for content creation became possible through relentless practice and passion to pursue the things that he loves.

Sharing about himself, Tribiana revealed that he is a Bachelor of Science in Management Accounting graduate at Adventist University of the Philippines. However, despite having the degree, he doesn't want to become an employee and do office work.

What Benjohn wants to pursue is to become a content creator creating inspirational and creative videos to inspire and bring value to other people on different social media platforms.

He started publishing videos on Youtube last 2017, uploading original short cinematic films, travel vlogs, and various content that gained thousands of views and subscribers over time.

Recently this year, he created a TikTok account - another top online video social media platform, where he started his segment 'Advice by Bro', together with his friends Kirby Reselosa and Cezar Del Fuente, posting life-advising and lesson-bearing one-minute videos

"Yung flavor namin is parang nag-uusap lang kami. Casual lang. Kung ano masasabi namin sa topic na ganito and then we talk about it then pinopost lang namin sa TikTok".

Their videos revolve around love, career, relationships, friendship, women empowerment, values, and societal issues where they will share their sentiments, views, encouragement, and advice while sitting and talking to each other in a casual setting. This catchy and relatable content was well received and gained them thousands of followers.

"We want to bring back yung parang turo talaga... yung parang values ng ating parents..."

However, despite the growing success in this field, it is not new to us that just like other content creators, Benjohn also receives bash and criticisms from some online viewers.

"Hindi kami masyadong nag paapekto...relax lang kasi yun nga, dagdag engagement rin yun sayo... kung gusto mo talagang i-promote yung craft mo, yung value..."

While interesting content is a big factor to become a successful influencer, neat and appealing video editing is never out of the list. Benjohn revealed that he is not good at editing videos at first and was also challenged in promoting his craft.

"Noong nag video ako sa sarili ko, hindi siya maganda, like, ang pangit sobra!"

But no one becomes proficient without attempting to learn a particular skill. He invested his time in practicing editing features to make his videos more smooth-transitioned and visually appealing to the viewers. He strived to reach his goal of becoming the Influencer he wants to be.

"Tinuloy tuloy ko lang. Nag practice ako mag edit hanggang ngayon... gusto ko talaga siyang i-pursue eh"

As of this writing, Almighty Bro's TikTok account is already followed by almost 450k followers and has garnered almost 3 Million likes. He uploads videos daily and interacts with his viewers on the online platforms he's in.

More than sharing his story about his pursuit of passion, he wants to encourage everyone, especially the youth, to do the things that they love, what makes them happy, and to have a heart that perseveres.

"As long as you are doing your craft, na yung parang masaya ka diyan sa ginagawa mo, just keep pushing kasi eventually, mare-reach mo rin yung top."

The Influencer also encourages his fellow men at General Santos City to get into the art of content creation as it is a door for opportunities, art, business, and expressing one self's talent and creativity.
