Pererira, a social media influencer, became known on the radio as the DJ from RadioAktiva. In this role, she announced reggaeton, pop and plancha hits while saving money for college tuition. Through this youth radio station, she became one of the most beloved DJ/announcers, not only for her knowledge of music but also for her charm and good energy during her daytime show El Gallo (The Rooster). Among her many qualities, the Cucuta-native is also recognized for her ability to make different voices and create fictional characters, like “Miguelito,” a boy who claimed to be the son of César Augusto Londoño, a fan of Barcelona known for his critical commentary that many find appealing.
Monica Escobedo is an actress, presenter, and comedian. After trying her luck in all of these areas, she developed a passion for comedy. “The stand-up genre is going through one of its best moments right now. And while at first people didn’t really ‘get’ it, today it’s one of the most sought-after fields, and that fills me with pride because it means we’re going in the right direction, opening many doors,” shares Escobedo. Her stand up touches on current issues—like relationships and breakups.
