Aside from Aiza, Paolo, and Luke, other top-notch musical talents performed in the concert, such as Frenchie Dy, the ‘ultimate champion’ of Star in a Million singing contest of giant network ABS-CBN. Dy is also known as the “Big Time Belter” of the Philippines.

‘Gig sa Taguig’ is not just a night of Filipino music performers as it included the performance from the “XB Gen San Dancers,” the grand champion in ABS-CBN’s “Showtime.”

Among those who played a key role in helping Mayor Lani to stage the twin concerts include Zaida Ignacio, head of the City Tourism and Trade Office, as well as Brgy. Lower Bicutan Chairman Ricardo “Ading” Cruz Jr., Brgy. Western Bicutan Chairman Nicky Supan, and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Federation President Ricardo “Goma” Cruz III.

Meanwhile, Public Information Office chief Atty. Darwin Icay said Mayor Lani also sponsored another free concert last night, April 25, this time for the city hall officials and employees, public school principals and teachers, and barangay staff.
