Yoyoy Villame

Yoyoy Villame (born Roman Tesorio Villame on November 18, 1932 - Died May 18, 2007) was a Filipino singer, composer, lyricist, and comedian. He was a native of Calape, Bohol. He was the father of singer Hannah Villame. On May 18 2007, he died of cardiac arrest at the Las Piñas Medical Center.

Before getting his break in the music industry, Yoyoy was at one point a jeep driver and at another, an army draftee who fought in the government’s anti-insurgency campaign in Central Luzon. He went back to Bohol to become a bus driver, and there he formed a rondalla combo with his fellow bus drivers as band mates. The owner of the bus company finally took notice of Yoyoy’s efforts, setting up a music studio named Kinamay Records just for Yoyoy. His first recording was entitled Magellan recorded in 1972, was the beginning of a long span of albums and recordings of his politically inspired songs in Visayan, Tagalog and English.

Among his works include "Butse Kik", a song written from make-believe Chinese-sounding words which Yoyoy allegedly came up with by writing down the names of Chinese stores while waiting for a mechanic to fix his broken jeep in Manila's Chinatown. He also wrote "Philippine Geography" which lists 77 major islands, provinces, cities, municipalities, and towns in the Philippines from north to south. His long list of hits and his entertaining style of music as earned him the title of "King of Philippine Novelty Songs."

He began making movies in the early 1970s, and was noted for his role in the 1974 suspense thriller Biktima (1974). In 2004, Yoyoy played a Visayan troubadour in the critically acclaimed movie, Babae sa Breakwater (Women of the Breakwater).
