The news is still hoooot. Elmo Magalona, son of the late Master Rapper Francis M, has just signed up to become one of ABS-CBN’s artists. After his father’s death in 2009, Elmo made a name for himself with the support of his former home station, GMA Network. Aside from superb rapping skills, he also rose to stardom because of his pairing with Julie Anne San Jose. The two were more popularly known as JuliElmo. Elmo and Julie Anne eventually pursued their careers separately and the young man is currently in a relationship with Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez.

In ABS-CBN, Elmo is now being paired with teen actress Janella Salvador. In a media launch held today, they were presented to be the stars of an upcoming project, Born for You.
