1932243_777966008897475_1397448543_nActor SEF CADAYONA or JOHN PAUL JOSEPH CADAYONA in real life turned 25 last March 3.  His rise to fame started when he became the endorser of Selecta Cornetto Ice Cream which instantly became a cult hit in TV advertising.

Sef joined Starstruck Season 5 (2009-2010) and made it to the final 14 group.  He immediately signed a 5-year contract with the GMA Artist Center after the reality talent search program and has been with the group since then.  He can be seen in various Kapuso TV programs, Sunday All Stars, Bubble Gang and Vampire Ang Daddy Ko.

As a post birthday blow-out, GMA Artist Center organized a special Ice Cream Party for the ‘Cornetto Boy’ at the 17th floor of the GMA Building sponsored by Selecta Cornetto, Afficionado, Sundance, Sweet Escape and RRJ.

The event was hosted by Amazing Hosts Betong Sumaya and Tess Bomb!




The highlight of the party is a special dance contest where three talented groups strut their stuff on a makeshift stage and went all out with the hope of taking home the trophy and the honor of the best dance group that afternoon, all in the spirit of fun and for their dance idol and birthday boy SEF CADAYONA.

Here are the contestants:

SIMPLE GUYS (from Baesa, Quezon City)


I AM CREW (from Rodriguez, Montalban, Rizal)


TECHNICAL FORCE (from Dulong Bayan, San Mateo, Rizal)


Judging the competition are GMA PR and Events Manager MARK SABLAN, GMA Talent Recruitment Specialist BING MANALO, Actress MAYTON EUGENIO and the birthday boy himself.
