SB19 members make first public appearances after settling ownership of group name
Pablo, Josh, Stell, Ken and Justin of SB19 are on a high after making a splash in their first public appearance in various events shortly after retaining their group name with former label ShowBT Philippines.
During an awards show of an e-commerce platform, Pablo and Stell showed off their vocal chops through their respective solo stages, a duet of their song “Liham,” and a mini showdown of the smash hit “Gento.”
The 1Z Entertainment CEO did a cover of JK Labajo’s “Ere,” while “The Voice Generations” coach performed his own renditions of “That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars and “Marvin Gaye” by Charlie Puth.
Pablo and Stell then joined forces for a duet of their 2023 song “Liham,” as seen on CinemaBravo’s X (formerly Twitter) page.

“It’s Showtime” mainstay host Vice Ganda, who was also present at the awards show, shared a photo of himself with the P-pop idols on his Instagram Story.
Meanwhile, Josh and Justin made a surprise appearance at a Christmas party of a consumer goods company, where they also did a short performance of “Gento.”
A video of Josh and Justin’s appearance was posted by one @castrotrix on Instagram, and was reshared by several fan accounts including one @joshxjah on X.

Ken, on the other hand, delighted fans with a “Moving Closer” performance on the Wish 107.5 Bus. The video was uploaded by one JustinTime on their YouTube channel.
SB19 has yet to make their first public appearance as a group, as of this writing. They are set to perform at the upcoming Asia Artist Awards at the Philippine Arena on Dec. 14.
The quintet’s solo appearances came shortly after their company 1Z Entertainment announced it settled the ownership of their group name with their former agency ShowBT Philippines after an “amicable agreement.”
