YOYOY VILLAME: A Tribute by Gwatsinanggo YOYOY VILLAME: A Tribute by Gwatsinanggo
Who would ever forget the song, "chong koi la tsi di di kong kong na a butse kik ik ik ik"... I'll miss this guy.

I took this from the Inquirer news article:

Novelty singer and comedian Roman “Yoyoy” Villame died Friday afternoon of an apparent heart attack, some five hours after being rushed to the Las Piñas Medical Center complaining of chest pains, hospital staff and family members said.

Born in 1938, Villame was a former jeepney (minibus) and bus driver from the island province of Bohol and is best known for his comedic antics, as well as his Tagalog and Visayan novelty songs.

One of his songs, the popular “Mag-exercise Tayo,” hit the charts in 1977. He also composed the cutesy tongue twister "Butse Kik."

His first recording entitled Magellan (1972), “was the beginning of a long span of albums and recordings of Yoyoy’s humorous yet politically relevant songs in Visayan, Tagalog and English that was uniquely his own style,” said the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit in its Online Registry of Filipino Musical Artists.

Dubbed "The Novelty King," Villame recorded more than 40 albums in his career as a singer.

"What is Iran? Iran ng taktakbo." A line from one of his songs. He was a very funny Visaya.
