Luigi Yotoko, whose surname sounds like "otoko" (gay lingo for "lalake"), has become an instant celebrity after the March 20 episode of ABS-CBN's noontime variety show 'It's Showtime'.

And take note, Luigi is even more popular now than some actors out there haha.

'It's Showtime' episode last March 20 had this "Atenista" cutie being picked from the audience to join the show's "Sine Mo 'To" segment.

Luigi (center), along with 2 of his classmate friends, was luckily picked for that segment.

They called themselves as "Boys Boys" and the impact was so high for Luigi (the cutest among the three) that some tween girls from the "Madlang People" made really loud cheers for him.

And many girls (and even guys) at home posted their admirations for Luigi on Twitter and made him among the top trending topics in the Philippines for that day.

The terms "Luigi Yotoko" and "Hi Luigi" were among the trending topics. And even "The Way Love Goes", Luigi's original composition, also made it as tweeters posted links to a Youtube video of his song.

Watch the said video, which now has more than 20,000 hits:

Then just yesterday, April 4, in a taped episode, Luigi returned on It's Showtime's Holy Week Special, and this time as a special guest, performing in a number with one of the show's main hosts, the Annebisyosya herself Anne Curtis.

As expected, Luigi Yotoko trended again, not only in the Philippines but also worldwide.

The hashtag #LuigiYotokoOnShowtime and "Luigi Yotoko" became trending topics both in the Philippines and worldwide.

He's even luckier for getting one hot kiss from Anne after the show.

Anne has dubbed Luigi on Twitter as the "Trending Cutie".

Luigi Yotoko (real name Luis Agustin Gomes Yotoko) is only 15 years old and an incoming Junior at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Because of his newfound popularity, Luigi now has over 33,000 followers on Twitter (@luigiyotoko) and his Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/luigiyotoko1) so far has more than 14,000 likes.
