Riva Quenery, Vlogger, Social Influencer & Youtube Sensation Holds Her First Big Concert, 'RiVlog Live', At SM Skydome On May 27

RIVA QUENERY is the true general’s daughter. Her dad is Gen. Robert Quenery, PMA 1985 graduate now assigned in Region 7. Riva used to be part of Girltrends in “Showtime”, but she’s now on her own as a vlogger and you tube sensation. Born on May 29, 1998, she’s the youngest of three kids and the only girl. Her dad was against it when she said she wanted to join showbiz.

“He wants me to finish college as I was taking up dentistry,” she says. “But I said baka pagsisihan ko later kapag hindi ko na-try gawin ang talagang gusto ko.”

She started to be a vlogger in 2016 and the name of her vlog is RiVlog, which she runs all by herself. “I post stories about my travels, my dance numbers, and also challenges and requests made by my followers.”

Now known as an online influencer, she got youtube’s Silver Play Button Award, given to those with 100,000 subscribers. She now has almost 350,000 regular followers. She once got into a Twitter fight with Barbie Imperial when bashers accused Barbie of copying Riva’s prank call video. How does she feel now that Barbie plays a lead role in a soap?

“I’m proud and very happy for her. Whatever happened between us, natapos na yun. Tinatawanan na lang namin ang nangyari noon. I think such things naman really happens sometime between friends.”

She’s now staging her first major concert two days before her birthday on May 27, “RiVlog Live!” at the SM Skydome in North Edsa. Her guests are Mariz Racal, Awra Briguela, Zeus Collins, plus close friends Krisha Viaje and Samie Rimando. Produced by Hermie Carreon and directed by Marvin Caldito, you can get your concert tickets at 470-2222 or online at smtickets.com.
