MANILA, Philippines — Streetboys member Maynarad Marcellano revealed that there's no rivalry between his group and the Universal Motion Dancers (UMD).

During the press conference of "The Sign: ‘90s Supershow" dance concert yesterday, Maynard said all of them are friends.  

"Magkakaibigan po talaga kami. Ang difference ng dance groups before, may kanya-kanyang style. Kasi po wala pang YouTube, wala pang mapapanood sa internet. Everytime na may grupo, inaabangan ng bawat grupo kung ano ang ipapakita nila, ipapasabog nila," he said.  

"Ayon ang maganda sa grupo nong '90s e. 'Yung camaraderie. We don't compete to anyone. Hindi po kasi competition e. It's all about being united. 'Pag nagkikita po kami, we are all excited. Boys will always be boys, may mga jokes, mga kulitan. 'Yung rivalry at that time siguro sa mga fans lang pero sa amin po magkakaibigan kaming lahat," he added. 

'90s dance group will join forces for "The Sign: ‘90s Supershow" happening on April 19 at Aliw Theater in Pasay City. 

Spencer Reyes will fly from London to join Streetboys members Maynar Marcellano, Danilo Barrios, Christo Cruz, Nicko Manalo, Joey Andres and Michael Sesmundo. The Manouvers headed by Joshua Zamora, Rene Sagaran, Jonjon Supan, Red and Jhon Cruz are also in the concert.
