I think part of the problem likely lies in the fact that there’s a Filipino celebrity (who’s rather popular) who’s named, “Jason Abalos”, without a “y” in the first name.
I’m clearly not Filipino (points to avatar), and Jason Abalos also does exist on Spotify, so I think that maybe had something to do with it.
But that’s just my shot in the dark guess.
Not really sure, honestly.
I’m actually considering an entire artist rebrand just to avoid this in the future (I mean…I have over a hundred followers on Facebook who are almost entirely Filipino because they read my name).
