Andrew Ford Valentino Espiritu (born July 30, 1967),[1] better known as Andrew E., is a Filipino rapper,[2] record producer and actor. He is best known throughout the Philippines for his 1990 debut hit single "Humanap Ka Ng Panget" (Look For Someone Ugly). Espiritu won a 'Rap Album of the Year' award for his latest album Clubzilla at the 2010 PMPC Star Awards for Music.


Espiritu first worked as a DJ in a popular club, Euphoria and was discovered by Guitarman Ramon "RJ" Jacinto in 1991. He made his television debut on That's Entertainment, a variety show hosted by German Moreno on GMA-7. He eventually started his professional career in December 1990 when he released his debut single "Humanap Ka Ng Panget".

Andrew’s career branched out as he began to star in comedy films based on his songs.

In mid 1995, Espiritu founded an independent rap label named Dongalo Wreckords for the purpose of discovering and producing new rap talents, one of them being the rap group Salbakuta, with their debut single "S2upid Luv" becoming a best-seller and spawning a film starring Espiritu.

Espiritu spent some time in Japan in the late 1990s, performing in clubs and eventually releasing a CD single with two rap songs in Japanese about the misadventures of a tourist in Tokyo.

In 2010, he was one of the judges in ABS-CBN's noontime variety/talent show Showtime.

He has notably collaborated with Sharon Cuneta, Willie Revillame, Joey de Leon, Regine Velasquez, Francis M., Ogie Alcasid, Janno Gibbs, Carlos Agassi, Death Threat, Salbakuta, DJs such as DJ Coki of Wil Time Big Time, DJ MOD of Showtime and DJ Belal of New York, and actresses such as Maricel Soriano, Ana Roces, Nanette Medved, Charlene Gonzalez, Vina Morales, Sheryl Cruz, Gelli de Belen, Alice Dixson, Amanda Page, Rufa Mae Quinto, Donita Rose and Rica Peralejo.

Espiritu returned to acting in 2016 as Uge, the biological father of Serena (played by Liza Soberano) in ABS-CBN's drama series Dolce Amore.[3]
