Adrian Policena (born in December 7, 1979 in Lucban, Quezon, Philippines), also known as Chris Tsuper, is a radio disc jockey[1] and recording artist in the Philippines. He is best known for his program Tambalang Balasubas at Balahura (with co-host Nicole Hyala) at 90.7 Love Radio and through Love Radio stations nationwide.

Early life[edit]

Policena took his primary and secondary education in his hometown of Lucban, Quezon. He is also a graduate of Mass Communication at Far Eastern University. When he headed back to Lucena, he was discovered by Lady Love, the station manager of 100.7 Love Radio Lucena. Thus he began to work as "Carlo Valentino" at that station. A year later, he moved to Love Radio Manila upon being discovered by Wilfredo Espinosa, Love Radio Manila's program director.


He moved to Manila for his work at 90.7 Love Radio as "Chris Tsuper", then at afternoon drive. He later switched to the morning slot that became what is now known as the "Tambalang Balasubas at Balahura", a daytime radio show with fellow DJ Nicole Hyala. Together, the program has spanned over a decade, with recording albums and a best-selling book (entitled "Tambalan: Nicole Hyala and Chris Tsuper") as a result of their successful tandem. Several songs performed by him and Nicole were played on all Love Radio (and later, Yes FM) stations.

Due to their success on FM radio, he and Nicole crossed-over to television, as the additional hosts of the Saturday morning edition of Music Uplate Live on ABS-CBN.[2] in 2009. They have become part of Eat Bulaga as segment hosts of "Spogify: The Singing Baes" and "Grabe S'ya!" from 2015 to 2016.
