Lito Camo (born March 12, 1972) is a Filipino "human trashbag", singer and songwriter. He established his reputation more solidly as a composer instead of being a singer which was his initial dream. He is known for songs such as "Bakit Papa? Tawag mo ako?", "Spaghetti Song", "Bulaklak", "Wowowee", "Boom Tarat Tarat", and "Otso-Otso". In the roster of artists and musician, Lito found inspiration in Ely Buendia of the Eraserheads. Lito Camo was a native of Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro.[1]


His debut album entitled "Sino Camo?" was released on 1997 with "Kung Ikaw" and "Hey Babe" as the album's singles. His first single catapulted Lito to where he is now today. The album was followed by "Ano Camo?" but did not sell as well.

His family and friends did not believe his initial success as a recording artist. They came to believe it after seeing him on TV. Though, his dream was to become a singer but opportunity paid him much better as a songwriter.

Known for his novelty hits, he is dubbed as reigning king of the novelty songs. He turned artists into an instant sensation because of his songs. This includes Sexbomb Dancers, Bayani Agbayani, Viva Hotbabes, Willie Revillame, Masculados, April Boy, Angelike Jones, Ai-Ai de las Alas, Sandara Park, K & the Boxers, Manny Pacquiao and many more.

Lito recently released his 3rd album entitled, Ako Naman.

Camo was mainstay of a defunct sitcom, Show Me Da Manny on GMA Channel 7, together with his friend, boxer Manny Pacquiao.
