MARTIN RAMON RAZON NIEVERA is a singer, songwriter, and actor from the Philippines. Currently, he is one of the main hosts of the musical variety show ASAP ROCKS, which is aired daily/weekly on ABS-CBN. 

Along with twin sister Victoria, Martin was born on February 5, 1962, in Manila, Philippines to Bert Nievera and Conchita Razon. Most of his childhood was spent in Hawaii, where his father sang with the group known as The Society of Seven. The Nievera family then took up residence in the Bay Area in California in the late ’70s. Martin graduated from Clayton Valley High School (Concord, California) in 1980.

Inspired by his father’s talent and success, Martin returned to the Philippines in 1982 to begin his own singing career and by June of the same year released his first LP, Martin...Take One. The album achieved platinum status in just five months, which was quite a feat for a newcomer in the industry.

Martin’s success in the field of music carried over to his career as an actor. He has appeared or starred in eleven movies and seven television series and specials. Martin After Dark, his television show on the GMA Network, which lasted for almost a decade (1988 – 1998), won Best Celebrity Talk Show and garnered for him Star Awards’ Best Celebrity Talk Show Host consecutively from 1989 to 1991 and then again in 1993, 1994, and 1996. 

In 2006, the Aliw Awards Foundation Hall of Fame distinguished Martin as Entertainer of the Year and Recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. The Honolulu Adviser likewise named him Best Male Singer and Star of the Year in 1988. He also won at the Abu Golden Kite Awards in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia as Best Interpreter for a Composition in 1990. 

His transfer to the ABS-CBN network in 1998 to 2002 gave the public Martin Late@Nite as well as a television show with Gary Valenciano in July 2010, Twist & Shout. Martin’s film credits include dramas, romance, science fiction, comedy, and action.
