Ben&Ben have landed with a new name for their fandom.
Following last night's Twitter debacle over the name LIGHTs, which is already being used by K-Pop act HIGHLIGHT, the 'Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin' act announced on Friday afternoon (09/04) that their fandom will now be called Liwanag.

From our archipelago, brightness will emanate.
For one more time, we welcome all of you with a fandom name defined by ALL of us:

"Yesterday was a difficult day for all of us," Ben&Ben wrote in a statement. "Possibly however, like how all challenges are, it was meant to bring us closer and make us understand what our purpose really is, beginning with a shared struggle to find our name."
thank you, Liwanag, for being patient with us and going through it all with us. we love you!#BenAndBenLiwanagFandom— Ben&Ben (@BenAndBenMusic) September 4, 2020
Several fans, including Twitter user @Chadmanderrr, also came up with several designs for the band's lightstick.
