Drag Name Origin

Carubio's stage name originated both from the stage names of Raja and Aja of RuPaul's Drag Race. Since Raja and Aja are famous drag superstars, Carubio decided to take the letters A,J and A then just add J and then Jaja was born.

In the Philippines, Carubio's home country, "Jaja" also means Haha.
