MNL48 treats fans for another back-to-back Lawson and Mall tour for third single

by MNL48 Philippines

Following the continuous mall shows and Lawson tours of the idol group to promote their third single, MNL48 Sela, Gabb, Dian, Amy, Grace, Kyla, Thea and Shaina bond with their fans at Starmall EDSA Shaw on April 14, 2019, while Rans, Jamie, Ash, Jem and Center Girl Aly dropped by the Lawson branches in Tycoon Center, Silver City in Ortigas and One World in Bonifacio Global City on the same day.

MNL48 Team L performed “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel”, “Bingo!”, and their recently released music video, “Igai Ni Mango”, that made the crowd cheer joyfully.

Amy shared that she still felt overwhelmed on her second time in a mall show with MNL48. “Nakakatuwa po kasi, ‘yung mga fans po grabe po ‘yung support nila sa MNL48, sobra po akong nagpapasalamat dahil official member na po ako, di ko ine-expect lalo na bago palang po ako kaya iniisip ko po na wala pa po ako masyadong exposure.”

“First po talaga sobra po talaga akong natatakot sa mga bashers, takot akong humarap dahil sa issue tungkol sa Interactive Live na sobrang kulit ko, bumaba po self-esteem ko at hiya po ako humarap palagi sa camera, nung mall show di ko po inaasahang mainit nila akong tatanggapin kaya sobra akong natutuwa ngayon mas masarap lumaban at magpasaya dahil sa kanila,” Amy added.

On the other hand, although Jem admitted that the group’s schedule is a bit tiring, she emphasized that being busy is a dream-come-true for each of them. “Hanggang ngayon naninibago pa rin ako and naa-amaze every time na nakikita ko ‘yung weekly schedules namin. Dati vini-visualize lang namin if paano ‘yung feeling na everyday ang performances and now we're already living our dreams and expectations sobrang nakaka-overwhelm and nakaka iyak parin isipin na, we're already harvesting the fruits of our hard works and sacrifices.”

“I'll never deny the fact na may mga times na nakakapagod at nakakapanghina pero for me normal lang ‘yun as an idol kasi we're carrying a lot of responsibilities. Pero kasi ako may source of energy ako every time na feeling ko nalo-lowbatt ako, my team. Every time na nakikita ko ang efforts and sacrifices ng MNLoves nagigising ako sa fact na if our fans are willing to take everything just to support us, dapat ganun din kami. ‘Yung smiles and laughter nila ang nag mo-motivate sa akin to continue my journey,” Jem added.

Moreover, Ash further elaborated how these exposures can help MNL48 as a whole. “I think that the mall shows and Lawson tours help us get out of our comfort zone and meet new people. People get curious once they see something new. The more exposed we get, the more we will be able to introduce ourselves and show them what we can do.”

Meanwhile, the idols also promoted their Handshake event this coming June 29, 2019 at Movie Stars Café, where fans will have the chance to interact and have a memorable shake hands with their Oshi.

by MNL48 Philippines

After the success of “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” single, MNL48 premiered “Igai Ni Mango” music video starring Team L Second Year members on the group’s official YouTube channel on June 8, 2019.

“Igai Ni Mango” is the coupling song of MNL48’s third single and the 21st single of their international sister group SKE48. The music video was shot in several locations inside one of the popular amusement parks in the Philippines, Star City.

img-002.jpg

“The concept of the music video was a reminder for all teenagers to enjoy their teenage life in this fast-paced era. We want to give a young and wholesome music video to the fans that’s why instead of shooting it on the beach just like the other group did, we decided to shoot it on amusement park to show that there’s another way to enjoy your summer break,” Zeph Burgos, the director of the music video and the creative head of MNL48 said.

img-003.jpg

As a Center Girl for the music video, Sela expressed how she felt happy that Team L was chosen to perform the song, “Nakakatuwa kasi minsan lang naman namin ma-experience ito kasi most of the time puro lang kami trabaho, wala na kaming time para makapagunwind. Pero ngayon itong music video ay isang malaking blessing saming Team L kas nagka-chance kami na makapag-saya at tinuring narin namin itong part ng isang malaking memory namin dito sa MNL48.”

img-004.jpg

“’Yung experience po namin sa music video is very bizarre kasi hindi namin naramdaman na nag-work kami. Naramdaman lang namin na nag-saya kami at nag-bonding lang kaming buong team L,” Sela added

Moreover, Yssa narrated her experience doing a music video for the first time since she just entered the idol group. “Para sakin po unforgettable po ito kasi po sobrang saya ko na finally natupad na po ‘yung pangarap ko na matagal ko na pong hinihintay. Nakakapagod pero alam po namin na sobrang worth it po lahat ng hirap namin dito sa music video na ito.”

Meanwhile, MNL48’s “Igai Ni Mango” music video hashtag #MNL48IgaiNiMango quickly reached the top spot on the Philippine Twitter Trends upon its release.

MNL48 joins World Health Organization to urge Filipinos not to use Tobacco

by MNL48 Philippines

Staying true to their mission of being good role models to inspire young men and women, MNL48 Sheki, Brei, Rans, Sela, Abby, Coleen, Belle, Jem, Faith, Lei, Kay, Sayaka, Dian, Dana and Ruth participated in World Health Organization's (WHO) World No Tobacco Day 2019 at Paco Arena Events and Sports Center on May 31, 2019.

WHO, in partnership with the Department of Health Metro Manila organized a basketball clinic attended by almost a hundred youth, aiming not just to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco to people’s health, but also to encourage them to strengthen their immunity by engaging themselves in sports.

Considering that children are said to be the hope of our nation, OIC-Director of the Department of Health Metro Manila Center for Health Development, Dr. Corazon Flores appealed to them not to get involved to tobacco use. “We want to encourage you, kayo po ang pag-asa ng bayan, wag niyo hayaan na maudyukan kayo ng masama. We encourage everyone to do activities kasi sisigla ang katawan natin at bibilis ang pag hinga. The more we enjoy what we’re doing, the more we will live long and healthier life. Let’s protect our bodies from diseases and our environment in pollution.”

As the Philippines’ idol group supports the campaign, MNL48 are delighted to share their talents to the youth performing their hit tracks “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” and “Bingo!”.

“Thank you World Health Organization for inviting us and it’s an honor po na maging part ng ganitong event and siyempre makapag-perform in front of you. Kami po we sing and dance kaya super important po sa amin ‘yung maging healthy ‘yung lungs namin, kaya we encourage you po to support no tobacco,” Sheki said.

In addition, Jem shared that being able to become one of the advocates of World Health Organization is a privilege for the group to show that they have the qualities of a true idol.

“Sobrang saya po na napasama po kami ditp kasi feeling ko ngayon sobrang na-serve po namin ‘yung responsibility namin as an idol. ‘Yung sa iba po pure entertainment lang po ‘yung purpose namin, dito we entertain people and at the same time parang naging advocate po kami. Parang we are working for such great goal for this event, para po makapag-influence po sa mga Filipinos lalo na po sa mga kabataan.”

img04.jpg

“You need to remember na as long as you’re young, you need to take care of yourself. Lahat po ng body parts natin is important expecially ‘yung lungs natin because we use it every time we breathe, so pag nahirapan tayo huminga we cannot live a happy life,” Jem concluded reminding everyone not to use tobacco.
