MNLoves show support to MNL48 September Seitansai celebrants
Fans have gathered at Movie Stars Café last September 8, 2019 to give their support to and celebrate with September celebrants MNL48 Dani and Dana, whose birthdays are on September 20 and 30, along with MNL48 Yzabel, who turned a year older last September 2.
To officially start the event, the second year Senbatsu members sang their fourth single’s coupling song ‘So Long’ as their opening act. Loud cheers were heard from the crowd when Seitansai celebrants entered the stage to give the audience their exclusive performance together, singing their own version of the famous ‘Bagsakan’ by Parokya ni Edgar featuring Francis M and Gloc-9. After their breathtaking rapping, the surprise VTR greetings from their families were shown on screen that gave them mixed emotions.
The fans were all smiles as Dani, the first performer, enthralled them with her voice as she sang ‘Move’ by the Little Mix and danced to Jennie’s ‘Solo’ and Rihanna’s ‘B**** Better Have My Money’.
She later on expressed that she felt happy after her performance. Dani also wanted to thank everyone who came to the event, especially her own fans. “Thank you po lalo na sa fandom ko kasi sila po talaga yung nag-effort para maging succesful po itong event.” Being fond of knock-knock jokes herself, she made the crowd laugh with her corny albeit punny jokes.
Cosplayer and cat lover Yzabel captivated the audience when she went on stage in her all-pink outfit and big fluffy cat ears. As the fans fell in love with her mash-up of ‘Nobela’ by Join The Club and ‘Hanggang Kailan’ by Oranges and Lemons, she also gave them an exceptional sing-and-dance performance of Ariana Grande’s ‘Boyfriend’ and ‘7 Rings’.
Not only that, she also had an instructional demonstration on stage of how to make a Nigiri, a type of sushi. She then gave away a few of the nigiri that she prepared herself to the fans who were overly excited as they try to get a taste of the famous Japanese food.
“I'm happy na they're there, lalo na yung fans po, they made the event possible,” MNL48 Yzabel said, “Thank you so much for the time you spent today and thank you so much for the love. We love you so much and we tried to give back as much as we can.”
Dana, the last of the three to perform solo, wowed the audience with her exceptional skills in drums as she played the instrument along with the song ‘Alapaap’ by Eraserheads. Fans also enjoyed her dance performance with other group members of remixed hit songs through the years. The crowd erupted into joyous screams as Dana had a duet with fellow MNL48 member Jem to the romantic song of Moira dela Torre and Jason Marvin’s ‘Ikaw at Ako’.
She concluded her performance by dancing to ‘Trouble Maker’ and ‘River’ by Bishop Briggs. Dana was happy she was able to give her best in her performances despite not having enough practice before the event. She would also like to thank the fans who made it to this month’s Seitansai. “Akala ko po wala pong pupunta since maraming pong events na darating this September, kaya sobrang happy ko po kasi naka-attend pa rin po sila ng Seitansai and nakapag-cheki po kami kanina.”
The Under Girls performed ‘Gingham Check’, a coupling song from MNL48’s fourth single ‘Ikaw Ang Melody’, which was performed by the Senbatsu members after. They later on joined the September celebrants on stage as the three received their cakes, made a wish and blew the candles, and gave their final messages. This event truly serves as a memorable and special day for the girls as it was a success after all.
