Team NIV kicks off MNL48’s Theater Show ‘Party Ga Hajimaru Yo’
After the successful projects and events last year, The Philippine idol group MNL48 started the new year with a bang as Team NIV kicked off their first ever theater show titled ‘Party Ga Hajimaru Yo’ last January 18, 2020 at Movie Stars Cafe.
MNL48 Theater titled 'Party Ga Hajimaru Yo' which means 'Let's Party!' is the group's first theater show since their debut following their international sister group AKB48’s ‘idols you can meet’ concept wherein shows and concerts were being held daily for fans. Moreover, MNL48 Theater is uniquely different from any other events as they bring about exclusive songs, new costumes and new performances from each team (Team MII, Team NIV, and Team L).
To set the mood of the theater show, team NIV – Aly, Abby, Jem, Rowee, Coleen, Brei, Ruth, Lara, Belle, Joyce, Alyssa, Miho, Ecka, Jaydee and Daryll – hyped the fans up by performing their hits ‘Talutot Ng Sakura’ ‘Umiindak Na Saya’ ‘MNL48’ ‘Christmas Eve’ and ‘Tara Na Party’.
Meanwhile, the crowd went wild and the light sticks were up as the girls performed their newest songs exclusive just for the theater show – such as ‘Dear My Teacher’ ‘May Lasong Mansanas’ ‘Classmate’ ‘Bawal Na Halik’ ‘Tala’ and ‘Bughaw Na Kalangitan’ – wearing their new and stylish costume that highlighted their elegance and beauty on stage.
And to entice the fans even more, Team NIV dropped a surprising announcement when they officially welcomed Kenkyuusei Karla as the newest member of MNL48. “Maraming salamat posa sumuporta sa’kin since gen 1 hanggang ngayon po, and finally official member na po ako ng MNL48. Gagawin ko po ang best ko as MNL48 po.” MNL48 Karla enthused.
With the success of the event, Team NIV’s captain MNL48 Ecka expressed her gratitude towards their beloved fans (MNLoves), “In behalf of Team NIV nagpapasalamat ako sa pagpunta ninyo dito. Sa walang sawa na pagsuporta sa amin, hindi lamang sa Team NIV, lalo na sa buong MNL48. Lahat ng effort, puyat at pagod ay nawala dahil sa mga fan chants at palakpakan ninyo.”
After the outstanding theater show, the event allowed fans to high-five, not only their oshis but with every Team NIV in their hi-touch session. And to end the show, MNL48 Ecka concluded the show with her genuine appreciation to the fans “From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for being here today and to your unending support sa MNL48. Sana ay suportahan nyo kaming lahat bilang isang grupo. MNL48 TEAM NIV.. Maraming Salamat Po!”
