MNL48 April celebrants treat their fans to a day filled with fun games and cheerful performances in their Seitansai event on April 14, 2019 at Movie Stars Cafe.
As Belle will be turning a year older on April 17, Madie on April 16, and Sela on April 28, the girls performed their newest single “Bingo!,” “Igai Ni Mango”, and “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” together with the Senbatsu. The birthday celebrants also prepared special games such as “Tama Go Cheeks” and “Ms.MNL” for their fans.
But the most special part of the event is the message from Sela, Belle, and Madie’s family which made the teen idols emotional.
Madie’s parents, Zaldy Epilogo and Marinor Epilogo sent their heartfelt message to their daughter. “Hi anak, happy birthday, wish ko lang na lagi kang in good health, in good faith, and laging si Lord ang inuuna at ang wish ko pa is maging blessing ka sa lahat ng tao na nakapaligid sayo. Alam mo naman na simula pa ng day one na nag-decide kang pumasok diyan sa MNL48 fully supported ka namin ng mommy mo until now na andiyan ka na. Ingatan mo lang lagi sarili mo. Happy birthday and more power, more blessings.”
Riza Bismanos, Belle’s aunt, narrated how her niece was confident since she was a kid. “When belle was just a little girl I already saw star qualities in her, alam mo ‘yung mafi-feel mo na parang a star is born ganon siya. Very confident on stage kahit nung maliit pa siya sumasali ‘yan sa mga beauty contest. She can really light up the room with her presence during sa mga party, ganon siya. Isa siya sa nagpapasaya sa mga party namin at home, so siguro yon isa sa mga namimiss namin now that she’s really very busy with MNL48,” she said.
“From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of our family I would like to wish you a very happy birthday and that God will continue to bless you with all the things that make you happiest. Don’t forget that we will always support you and that we will always be your number one fan, and always keep your feet on the ground. Always be grateful to God for everything that he has blessed you with. We love you, happy birthday,” her aunt greeted.
“Kung meron talagang idol para sa mga kabataan masasabi ko talagang ‘tong mga anak ko lalo na yan si ineng (Sela), parang sinaunang tao ang utak niyan,” shared Mena Guia, Sela’s mother.
Lucky fans also had a chance to wish their Oshi a happy birthday, “advance happy birthday! Laban lang, support ka lagi namin, galingan mo lang,” greeted Beejay Terno to his idol Madie who will be turning 16 this year.
“I’m wishing for your success sa career mo, pagpatuloy mo ginagawa mo and please stay beautiful,” said Leonel Sanchez to Belle as she turns 18 this year
“Happy birthday, Sela! Wish ko sayo matupad lahat ng pangarap mo at sana lagi kang masaya. Alam kong proud na proud sayo ang family mo. And lagi kang mag-smile ‘wag mo masyadong baguhin sarili mo, enjoy lang at lagi kaming andito para sayo,” Ralph Sarmiento wished to his oshi Sela.
The girls also expressed their happiness towards their fans for continuously attending events and supporting them in their idol journey.
“Thank you sa management dahil sa kanila nabigyan kami ng opportunity para i-share kung ano man meron kami. Nagiging inspirasyon na po kami sa inyong lahat, at sa lahat po ng pumunta po dito ngayon thank you po sa pagbigay ng time dito sa birthday namin. Dito sa MNL48 na feel ko ‘yung growth and appreciation ng tao. Sobra-sobrang na-aappreciate namin ‘yon at mahal na mahal namin kayo (fans). Sobrang happy ako na nakasama ko kayo,” Belle exclaimed.
