Sexy actress Ivana Alawi has declared her loyalty to ABS-CBN amid the shutdown.
Several artists have now decided to shift to other networks but it seems that the internet star will stay “forever” with the Kapamilya network.
Alawi signed an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN on February 7, 2020 and was tapped to play the titular character of the upcoming TV series Ang Lihim ni Ligaya.
This was supposed to be her first lead role in a series but it was unfortunately delayed by the pandemic and ABS-CBN’s forced closure on May 5, 2020.
In a statement, Alawi said she is proud of moving to her dream network despite the situation.
“I’m proud that I got a chance to sign with my dream network and I will forever be a Kapamilya,” Alawi said.
She also encouraged ABS-CBN employees who lost their jobs to keep their hopes up.
She added, “And doon sa mga employees na nawalan ng work, God has a better plan for all of us. Kapit lang, mga Kapamilya.”
