Talent manager Lolit Solis expressed dismay over Ivana Alawi’s—whom she tagged as the ‘Pandemic Star’—postponed showbiz career due to the pandemic.
Ivana started her showbiz career in the talent search show of GMA, StarStruck, where she ended up a part of the Top 14 finalists.
After returning to TV in a guest role on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano and a major character in Mea Culpa: Sino Ang May Sala?, Ivana became more popular because of her YouTube vlogs. Solis expected her to become the next sexy star
On Instagram, Lolit expressed her dismay with the delayed stardom of Ivana.
The columnist/talent manager said that Ivana is more than ready for big TV exposure and her proposed shows could’ve been a hit.
“Ewan ko, pero parang nasayang ang pasabog ni Ivana Alawi na very hot lalo pa nga at pumirma sa Star Magic kaya lang inabot ng pandemic.
“Ang ganda ng mukha, katawan, hinog na hinog pa sa pampainit sa social media at write-ups tapos bigla ngang pumasok ang pandemic.
“Kung hindi, siguro by now ang init na ng publicity nito at punung-puno na ng write-ups at baka super hit na ang first project.
“Ang daming nag-aabang, naghihintay at sana naibigay na ni Perry Lansigan ang pandemic bag ko, pero nabantilawan nga. Pero sure naman na darating din iyan.
“Ivana Alawi is the name, the pandemic star.
