‘Pop icon’ Jolina Magdangal praises P-pop sensation BINI


“Bilib na ko sa kanila nung nagumpisa pa lang sila.”

This was among the warm messages shared between the actress-host Jolina Magdangal and the P-pop stars BINI.

The former teen star recently took to Instagram to express her pride and admiration for the P-pop queens.

In her heartfelt post, Jolina, affectionately referring to herself as “BINI Momshie Jols,” reminisced about her initial encounter with BINI on the TV show “Magandang Buhay.”

She wrote, “Hi! I’m BINI Momshie Jols! Genuinely proud of these girl group. Bilib na ko sa kanila nung nagumpisa pa lang sila at nakakwentuhan namin sa Magandang Buhay. Pero mas humanga ako ngayon dahil ang daming nilang achievements and recognitions.”

Jolina went on to highlight what she finds most admirable about BINI.

“Pero higit sa lahat[,] ang pinaka admiring sa kanila para sa akin ay hanggang ngayon buo sila at nananatili sila na sila. Walang pagpapapanggap at ka-arte arte. Mas lalong ginagalingan kung ano ang binigay sa kanila na talento,” Magdangal described the P-pop idols.

“Credit also sa mga tao na tumulong at nag-alaga sa kanila na hindi sumuko,” she added.

Concluding her post, Jolina emphasized that her message was simply an expression of her appreciation for BINI, with no special occasion or celebration prompting it.

“‘Yun lang po.. Walang okasyon walang selebrasyon, gusto ko lang share ‘yung appreciation ko sa mga batang ito,” she expressed.

Members of BINI responded to Jolina’s post with heartfelt comments.

Maloi commented, “WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH PO MAMSHIE JOLS 🥺 isa po kayo sa pinaka-genuine na tao na nakilala po naming BINI 🥺.”

Jhoanna added, “Awww 🥺 thank you poooo momshie jolsss ❤️‍🩹.”

Sheena shared, “We love you po momshie jols 🥹🤍.”

Stacey expressed, “Thank you so muchhh po our BINI Momshie Jols🫶🏻.”

It is worth noting that Jolina popularized classic Pinoy expressions and songs such as “Chuva Chu Chu”, as well as unique looks and fashion styles, becoming one of the pop culture icons in the 90s.

Meanwhile, the octet is set to mark its third debut anniversary with the “National Happy Bini Day” event on Tuesday, June 11, at One Ayala in Makati.

Following the event, the group also announced that they would soon be releasing a single called “Cherry On Top”.
