Abelaine Trinidad is MNL48 Center Girl for third generation roster
Last weekend’s episode of “It’s Showtime” has officially announced that Abelaine Trinidad is MNL48 Center Girl for third generation roster. This announcement was made after tallying the votes during the MNL48 Third General Election.
Abby finished Rank 2 during the MNL48 First General Election and then Rank 3 during the second General Election. And now it looks like third time’s the charm.
The MNL48 Third General Election is basically an annual event where fans get to choose who their idols or “oshis” are worthy of being part of the Top 48 girls. This was a system that was also adopted for the original and international sister group, AKB48. The election began March 2020 and ended November 2020.
“Grabe hindi ko ineexpect bilang first generation member na ngayon na naging parte pa rin ng third generation member,” Abby said. “Thank you so much sa binigay niyong opportunity kasi talagang tinulungan niyo ako mag-improve. Kaya po ako nandito dahil sa inyo. Kung wala po kayo wala din po dito. Thank you sa MNLoves, family and friends po. Kaya po ang dahilan kung bakit ako nandito.”
