Philippine Telenovela Craze Hits Africa

ABS-CBN’s drama series like The Promise (Pangako Sa Yo), Timeless (Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas) and The Long Wait (Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay) are all blockbuster hits in Africa.

“African TV stations broadcast at least one ABS-CBN Philippine telenovela a day while the other TV stations air two to three times a week,” says Reena de Guzman-Garingan, International Sales and Distribution Director at ABSCBN Broadcasting Corporation. “There are channels that have been broadcasting two Philippine telenovelas from Monday to Friday and another one on Saturdays and Sundays. In countries like Kenya, Cameroon and Tanzania at least two networks are currently airing ABS-CBN Philippine telenovelas, which always consist in 45-to-50-minute episodes,” explains the executive.

Kristine Hermosa is now a superstar in Africa as the continent was hit by Philippine telenovela craze, spawning websites and fan clubs.

“Our telenovelas are the hot items in foreign newspapers; there’s the case of a TV station in Africa that delayed its launch hoping to have the Philippine telenovela stars to grace their celebration. The Philippine telenovela business in Africa is a phenomenon and has captured advertising revenues never achieved before by the networks,” states de Guzman-Garingan.

So why does Africa embrace Philippine stories? The executive said it’s because of the mixture of distinct facial features on the screen, ranging from Asian to Spanish, and also explains that due to the infusion of multicultural context, they have captured both female and male audiences. During the World Cup month, the time slots of The Promise, Timeless, The Long Wait and other ABS-CBN’s telenovelas airing on various networks across Africa were pre-empted. As a result, the male audience was warned by their wives of having no meals on their tables for not having their favorite Philippine telenovela on air.

Kapamilya Soaps Make Waves Across Asia

Work stops. Meetings are adjourned. Staff and top honchos alike rush home to watch “Pangako sa Yo” (The Promise), “Sana’y Wala nang Wakas” (Timeless) and other ABS-CBN teleseryes. They are so hooked they do not dare miss a single episode. And this phenomenon is happening not in the Philippines—but across Asia, especially in Malaysia, Europe, and Africa, where various ABS-CBN series are being shown.

“’[Pangako Sa Yo]’ has made a name in my country,” wrote Malaysian viewer Tania in a website created by fans of ABS-CBN shows. According to fellow viewers, they have watched many other soap operas from other countries but they were moved with any of those like ‘The Promise’ did. “ The soap has beaten all other soaps we have watched here in Zambia!,” affirms Hildah, another loyal viewer. This audience does not understand Tagalog, and they knew none of our stars at first but now they are self-proclaimed big fans of Filipino actors and actresses, especially of the Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa love team.

And now, Philippine TV’s drama princess Judy Ann Santos and teleserye queen Claudine Barretto are also expected to be huge stars in the international scene with the airing of their shows “Krystala” and “Marina,” respectively, on Indonesia. “Marina,” a mermaid’s tale, is the country’s very first fantasy series (fantaserye) whose phenomenal success has spawned various shows of the same genre. “Krystala” features Judy Ann Santos like you’ve never seen her before: as the generation’s super heroine.

Bringing local programs overseas not only provides entertainment but also serves as a cure for the homesickness to our kababayans based abroad. The shows’ scenes bring overseas Filipinos a piece of home. Trexia, our kababayan based in Kenya, Africa, says, “[ever] since [ABS-CBN shows] were aired here, everyone's been asking me if I'm a Filipino, like their favorite characters in [the series]. Even in the capital city or nearby towns, people always make positive comments. It makes me feel more confident about being a Filipino!”

Other soap operas that are gaining hype abroad are “Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay (“The Long Wait”), “It Might Be You,” “Darating Ang Umaga” (Till Morning Comes), "Bituin" (Star), "Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako" (The Moment You Need Me), "Familia Zaragoza" and ABS-CBN’s long-running drama series “Maalaala Mo Kaya.” This slate of exceptional series has been changing the viewing habits of international audiences for many years now.

Watching it makes me acquanted with the characters of mankind from the practical examples and i am also taught a knowledge of the world through the airy medium of romance in this film. I say special thanks to the characters especially to Angelo and Yna for the close imitation of man and manners.

wow! is pangako sa yo really this popular in other countries?i can't believe it myself. Thumps up to kapamilya ABS-CBN. anyway, pangako was originally shown on ABS CBN here in the philippines. and the ratings were really good. people were concern of the love story of Yna and Angelo over other issues that concerns our country before. hehehe. people went home early just to catch this teleserye, as we call it here. For the info, Jericho Rosales played Angelo and Krisitine Hermosa. they were real life sweethearts before and now has other relationships on their own. Oh, there are many other cool ABS CBN tele serye

Author: Girl_Rulez from Singapore

Well hey.. Ya i would like to comment on this movie.. It was fabulous.. Many people would think that a rich person could not marry a poor person.. Well this is where you are wrong.. In this film, it shows that even though you are rich of poor, u could still marry another person with another status.. It has many of suspense and some emotional features.. You must really see this movie i recommend u.. It has some romantic features.. The place they are acting are not quite bad but if the person is poor, the place must be where poor people are living and well.. I know everything that i'm writing does not make any sense but really i really would like u all to see this show...

PANGAKO SA YO......bravo to the cast and team, 8 May 2008
10/10
Author: mariecris-deguzman from Canada

One of the most endearing and very touching movie. I really enjoyed the cast as well as the storyline. Great acting by all and once more Filipino movies always has a certain touch where it hits you right at the heart!!!!!!

I am impressed on how they are able to profile all the many ways of how people view other people whether it be by status, gender or race. It was done in a way that I looked forward to coming home and watching the next episode.Keep up the good work on making Filipino movies very enjoyable and adding a cast of good actors and actresses.

Ina and Jericho really have a nice chemistry with each other and it's so touching to see them when they are embraced with one another with their tears.The older generation actors and actresses I applaud them for being so very professional as they make it seem like it is so real.I hope that there will be a continuation of this series.

Pangako Sa Iyo, 8 November 2007
10/10
Author: lhccabrera from Canada

Me and my wife have been away from home for 21 yrs and have not really watched any Pilipino movies since. Lately my sisters here have been lending us tele-series movies( we have seen 3 so far) and since then we were both hooked to it.I know for a fact that acting, writing,dancing, singing are just one of the strenghts of our ancestry. These are in our blood as Filipinos. The 3 tele-series we have seen are all superb,starting from the writers, actors,actresses, and all those talented people who made these kind of films possible. Of the 3 movies that I have seen, I like Pangako Sa Iyo the best. Actually I have seen the other 2 movies first before " pangako" and during that time I rated those two movies as the best Pilipino movies I have ever watched not until I have seen "Pangako"(we have just watched volume 30 for now as I was writing this) and YES this is the best ,superb ,dramatic movie have ever been produced .Yna and Angelo did a very superb job and so with the rest of the actors and actresses. Our congratulation to them for a job very well done. No wonder even non-Filipinos abroad love it very much. More power to you all

Love

I like it...., 26 January 2007
Author: mbonair307 from Tanzania

She acted very well along side Angelo. The play was so good in a way that it was ranked number one in Tanzania.

Up to today, people talk about Yna and Angelo. They should visit Tanzania to confirm that...

I was so happy to see finally Yna and Angelo re united after the long journey of family misunderstanding.

There was a time I thought that Madam Claudia was the real mother of Yna and the only problem was that she did not recognize her.

I never thought that even Phillipines people can despise poor people like in most areas in Africa. For example Claudia never liked Yna just because she was coming from poor background.

Thank GOD that she got what she worked for after long sufferings...

i really loved the film.it was fabulous.the actors were all good.two thumbs up.it was a film of pain and joy.it was so nice.the film showed us all and taught us that no matter how rich you are you can still marry a poor person.it was romantic and also lovely.you must watch it.it is an unforgettable film.it is full of emotion and feelings for one another.well there are no words to actually describe the film.there will be no film like that again i guess.if there is i am sure this world would be filled with love there will be no hatred,no boastfulness about been rich,and peace would prevail.

Author: elantranine from Singapore

Hi I';m a great great fan of pangako SA yo. I love this movie cos it is encompasses many features that is happening in the real world. It taught that Love is beyond everything. Love for a person, love your job, love ur family, love ur enemy too!! This movie has opened my mind to every person i know. And to be successful in life is not easy. You must go through a lot of pain to gain success. Love don't come easy. There's a lot of sacrifices to be made. Strong will power, patience and perseverance is a must. Overall it taught us how to LOVE while u r still alive and Appreciate whatever u have in life.......... I love this MOVIE!!

Author: Aina-Paulina Muulila from Namibia

The movie had been start shown in our country about 6 weeks ago by one of the wonderful TV channel'ONE Africa TELEVISION and I find it very interesting and every Wednesday and Thursaday I make sure Iam there to watch it. My sisters and brothers are also crazy about it.I like Yna-Kristine Hermosa most she is great. I wish she can come and visit us at Namibia.I also like Angelo he did not allow his mother to manipulate him to by stoping him to love Yna.he also decide that he is going to love Yna even though she is poor and a maid. I think Angelo is a great guy who know what does it mean to live somebody without considering her back ground and how poor or rich she is. Good lucky to all the actors in the drama.

i really like this movie .from the actress Yna i have learned a lot.i have learned to always always hold to my dreams and never give up .if i were to recommend something i will recommend this film to all African youths it has a great message for them

i really like Yna because i see myself in her.All the actors and actresses are so wonderful they really know how to act .They do their parts so well and real .I love them all

This movie is also good because of its religious background.Through Yna and Agelo the message of abstinence has been brought out.the Movie is void of immorality.As a Christian i will say that is very good.

since i joined ma guardians in Nairobi from upcountry, i found that the the national television(KBC) was airing pangako sa yo' as "the promise" having watched it, i was impressed by the casting and more so, i had gone through exactly what Yna and Angelo had gone. what a coincidence i could not imagine. the cast was excellent. my suggestion is, maybe you could arrange with our 4 local TV stations to market you films and air episodes of the preferred movies as well as soap operas. in this i will greatly appreciate your concern over my wish. i would even rather plead with my guardians to buy a telly instead of visiting our neighbour every evening to catch up with the cast.

A Must Watch "Soap Opera" I Spend 3 sleepless nights watching box1,2,3...twice. What A Shame?I got carried away...i was feeling groggy,had puffy eyes, body was aching...but was worth it...will be watching again!Luv Jericho Rosales n Kristine Hermosa 4 their acting n Beauty.Hope 4 a happy ending? This story is real to life as it can be.Some rich people are heartless, manipulative ,greedy,selfish......"Nobody" want to know you when you are poor,you become a social outcast.This Serial Awakens the soul to humble themselves to the realty of this world.People who are poor in the material world are rich in the soul....This is what "Pangako Sa'Yo"is about! I'ts an Excellent show.....

i have seen Pangako Sa'yo being aired in Indonesia after it was aired here. but it is good to here that those originals were really watched by other countries.
