African fan shows love for Enchong and Maja in chance encounter in Paris

Enchong Dee and Maja Salvador were taking photos around Paris, France when a woman approached them and called them by the name Ethan and Margaux, their characters in the now defunct primetime series “Ina, Kapatid, Anak.”

In a video posted by Enchong on his Instagram account, the Kapamilya actor asked the woman named Alimah, where she watched their show, to which the woman quipped, “In Senegal. It is in Africa. I am very happy to see you because I love this (series) with Margaux, Ethan, and Celine.”

Enchong also took the opportunity to thank their African fans. His caption read, “Shoutout to our beautiful and über supportive Kapamilyas in Africa. Hoping to visit some countries in Africa one day.”

“Ina, Kapatid, Anak,” with the international title “Her Mother’s Daughter” aired in Senegal and other parts of Africa in 2016.

It tells the story of Celyn (Chiu) and Margaux (Salvador), two different women who grew up living two very different lives. Celyn was raised in an impoverished family in a province, while Margaux had the life of a princess as the heiress of the country’s biggest shoe company.

They are fated to become the best of friends but only until a well-kept secret from the past is revealed—Celyn is Margaux’s adoptive parents long lost daughter through a surrogate that took her away. Rivalry ensues between the two and they will fight over everything from status, to family, and even love.

More ABS-CBN content is expected to air in Africa after the network closed a volume deal with StarTimes, the leading digital TV operator across Sub-Saharan Africa, in October last year. The partnership was made in response to African viewers’ demand for more Filipino dramas.
