In an Instagram post today, Aiko said that she will always be grateful to the bosses of ABS-CBN who cast her in teleseryes for the past nine years.

She wrote (published as is), "Nagpapasalamat po ako sa chan 2 sa 9 years na oppurtunity na binigay nyo sa akin na makapag work dahil dito ako nag grow bilang isang actress at hindi ko mararating kung ano ako ngayon kundi dahil sa kanila.

"Nagpapasalamat po ako sa mga Boss ko po sa ABS CBN dahil maayos naman po ang aming relasyon at nakapagpaalam ako ng maayos."

The 43-year-old actress also emphasized the importance of having work as a single mother.

As she looks forward to doing her "big part" in Prima Donnas, Aiko knows that in the future, she will be able to work again in the Kapamilya network.

In her latest Instagram post, Aiko recalls working with Wendell who was known as Jaguar in Wildflower. She wrote: "Happy To be working again with @wendellramosofficial and Ms Chanda Romero, We never had the chance to work with each other. We were in one film pero di ko sya naka eksena finally working with her! Excited to be directed by @ginalajar I worked with her as an actress and we all know how good of an actress she is, So many learnings again for sure from her. While Wendell and I have this certain chemistry tlaga but this time di na sya si Jaguar #primadonnas @gmapinoytv"
