"Para sa akin po ang work ay napaka halaga bilang isang single mom. Kaya nagpapasalamat ako sa bagong blessing na binigay ng GMA 7 sa akin.

"Maliit ang mundo ng showbiz kaya alam ko sa puso ko na sa mga susunod na pagkakataon makakatrabaho uli ako sa ABS CBN! I will forever be grateful, No Goodbyes only but good words for ABS CBN :)

"For now, as I embark another journey in my career, im looking forward to be playing a Big Part in this new afternoon soap of GMA 7 entitled PRIMA DONNAS. Salamat mga Kapamilya at Kapuso."

Aiko also gave a teaser for her look as Kendra, her character in Prima Donnas.

She only wrote in the caption, "IM BACK!!! Abangan si #Kendra #PrimaDonnas"

Prima Donnas reunites Aiko with Wendell Ramos, who played her husband in the defunct ABS-CBN series, Wildflower, in 2017.

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"
