Following a thriving career in music, Nina enters new territory as she signs a management and recording contract under entertainment production company Viva Entertainment.

Nina, who is gearing up to record her seventh album, said she is excited to try acting but admitted that she has much to learn to be a “prepared” actress.

"I'll be going to Singapore para mag-workshop. Kasi ako po talaga aminado na hindi ako marunong umarte. Para kung talagang lumabas man ako sa movie, hindi half-baked, prepared talaga. And for myself din, I want to be prepared. Gusto ko pag pumasok ako sa bagong tatahakin, prepared ako,” she said during the press conference for her contract-signing.

The singer is gearing up for a “soft launch” of her acting career with a musical play, which she said is still currently in the works.

"Madami pang pwedeng gawin like concert nga and acting. Uumpisahan natin sa stage play. It's a big one. Sobrang nae-excite ako,” she said.
