I thought "say hello to" can only be used when being introduced. What's mean here?

Good question! The expression is used colloquially in this case. Someone can use "say hello to + [something]" to introduce an object, topic, person or even themselves in a theatrical and impressive way. Ex: I just got promoted. Say hello to the new manager! (The speaker is the new manager) Ex: Our company finally got an investor. Say hello to a new successful startup!
