AYAKA joined AKB48.

As previously reported, MCZ's AYAKA collaborated with AKB48 to perform at @JAM EXPO 2022, one of the large-scale idol festivals held last weekend at Yokohama Arena.

AYAKA performed "Nemo hamo Rumor," a challenging dance number, in the center position of the AKB48 members.

AYAKA posted a commemorative photo of the event on her Instagram.
A translation of the comment content is as follows in summary.

Thank you very much.
I had the opportunity to collaborate with AKB48 on "Nemo hamo Rumor".
It was very difficult, but we had a lot of fun dancing.
I was very dreadful to be put in the center.
Thank you to all the fans of AKB48 who accepted us. Thank you very much.


AYAKA also took the stage twice on Sunday, the last day of the event, first as JA-NAMIE and then as a solo artist.

According to reports from fans who were there to watch, AYAKA's solo stage was attended by the largest number of other idol group members who came to watch from the audience seats.

It seems that now AYAKA is an idol that idols want to see.
