The singer's first solo performance will occur on December 25th during the racing event The Japan Cup.
"A solo debut has been my dream. I'm used to a have a large number of people around, so I get nervous being on my own on variety shows, but when it comes to singing, I think I'll be even more nervous. This is my dream though, so I want to enjoy it," Kasai stated.
The idol has not yet recorded her debut single, but has already looked over the lyrics. "I got excited just looking at it. Its perfect for me! I hope people will listen to it and become happy," she commented.
Tomomi Kasai will become the 9th AKB48 member to go solo.
