During the second day of AKB48’s 3-day concert at Tokyo Dome, it was announced that Takahashi Minami, who is one of the founding members of the group, will finally be making her solo debut!
As the first song for the encore, Takahashi and Maeda Atsuko performed their duet song “Omoide no Hotondo” together, and while they were holding each other crying, Maeda told Takahashi, “There is a video for you from Akimoto-Sensei.” Then, Universal Music’s chief operating officer, Max Hole appeared on the screen, and said that they are welcoming Takahashi as a solo singer.
It’s known that debuting as a solo singer was one of Takahashi’s dreams, thus the venue was full of “Minami call”. Takahashi couldn’t help but sob as she said, “I was able to make my dream come true. Thank you very much to you all.”
The details on her solo debut are unknown at this moment.
