On November 19th it was revealed that president of the agency, Mr. Johnny Kitagawa (81) has been certified with another Guinness World Record, this time as “Most Number of Singers who have achieved the No. 1 position Produced by an Individual “, making this his third Guinness World Record. In addition, one person who has contributed to this Guinness world record, KinKi Kids’ member, Domoto Koichi (33) announced today the production of “Endless SHOCK” (Tokyo Imperial Theater).

Mr. Johnny was watching over the meeting somewhere in the building when the good news was sent. Last year he was awarded with 2 other Guinness World Records; “Most Concerts Produced by an Individual (8,419)” and “Most No.1 Singles Produced by an Individual (232)”, followed by his third, “Most Number of Singers Produced by an Individual who have achieved the No. 1 position (35)”. It was revealed also that among those artist, Domoto Koichi is included to which he commented “I’m also happy for me then”.

The presentation of the certificate was decided in November 14th when a Chairman of Guinness World Records visited Japan. After watching the commemorative production “JOHNNY’S World” (Tokyo Imperial Theater), he handed over the certificate of approval some days later. Just recently, Johnny Kitagawa had stated he wanted to set 1 or 2 more Guinness World Record, all the more reason to feel modest and happy he added, “Keeping the #1 spot is a troublesome thing but as long as they want to keep making music and becoming number one then it’s a natural thing”.

On top of this happy announcement, there’s still the grief over the death of Mori Mitsuko (92) who passed away just recently. “I was surprised to hear she passed away. I don’t want to remember. Like family, we were really close. Even now I feel like she’s here. I think we all feel that way”.

However, to overcome this grief, Mr Johnny has decided to aim for his 4th Guinness World Record, “Michael has more than 7, right? I think is important to set new records. While defending the 3 records we have, it’s important to always keep challenging new ones”. The challenge of this 81-year-old continues.

Wow... the ranking look amazing! Glad to see KAT-TUN in TOP 5.

And, KinKi Kids and KAT-TUN the only group in TOP 5 that had "consecutive no.1 since debut", right? I know KinKi already break the records for that, and KAT-TUN coming 2nd so far ^^ So proud of them!
