Aki-P Receives Award With AKB48 Then Insults Them!

10 11 2010

4 members of AKB48 (Kojima, Yuko, Sae and Takamina) went along with producer Aki-P to receive the “Trend People Award (Wadai no Jinbutsu sho)” on behalf of the whole of AKB48 at an awards ceremony yesterday. Aki-P talked about how the members 5 years ago (I’m assuming he was talking about the 1st gen Team A) had no manners and were terrible, insulting them further by saying he thought they’d come from a jungle but thanks to the support from everybody they were now much better. I don’t know how Takamina and Kojima having been in AKB48 from the start felt about his comments but I wouldn’t think they would have been pleased.

EDIT: Having watched a video of them talking at the event, I think Aki-P said his comments in jest and not in a serious manner!
