Before all you Aachan fans out there start panicking that she’s leaving AKB48 this Summer don’t worry – she isn’t. There are rumours that Acchan will release a solo single sometime during the Summer specifically on June 22nd. When Tomochin debuted her solo single in January, it was said that she’d be the first of many AKB48 members to do this. Naturally seeing as Aachan is the main front girl of AKB48, she’s a prime candidate to release a solo single.
There is nothing confirmed so far, none of the Japanese media outlets has said anything. What’s strange is it’s a Chinese entertainment website that’s started the rumour so it could all be fake. How can the Chinese know about something the Japanese don’t? Have they leaked something that was supposed to be a big secret? They’ve even said that Acchan’s debut solo single will come in 3 versions. If the story is true then surely there would have been a big fanfare by now to announce it which is why fans are taking the news with a big pinch of salt.
Even if the story is fake, I do believe that it’s only a matter of time before Acchan goes solo. She’s got a massive fanbase that would guarantee a big hit if she debuted as a solo artist.
