AKB48 Win At The 26th Japan Gold Disc Awards

28 01 2012

Fans are still trying to come to terms with what happened yesterday with Nacchan and Yonechan so I think we should have some good news about AKB48 and there was plenty for them to celebrate at the 26th Japan Gold Disc Awards.

The Japan Gold Awards are gongs given by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) for outstanding artists which have contributed to the Japanese music industry and are based on actual sales.

AKB48 won the Artist Of The Year which is no surprise considering how they dominated the Oricon Charts last year. In addition they also won awards for Best 5 Album (Japanese), Best 5 Singles, Best 5 Songs By Download, Best Music Videos and Single Of The Year.

AKB48 were not the only 000 group to win an award. NMB48 were also given a gong in the Best 5 New Artists (Japanese) category.

Congratulations to both AKB48 and NMB48.
