Aside from MNL48, other guest performer includes the Shamisen player, a Japanese traditional instrument, Mr Keisho Ohno as he taught the students of the history and technicalities of Shamisen and hyped up the crowd performing traditional Japanese music like ‘Tsugaru Jongara Shinbushi’, ‘Tsugaru Aiya Bushi’ ‘Tsugaru Tanto Bushi’ and modern music like ‘Sakura Fubuki’ ‘007: James Bond’s theme’ ‘Seiya’ and more.

As a person who dreams high and strive harder reaching her goals, MNL48 Sheki shared what motivated her entering the world of MNL48, “What motivated me to enter MNL48 are my dreams; I really wanted to showcase my talent and be part of something that has a purpose and that is to inspire people to achieve their dreams in life. Being part of MNL48 is not just being part of a girl group but being in a family that makes you grow more as a person. This taught me to strive hard and work hard because we became as a medium for youth and other people, for them to do good and be the best version of themselves.”

J-Melody Concert was just one of MNL48’s exciting events this December as the group will end 2019 with series of events including their first ever Theater Performance ‘Party Ga Hajimaru Yo’ with Team L on December 17, 2019 at Movie Stars Cafe and their ‘High Tension’ mall show at Fisher Mall, Malabon on December 13, 2019.
