Comedian act London Boots Tamura Atsushi revealed his wish for AKB48’s Kashiwagi Yuki to appear on their radio show next week, following reports of her alleged relationship with NEWS Tegoshi Yuya.
When a listener sent in a question asking him which female talent he’d like to invite on the show, Atsushi said “AKB is good. Kashiwagi will do. There’s lots of things i want to ask.”
His partner Tamura Ryo then commented “You can’t!” to which Atsushi asked “Why can’t I! Are you a speech dictator?”
With regards to the scandal, Atsushi said “I have nothing to do with his, so i’m going to ask alot. Please book Kashiwagi san! Kashiwagi san if you hear this please come next week!”
Kashiwagi has resumed posting work-related updates on Twitter but maintains her silence on the scandal.
