Johnny Kitagawa [1931-2019]

Johnny Kitagawa [1931-2019]

Johnny Kitagawa, the founder of J&A...
the boss, the father, the buddyz, the grandpa of 100++ talents
had passed away last night 9July2019...

before this, on June 18, he had been admitted to hospital after he had collapsed... no further details had been announced till makes the fans conclude he had passed away... but a week after, Arashi had cleared the rumored said that he is still alive...

Johnny had died at the age of 87 due to stroke (read here)

His idea of creating Johnny's still amazed me... he had helped many boys catch their dream, turning the dream into reality...

and he does help us too; the fans around the world in any waysss... I do know how but I know it does... the music, the entertainment from Johnny perspective is totally different... it's above from what people imagine...

one of his final wished is ...

“this world would continue to be peaceful and full of hope so that people could continue to enjoy entertainment,”

and here, I'm as a person who always admired his good deed, want to say a word...

"...He might not a very good person in the past (I'm not sure of it tho; with all the info, rumored, gossip regarding the claims by certain person and mag that I found on the internet, I cannot deny it coz I don't know the truth and if it turns out the truth, it is so disgusting!) YET no one can't deny his good side too... I keep admiring how he treats the child despite their background, and willing to help them face the cruel world... well, the proof is here, as many feel grateful for his doings during their first entrance in JE...

Johnny Kitagawa... He is not here with us but he is there in our heart... in our mind... and he is forever alive in our memories..."
