Kentaro's backstory:

Born on Oshima Island, Kentaro Ichiyama started from humble beginnings.

His father was a fisherman and his mother was a schoolteacher. As the oldest of

three siblings, he always dreamed of giving a better life to his younger brothers. He

was swept away to Tokyo when he was in his early teens to play a popular Japanese

Game Show called “Gaki no Tsukai”. The objective of this game is to make it through

all the challenges without laughing. Because of his wholesome and somewhat

deadpan sense of humor, Kentaro did not find any of the outrageous antics

particularly funny. He ended up winning the game and raking in the cash prize. He

soon found himself caught up in the life of a young Tokyo starlet. While he enjoyed

playing piano, drinking boba tea, and swimming during the summer, he realized that

he needed to invest both his time and money in greater things. He began to explore

fashion, photography, and philanthropy towards the arts. His fame quickly rose in

Japan, so much so that he wanted to become an international household name. Thus,

he moved to LA to further his franchise stateside. He travels across the country to

market himself and invest in future artistic endeavors. As of now, Kentaro spends

his time appearing on television interviews, radio shows, fundraising, and even

has his own line of fan gear. Aside from the above, he is also working with some

American music producers, and his EP will be dropping within the next few weeks.
