Official Statement: MNL48’s Sayaka officially leaves the idol group
Hallohallo Entertainment Inc. (HHE) would like to formally announce Sayaka’s departure from MNL48. With a heavy heart, Sayaka and her family have decided to officially leave the idol group to relocate in Japan and pursue other personal endeavors.
In her statement to fans, Sayaka wishes her fans to stay positive and to keep supporting MNL48 despite her exit. “Mnloveski, sana wag kayong malungkot kahit wala na ako, hindi naman sa wala, part pa rin ako ng MNL48 pero ga-graduate na ako. Pero pwede pa rin naman nila ako makita and maging happy pill pa rin nila. Sana maging happy pa rin kayo, nandiyan naman yung mga ibang sisters ko.
Sa mga co-members ko, sisters ko, gusto ko galingan niyo pa kasi maraming nangangailangan ng happiness so gusto ko ibigay niyo yung best niyo everytime na magpeperform kayo, gusto ko ibigay niyo yung puso niyo para saknila para sulit lagi yung effort nila.”
HHE is grateful for the dedication and commitment she shared into the idol group’s growth and success. We sincerely wish her all the best in her life and future plans.
Taking this opportunity, HHE and MNL48 members would like to thank the fans for their understanding, respect and continued support. With this, we will be moving forward with high hopes for the group’s bright future.
