Not one, but two Japanese singers will be performing in Singapore next month on the same date but at different venues!

R&B singer Kumi Koda and anime singer LiSA are both coming to Singapore on 18 July 2015 for their first solo concert in the country!

To celebrate her 15th anniversary as an artiste, Kumi Koda, 32, who is often touted as the Christina Aguilera of Japan will be promoting 12th album in her “Koda Kumi 15th Anniversary Live Tour 2015 ~WALK OF MY LIFE~ supported by Mercedes-Benz” all around Asia.


Koda has always been known for her sexy image, she is the one who starts the ‘ero kawaii’ (literally translated as ‘erotic cute’) trend in Japan and was partially responsible for making the wearing of lingerie in public more acceptable in the country.
