FACEBOOK.COM/AMINA.DUJEAN (MAINLY ENG)
TWITTER.COM/AMINADUJEAN (MAINLY JAPANESE)
Hello everyone! I’m amina du Jean and I’m Japan’s first non-half Black idol. I’ve recently joined idol group CHICK GIRLS which takes inspiration from Ariana Grande, AKB48 and Girl’s Generation. I’m from Detroit and took a keen to girls’ groups like The Supremes, Destiny Child and Spice Girls as a kid. Considering Western girl group culture has dwindled down, it only made sense for me to get completely immersed in East Asian girl group culture, particularly Japan’s idol scene. Thanks to a Tumblr post last year with 1,000+ REBLOGS I won an runner up award in Kodansha’s MISS ID. The contest started with 4,000+ applicants however I was one out of 13 to win an award. I am the only Non-Japanese and Non-Asian to have gotten this. My goal is to broaden the standards of beauty not only in ASIA but in the WORLD.
Here’s a video explaining my backstory and my life before moving to TOKYO:
This group has 11 members currently, and at the end of the year 7 of us with the most fan votes get picked by the producers to make a 5-member major DEBUT! Which means a major record company(SONY, AVEX, KING etc…) will fund our first CD and music videos.
Being outside of Japan voting is an uphill valley for my supporters however heres a very very easy visual guide(IF YOU ARE DOING FREE VOTES, I DONT THINK YOU HAVE TO INPUT PAYMENT INFORMATION).
