As former Morning Musume Risa Niigaki “accidentally” posted photos of her and Riho Sayashi on her blog and Instagram the rumours of Rihoriho’s comeback started to spread among Hello! Project wotasphere. Quickly those posts were deleted but many people managed to see them and screencaptures & Risa+Riho photos were soon reposted on social media.
You might remember Rihoriho graduated from Morning Musume on December 31. 2015. After that she graduated also from high school and went to New York. She wanted to improve her English and also learn more about dance & choreography. In 2017 Rihoriho studied dance at Broadway Dance Center, New York City. From that period of time we have some blurry video footages where she dances with other BDC students.
As for those rumours / speculations many believe that we see Rihoriho as a surprise guest in Morning Musume. ’18’s spring tour final concert(s) at Nippon Budokan on June 19. and/or 20. (Morning Musume Tanjou 20 Shuunen Kinen Concert Tour 2018 Haru ~We are MORNING MUSUME~).
That indeed could happen. For sure sooner or later Up-Front announces their new dance instructor & choreographer and the name of that person is gonna be Riho Sayashi.
EntameAlive is one of those sites which has posted speculations on Rihoriho’s future role in Hello! Project.
And while we are waiting for Rihoriho’s official comeback here is some eyecandy from the time when she was still in Morning Musume.
