Jan 13th ♥ 中山優馬 (Nakayama Yuma)
Yuma joined the agency in October, 2006. As a member of Kansai Jrs. he was part of 3 member group TOP Kids, then joined with 4 other Kansai Jr. to make the group Hey! Say! 7 WEST. However, on occasions when Nakayama is not working with this group, the remaining six members carry on with their own activities and are called 7WEST.
In 2009 it was announced that he would release a single “悪魔な恋 -Akuma na Koi-” w/B.I.Shadow as the theme of Yuma’s 3rd dorama. In March 2010, he debuted as a member of NYC (Nakayama Yuma, Yamada Ryosuke, Chinen Yuuri) releasing the single “勇気100% -Yuuki 100%-”, a cover of senpai 光GENJI’s popular single. Which gave them the opportunity to perform in 紅白歌合戦 -Kouhaku Uta Gassen- more than once.
Yuma’s solo song “がらすの・魔法・-Glass no Mahou-“ that was sung in Playzone 2011, was released together with NYC’s new single on January 4, 2012.
Happy 18th Birthday! お誕生日おめでとう！
