What Happened Between Eiko and Nanami in Ya Boy Kongming?
Eiko and Nanami have become rivals in Ya Boy Kongming, who are both vying for a spot in Japan's Summer Sonia music festival. A place at the music festival is a big deal because it will catapult anyone's music career to new heights.
Eiko first encountered Nanami on the streets when she rescued her from police interrogation. Eiko joined Nanami even though Nanami does not have a permit to perform. Nanami sang while Eiko played guitar during their performance.
Since then, the two have frequently performed in the streets together. They even ate and bathed together, formally establishing their friendship.
However, things take an unexpected turn when Nanami admits to Eiko that she is Azalea's lead vocalist. She also told Eiko about her cruel past, which prompted her to join Karasawa's management team.
Despite this, Eiko is adamant about reaching Nanami through her music. She wants Nanami to sing and perform how she wants, not how Karasawa wants her to.
Does Eiko Get 100,000 Likes in Ya Boy Kongming?
Yes, Eiko did get 100,000 likes on Ya Boy Kongming.
Kongming lays out his strategy for getting Eiko what she needs to win the rivalry on D-Day. Kongming, as part of his plan, staged a fake Azalea live concert, unbeknownst to the original group, in order to dupe the majority of their fans.
Kongming ordered Eiko to perform in front of Azalea fans in Shibuya, Japan. They not only spread the word that Azalea was performing, but they also voted for Eiko right away. As a result, Karasawa, Azalea's manager, held their own live concert in front of Eiko.
While Eiko received 70,000 likes, Azalea came in second with 60,000. Kongming pulled out his trump card after the first performance. While Azalea is preparing for their next song, he instructs Kabetaijin to rap.
Kabetaijin began dissing Azalea and its members. Azalea is not only lip-syncing but their musical instruments are also pre-recorded. After Kabetaijin rapped, Eiko's likes increased to 98,000.
To take advantage of the situation, Kongming orders Eiko to sing and perform her new song, "Dreamer," which she manages to do smoothly thanks to Steve Kiddo, who is watching from his car.
Regardless, Nanami realizes everything that has happened in her life thanks to Eiko's song, which helped her finish first in the 100,000 likes race against Azalea.
She wishes she had done her own thing with her friends. As a result, she quickly returned to her original self, removed her mask, and performed Azalea's new song.
Kongming surprisingly recorded Azalea's performance and uploaded it to the internet at the end of the showdown. He stated that he had returned the borrowed likes that he had used to help Eiko win the head-to-head competition between the two groups.
Unfortunately for Karasawa, the enigmatic manager Kongming and the small club performer Eiko have defeated them and swept the crowd away.
