AKB48 Team 4 member Okada Ayaka recently announced her graduation from the group.
The announcement was done at the group’s recent performance at AKB48 Theater. No set graduation date has been announced for her.
She joined the group back in 2011 as a Kenkyuusei and was later promoted to Team 4 in 2013.
AKB48 graduations are back in full force and sadly this means that talented members have unfortunately decided to take a separate path. No reason was given for why she decided to leave, but her being 18 means that she probably has alternate plans in life.
We wish Okada Ayaka the best!
