Tiktok star Yukii Takahashi considers her flourishing showbiz career now as a part of her destiny. Having started only on Tiktok in March 2020, she did not expect her following to boom to the 8.2 million fans it is today. One thing led to another and next thing she knew, she was signed up as one of the contract artists of Cornerstone Entertainment.
The half-Japanese Yukii was introduced last weekend as one of the social media hosts of the talent reality show Top Class, together with Albie Casino. She's also at work now on two movies and came up with a single titled "Bounce" in 2021.
More projects are in store for the 19-year-old Yukii. On a sentimental note, she revealed that she strived hard to be in showbiz to earn a living after she was ghosted by her Japanese father.
"The last time I saw my father was when I was 12 years old. I don't have any contact with him for more than six years. It hurts because there are no answers, just questions on why he just stopped seeing us. I took that as a big learning experience for me to become more financially independent," Yukii narrated.
"Am still praying for my father and his safety. I will do my duty to look for him and when the time comes that there's a chance to meet, why not? I will erase the hatred in my heart and just replace it with love," she added.
After starting out as one of the Singtokers in Sing Galing, Yukii's being groomed these days as a host and that's why Top Class landed on her lap. She said she's very happy and proud to be part of the P-pop reality competition, which premieres on Kumu and TV5 on June 18.
" I saw that all the trainees were really good. When you're part of a high-quality show, there's no choice but to level up,"she noted.
Yukii pointed out that she really wants to be an actress, but added that she appreciates being a TV host as it is part of her learning process.
"Am a self-taught host. My best teacher is my experience. I appreciate all the positive and negative feedback. I like constructive criticism because I can't grow without them. I correct what I can for my personal development," she stated.
