In recent announcements, C-ute’s main vocalist, Okai Chisato, will be on a temporary leave from the group.
Chisato made this announcement during their spring concert tour. The reason for this hiatus is due to Chisato’s recent diagnosis of vocal nodules. She will be undergoing surgery after her birthday event and will need to recover for some time. Until then, C-ute will continue their activities with four members.
Takahashi Ai also had vocal nodules, which she removed. She has recovered quite well since then, so I am not too worried about Chisato. I wish her a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!
