Remember, this is a Tokyo only event!
We are so proud to finally have Anjelah Johnson in Japan. Anjelah became an internet sensation with her viral video, “Nail Salon” which led to many stand up, television and film opportunities. Next, she joined the cast of “MADtv” as a series regular. This spawned another internet sensation, “Bon Qui Qui.” As a result, this original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, has been viewed by over 100 million people worldwide.
After recording and releasing 3 songs and 2 music videos as Bon Qui Qui, Anjelah signed a record deal with Warner Bros. Records. She released a full album titled “Gold Plated Dreams”, which she has toured twice selling out both times. Subsequently, Bon Qui Qui teamed up with Benefit Cosmetics for her third music video “This Is How We Do It”. Early in 2016 she released her newest video off the album, “Shut Us Down”. Recently, she released a Christmas single entitled “Deck The Hoes”. All the songs are available on iTunes and the videos are currently on YouTube.
