ACA Football Partners Pte. Ltd. (Singapore, CEO: Hiroyuki Ono, ACAFP), together with its owner club KMSK Deinze from Belgium, entered into a partnership with Promotion Fund of Vietnamese Football Talent Football Academy (PVF) in Vietnam to work on the youth players development. To follow and deliver stories of those players, we have been working on creating the original documentary series “RISING STAR presented by Phat Dat Corporation” with FujiTV, and this time we are delighted to announce that Ryuji Imaichi from J SOUL BROTHERS from EXILE TRIBE, a Japanese star singer, contributes a song to it.
ACAFP and KMSK Deinze announced a partnership with PVF in July 2022 to collaborate in the development of academy players between Vietnam and Belgium. In September of the same year, KMSK Deinze also announced a partnership with VTVcab, one of the biggest media companies in Vietnam, to broadcast a documentary program “RISING STAR presented by Phat Dat Corporation” in Vietnam, which follows the stories of PVF players who challenge their life to pursue their dreams.
This project has been recognized and chosen to be one of the projects to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam, and now we also reached a collaboration with Ryuji Imaichi to make his new song “Song For Mama” to contribute to the program. It is a new song that will be included in his latest solo album “GOOD OLD FUTURE” which will be released on November 2nd, and the lyrics were written by himself to send the love to mothers in the world. The lyrics match the sentiments of the young football players who are pursuing their dreams and striving to win an opportunity to go to Europe, while also carrying the feelings towards their families and home country.
Comment from Ryuji Imaichi
“I’m delighted to announce that my song will be collaborated with the documentary series “RISING STAR presented by Phat Dat Corporation”. Young generation who try to pursue their dreams while carrying the love of their families and countries on their shoulders are always attractive. I hope that “Song For Mama” will support this wonderful project by expressing the love of children and their parents in the form of music.”
Comment from Hiroyuki Ono, CEO of ACAFP and Vice Chairman, Board of Director, KMSK Deinze
“We are pleased to have Mr. Imaichi, one of Japan’s leading artists, provide the music for this program. This program depicts 15-year-old Vietnamese athletes who are genuinely pursuing their dreams through the selection process. We have seen how each family supports their children to the best of their ability, and the warmth of the parental love in the melody of the song that we have provided this time enhances the story even more. The film will soon be aired in Vietnam, and will be distributed on PlaysiaTV at a later date.”
