AKISAI initially composed the theme song for the musical "This is Love" and submitted it to a songwriting contest.
AKISAI read the feedback from the judges and realized The judges did not understand the situation of a male duo singing about love to each other.
That was the impetus for making the video. There was no way she could afford to hire a musical actor, so she took on the challenge of playing both roles herself.
AKISAI graduated from an acting school, in case you were wondering.
AKISAI continues to challenge herself in the musical "This is Love".
