A former Netherhall Secondary School student is returning to the Ugly Duckling Chinese Restaurant in Cambridge where she grew up on 8 September to present her parents with a gold disk from her record company celebrating the 100 millionth mobile phone download of her music in China.
Ayi Jihu, who is originally from Leibo, Sichuan in rural South West China, came to the UK when she was 11 years old and after discovering a talent for singing she decided to return to the land of her birth to launch a pop career based on the music she had heard growing up in Cambridge.
From her humble beginnings helping out her parents in their Chinese restaurant in Cambridge where she would sing to customers, Ayi Jihu has become one of China’s biggest new stars, routinely topping lists of sexiest Chinese women and her music has become phenomenally popular in the lucrative mobile phone download market with young people in China.
Taking time out of her busy schedule of endorsement deals, performances and appearances throughout China, Ayi Jihu is planning a whistle-stop visit to see her parents before jetting back to China for other commitments. She has decided to give her parents a gold disk from her record label celebrating her recent achievements to thank them for supporting her in her dream of making it big in the oriental pop scene. Fresh from her success in China, Ayi Jihu’s debut UK single ‘Sad Sweet Dreamer’ which is out on September 27 looks set see her profile rise in the UK and from China to Cambridge and back again, Ayi Jihu’s music career in both China and in Europe is now full of Eastern promise.
