Biography

Kenta Kamiya was born on May 27, 1995, in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan.

Kamiya entered the entertainment industry early in his life by being a child actor. He starred in the films Ryukyu Cowboy Yoroshiku Gozaimasu (2007)[1] and Nirai no Oka〜A Song of Gondola〜 (2010)[2][3].

However, when he was in his 3rd grade of junior high school, he quit his acting career and entered EXPG Okinawa after being impressed by EXILE.

In March 2014, with only 3 years of dancing experience, he participated in the EXILE PERFORMER BATTLE AUDITION (to find a new performer for EXILE) but didn't make it to the finals.[4]

In April 2014, Kamiya was announced as a candidate for EXILE TRIBE's upcoming group THE RAMPAGE, and in September of the same year, he became an official member after completing the group's first musha shugyo.[5]

Before and after THE RAMPAGE's debut, the performers of the group were active as a support dancers for EXILE THE SECOND. During that time, ETS members SHOKICHI and NESMITH, who act as both vocalists and performers, influenced Kamiya to pursue the same career, thus he was originally training to become a vocalist too. During THE RAMPAGE's musha shugyo, he did indeed sing on stage a few times, however his official position in the group is solely being a performer.

During THE RAMPAGE's first tour The Rampage Live Tour 2017-2018 "Go on the Rampage" Kamiya was introduced as a member of the group's first sub-unit alongside 4 other performers. In this sub-unit he takes on the position of a vocalist and rapper, marking the first time he would provide his vocals to any work of THE RAMPAGE. The quintet made their official debut as MA55IVE THE RAMPAGE with the digital song "Determined" on February 6, 2020.[6]
