Early LifeEdit

Murakami was born on June 6, 1992 in Saitama, Japan to a couple whose names are undisclosed.

2002Edit

On June 30, Murakami Megumi passed the "Hello! Project Kids Audition" along with 14 other girls.[1]

2003Edit

On June 7, She became an elected member of ZYX, a group led by Morning Musume member Yaguchi Mari.

2004Edit

She sang alongside Tanaka Reina and Suzuki Airi in "Suki ni Nacha Ikenai Hito", one of the coupling tracks on the "ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL!" EP, making her one of only seven girls to be chosen from the entirety of Hello! Project to sing on a separate track.

Murakami also appeared on multiple occasions as a backing dancer for other Hello! Project acts. She also appeared on the Goto Maki's PV "Yokohama Shinkirou".

2005Edit

Murakami was featured in the 2005 shuffle group, Sexy Otonajan. She was one of the only two Hello! Project Kids featured in any shuffle group.

Murakami was assigned as a member of Hello! Project group ℃-ute alongside seven other Hello! Project Kids members.[2] These seven members had been passed over when it came to the forming of Berryz Koubou, which had originally been formed to teach the Hello! Project Kids about being in a group by rotating the line-up amongst the kids until the idea was dropped.

2006Edit

During the second half of 2006, amateur photographs of Murakami holding hands with her supposed boyfriend in the street appeared on the internet.

Later on October 31, she retired from ℃-ute and Hello! Project, shortly before ℃-ute made their major label debut.[3] Though the official reason stated was because she wanted to return to an ordinary school life, it is believed that she left because she was afraid of these people following her.

2011Edit

On April 4th, 2011, she returned to show business by signing on to WANTS, a dance agency.

Personal LifeEdit

When Murakami joined Hello! Project Kids, she was a fourth year elementary school student.[1]
