Steven Hiroyuki Aoki is one of the most hard-working musicians out there, but he still has time to visit his mom and wish Mama Aoki a Happy Mother’s Day.
Aoki couldn’t be with his mom, Chizuru Kobayashi, on the actual day of mothers, so he got pumped up before his performance in Tokyo by asking 40,000 fans on Sunday to shout Happy Mother’s Day to her on video.
The massive crowd also sang a recent song he collaborated on with Vini Vici, featuring Mama Aoki called “Moshi Moshi,” which Billboard dubbed “a wild ride, and one helluva family affair.”
Aoki did manage to stop by his mom’s place on Wednesday to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day in person in the most adorable way.
He even got her a brand new car! We want to adopt you, Steve.
Aoki has always had a tight relationship with his mom, who raised him in the suburbs of Newport Beach, California.
It’s matcha time with Mama Aoki:
