Nakajima Kento is a Japanese actor, singer, and entertainer born in Tokyo. He's a former member of the idol group Sexy Zone and is signed to Johnny's.

When he was in elementary school, he became interested in Johnny's after listening to Shuji to Akira's "Seishun Amigo" for the first time. He auditioned for Johnny's in April 2008 in his third year of junior high. In October of that same year, he debuted as an actor through the series "Scrap Teacher". He started activities as part of B.I.Shadow, a unit formed by the Johnny's Jrs that appeared in the TV series together. In 2011, he debuted as a member of Sexy Zone.

In April of 2013, he starred in his first drama with "BAD BOYS J". He would star in his first movie with the drama's film continuation. In August 2015, he gave his first solo concert. On February 27, 2016, "Kurosaki-kun no Iinai ni Nante Naranai", which he starred in, was released. Despite its medium release scale, it proved to be a hit with over 1 million spectators and hit the first-place ranking during the first week of its release.

He is set to graduate from Sexy Zone on March 31, 2024, but will continue his career as a solo artist under the same management.
