Lead Singer Kumar Bent Leaves Raging Fyah
Even though there are dozens of positive sayings about changes and new beginnings that certainly contain a lot of truth, these news are a big shock.
Lead singer Kumar Bent today announced (via Facebook & Instagram) his decision to leave Raging Fyah:
After some lengthy deliberation and meditation, it is with a heavy heart that I feel compelled to announce my decision to leave the band “Raging Fyah”. I believe all concerned will benefit from a parting of ways at this point and I see this as the inevitable conclusion.
We all have our own Paths to follow in this World, and mine has carried me to where I am today as an Artist/Musician. My history with Raging Fyah has given me immense experience and I am very grateful for this, but please know, all the Love and Support is not forgotten, and I will continue to grow and appreciate what the future may hold.
Please respect my decision and sense of privacy at this delicate time.
One Love, Kumar “Fyah” Bent"
