The Haitian music world was surprised last night with the news that Gazzman “Couleur” Pier has quit Nu Look. Gazzman says that while he is “happy for the first time in his life,” other factors were driving him crazy. He said that the grueling touring schedule and his clashes with Arly Lariviere have taken a toll on him, mentally and physically.
He wrote in a statement, “I lost more than anyone will ever know, and the fans don’t know what I’ve been through for the past four years.” “It’s official, I am no longer a member of Nu Look”, Gazzman said.
Gazzman said that after several years as the lead singer of Nu Look and significant sweat investments, the tensions with Arly made it impossible for him to continue being part of the band.
Gazzman has been complaining about his business partner Arly Lariviere’s dictatorial attitudes for years, where the band leader has no vision beyond the Haitian community, and where he wants to manage Nu Look as a one man show, according to close sources to the singer.
The singer wanted the band to collaborate on his solo project, but Arly dismissed the offer.
Showbiz has learned that the singer has already gathered musicians to form his own band.
