The Bembe Squad, which started the hugely popular Bembe Thursdays at Weekenz, Constant Spring Road, has split.Bembe Thursdays enjoyed a successful first year after it was launched in early 2007, but has seen waning support over the last several months.
“It’s been a while now since the squad is breaking up. Only that people never hear about it, because it was not publicised,” a source, who wished not to be named.
Richie Feelings added that all the members are seeing eye to eye. “Everybody still good. And everybody benefits from Bembe, but everyone is trying their own individual thing,” he said.
He added that due to the poor economic condition, things have slowed down significantly and that competing parties are luring away some of their patrons.
“There is a recession now and people always take on to new attraction. Things running slow now. If a man decide to leave the group, it’s his own decision,” he added.
