Samba queen, Stella Monye, has disbanded, P.M. Entertainment can reveal authoritatively.
Monyeâ€™s decision to lay off her band members was borne out of their non challantÂ towards the progress of the band which was demonstrated at a show held by herÂ recently.
To this end, Stella, who is popularly called Her Excellency by her fans, said sheÂ has formed a new band named Azanian Cabarrette.
She said further that the new band consists of 10 able bodied men who willÂ complement her dancers.
An apostle of live band, Monye said the issue of live band is a must in the musicÂ industry.
She stressed that she cannot imagine herself or any artiste of her calibre miming toÂ CDs, noting that the death of live band music will spell doom for the musicÂ industry.
Apart from the new band, Monye, who is also the CEO, Samba Wears, a clothing line,Â said it will be more colourful because of their new costume, courtesy of SambaÂ Wears.
