The statement was backed up by Boyz II Men who also disclosed that they took a 2 year hiatus as a group.

“It’s been an amazing journey It’s been 15 years and we just need to step back a bit.

“We are not quitting music or breaking up. There is a lot of misinterpretation of the statement we put out. It’s just a small hiatus. We just feel like we need a very small break.

All the business, the record label will still be running and we just feel that we need to take this small break,”.

Savara further stated that they are looking forward to signing more young talents to their record label – Sol Generation.
