This does not mean that Yovie is exiting the band, as he announced last November on his planned transition. “I’m not [leaving], but my position will change into being the ‘captain’ behind the scenes and the producer of this band,” he posted on his Instagram page.
Yovie & Nuno also posted a message recently on its official Instagram account: “It’s certainly heartbreaking, but we’re not galau [sad] #TerimaKasihMasYovie (thank you Yovie)."
Known for the wildly popular love songs he had written for Kahitna and solo singers since the early 1990s, Yovie founded Yovie & Nuno in 2001 as a new project. The band has released a number of popular hits, dominated primarily by love songs.
The band’s 2010 album, Winning 11, was awarded Best Pop Album at the 2011 Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) Awards and its 2007 album The Special One was named Best of the Best Album at the 2009 AMI Awards. (wir/wng)
