X Factor: Rak-Su Frustrated By Lack Of Release

Rak-Su won The X Factor in 2017 but almost 18 months later it’s time for Simon Cowell to face the music.

The four-piece have hit out at the mogul’s record label Syco, saying their time there had been “frustrating” and “confusing” because they struggled to get their songs released.

Last October a row erupted between Syco and management company Modest that meant the band and fellow winners Little Mix moved to another Sony label, RCA.

Now the group — Ashley Fongho, Jamaal Shurland, Myles Stephenson and Mustafa Rahimtulla — say they are thrilled they can finally put out their music, including new tune Yours Or Mine.

Ashley told The Sun the last year was “frustrating, confusing, mostly because it affected us putting out music.

“When we came off The X Factor there were suddenly a lot of cooks in the kitchen. It has taken us a while to get back to where we were before.”

However, they insist there are no hard feelings between the band and former mentor Simon, who invited them to his house to clear the air.

Ashley added: “Simon said, ‘I had faith in you guys, I just want what is best for you going forward’.”
