Eason Chan to quit singing
Eason Chan, who has debuted for 19 years, recently announced that he will leave the industry two years later. The Hong Kong Mandopop legend said he “does not want to work anymore” and shocked fans with this piece of unexpected news.
The 39-year-old, who has been weighed down by work in recent years, decided to make the announcement through a radio programme. Asking listeners to be his “witnesses”, Eason hopes he will not waver in future because of monetary benefits.
With the music industry in a slump and “fans preferring to download songs instead of buying the actual albums,” he revealed one of his albums released last year sold less than 1,000 copies.
The singer, who released his ‘Rise & Shine’ album this year, is still contracted to company Cinepoly Records. He is scheduled to release two more albums and sees himself gradually leaving the industry two years from now.
Rumour has it that Eason have been slogging his guts out to give his wife a good life – going on performance tours every Friday and the weekends, and attending filming and promotional activities for the rest of the week.
