Better Off Solo?:

New Career
Comments & Submitter Name
"Limahl""Considering that the band forcibly removed Limahl from the group, taking bad advice from one of their managers that Limahl was the reason why they couldn't shed that "teenybopper" image, I could sense during VH1 Bands Reunited interview that there were still sour grapes between Limahl and the rest of the band. I'm not kidding either. Limahl seemed to still be upset that the band and their managers wanted to "be rid of him!" But despite the awful way that he was let go from the band Limahl still did really well." - Celeste

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Firing Their Lead Singer"
Shortly after the single Too Shy was released Kajagoogoo had drawn the conclusion that lead singer Limahl was holding them back from being taken seriously as musicians and it was suggested by their then manager to Fire Limahl to get rid of that "teenybopper" image.
