Yamashita tomohisa along with Ryo Nishikido are offically leaving the J boy group “NEWS”.  The band was formed by Johnny Kitagawa in 2003, orginally with 9 members, over time the band became a 6 member sensation with Leader Yamashita Tomohisa well known by his fans as Yamapi.


Over the years the band members have engaged in their own activities,  Ryo being the lead in a popular band    “Kanjani Eight”, Tegoshi and Yuya formed “Tegomass”, Keiichiro now he can be seen weekly as a newscaster on NTV, and Shigeaki has starred in many dramas along with a  solo PV.

I guess from now on we can only wish all the guys our best. I pray that they are reunited soon.
