KRU Entertainment lost its binding “glue” when one of its three founders, Edry Abdul Halim, migrated to Britain, reported Harian Metro.

KRU Entertainment president and chief executive officer Datuk Norman Abdul Halim said they had initially thought that they could still manage the company using the online platform after Edry migrated two years ago.

“But it is not the same, ” he was quoted as saying.

Edry was instrumental in composing songs, managing artistes and outlining marketing strategies for KRU Entertainment.

The three brothers – Norman, Yusry and Edry – can no longer regard KRU as their private company as they need to rope in outsiders to forge ahead in the field of music, as well as in the production of films and television programmes.

“Edry was instrumental in harvesting new talents and making them stars. He is also a great composer.

“It is our greatest loss when he migrated. But we need to move on and restrategise in the new normal environment, ” said Norman.
