X Factor winners Rak-Su need some love — to pen new hits
X FACTOR champions Rak-Su say they need to get busy in the bedroom to make their music careers go pop.
The lads — Ashley Fongho, Jamal Shurland, Myles Stephenson, and Mustafa Rahimtulla — told Guilty Pleasures in a chat after their triumph that they’re all single.
While they’ve ‘not had a chance to capitalise’ on attention from female fans yet, they’ll need to… and fast, says Ashley, 25.
‘A lot of the stuff we write is about girls. If we’re not having interactions, we’ll have less stuff to write about,’ he added. With five songs in the top ten of the iTunes chart after their win, the lads are being tipped to emulate the success of One Direction.
But Jamaal, also 25, was keen to play down talk they’re the next big thing.
‘If we could be half as successful as 1D we’d bite your arm off,’ he added. At a time when celebs fall foul of social media posts made in the past, the guys are putting their hands up for anything stupid they may have said before making it big. ‘We’re not perfect,’ said Ashley.
But if fame brings fortune, they won’t forget their roots. ‘Personally, I’m happy with buying my parents a home. Anything else is a blessing,’ said Mustafa, 26.
While Simon Cowell hopes Rak-Su will make him more millions, he’ll be sad just 5.2million watched Sunday’s show — a record low audience for the final.
