“At 50 years old, it’s time to hang up the BBDs and focus on new endeavors in life,” he said. “My family and I are so thankful to the people of Hawai‘i who have supported my career all these years by coming to my shows, buying my CDs and DVDs, and allowing me to make them laugh. I hope I can count on their support for whatever comes next.”
