LOOK: It’s Terrance Trent D’arby


For those of us who have been in the industry for the past 20 years we remember this was one of the most unfortunate situations. Trent Darby was an extremely promising artist on Columbia records who will go down in history for letting his massive ego destroy his own career.

Remember that 2nd album where Terrance DEMANDED it not have breaks on it and PDs were having a hard time playing it? We were told to just turn it down when it reached the end of the song? What? In addition, there were no hits on that 2nd album. I’m sure he’s over it now and he is living in and just became a father again. His name is now Sanata Maitreya. He still sounds pretty good too. Check out his site here.

CEO of RF Focus, Radio and Music Industry Veteran. Radio DJ, Programmer, Musician and Voice Talent. Graduated from Performing Arts in Buffalo, N.Y. and worked at the legendary KKBT (92.3 The Beat) during its nationwide heyday in the early 90s. Also worked for Stevie Wonder at KJLH.


  1. SANANDA MAITREYA is still one of the best artists out there in the new millennium!!!
    He is now recording his 8th studio album THE SPHINX and some songs are already online on his official website!

    well, for the people who stopped following him at the 2nd album yes, you have a lot of GREAT MUSIC to catch up to..

    rock on SANANDA xx

  2. hey, it looks like the author has misspelled both names.. the new and the old.. wow

    as a die-hard fan of this amazing artist I felt the urgency to post the correct spelling..


    awaiting to see a possible correction by Kevin maybe?? 🙂
