It doesn’t seem like the controversy surrounding the transformation of VIP to VVIP will end anytime soon— despite the fact that legendary Ghanaian musician-Reggie Rockstone who has now joined the long standing Ghanaian musical group has on many occasions detached himself from the reasons why Promzy left the group.
After Promzy who was part of the formation of the group exited, paving way for discussions which obviously led to Reggie Rockstone’s entry, we’ve heard several allegations of foul play—and according to a new report, Reggie Rockstone teamed up with Joseph Nana Ofori (Prodigal) and Abdul Hamid Ibrahim (Lazy now Zeal) to KICK Promzy out so the former could make his grand entry.
The Clock Newspaper wrote that;
“According to Promzy, everything was well with him and his “brothers” until Reggie Rockstone came into the picture, “we were cool and had made plans for a new project we were about to get underway only for me to hear that I had been replaced by Reggie” he noted.
Promzy, who could not hold back his tears during the entire period of the interview challenged his former group members to produce his resignation letter if they claim he resigned or left the group on his own, “where is the resignation letter, ask Reggie to produce the resignation letter that paved way for him to join the group” he said while shedding tears, insisting that the God father of hiplife was the one behind his fallout from the legendary hip hife group, VIP.”
GhanaCelebrities.Com spoke to Zeal (formerly known as Lazy) in relation to the above publication—and he said, ‘there is no truth in it.’
Zeal said; ‘Promzy had on many occasions come to us, wanting to leave the group and embark on a solo career. And we had on many occasional talked him into seeing the positive side in staying together as group. However, before he even came to us this last time, he had already started his own solo career with a recording.’ (more…)
Despite the ‘unfortunate’ breakaway of Promzy from the long standing Hiplife group-VIP, the group has come out to say, its mission “Vision In Progress” is still in motion…
The trio now turned duo speaking to PeaceFm after their performance at fifth edition of the MTN 4Syte TV Music Video Awards over the weekend said; “This group was established for a purpose and each one of us has a responsibility for us to be able to achieve it. Right from the start we knew it was not going to be easy so no matter what happens the vision is still in progress”,.
Zeal (Abdul Hamidu Ibrahim) and Prodigal (Joseph Nana Ofori) who were extremely excited and satisfied with their first major performance stated that;
“We had a great show tonight and loved the crowd and our fans should watch out this Christmas because we have a lot of things lined up”. They performed their new single “Yeko Di-Sco” for the first time at the show and they were overwhelmed with how the crowd responded to a song they heard for the first time, adding “this will be the official Christmas song”.
Below is a picture of Promzy, a member of the VIP trio. The picture confirms that, he’s a tattoo freak.
Though he avoids talking about his tattoos, it is believed that one on his left arm was for his family. The right is for the streets. His body is for the entire Ghana.
Which of the tattoos is for Ghana girls? The tattoo freaks will be praising him whiles others will castigate him. (more…)
