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“we were cool and had made plans for a new project we were about to get underway only for me to hear that I had been replaced by Reggie” he noted.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.’
The VVIP member added ‘ we had a meeting with Promzy and Bulldog who was our manager at the time was there—and it was during this meeting that he told us that he was finally leaving. Reggie Rockstone was no where in the conversation and he was not even in contemplation.’
Zeal told GhanaCelebrities.Com that, after Promzy left, they even went to Nigeria to shoot a music video with Terry G alone without him—and it was 3 months after this video that the whole Reggie talk came in.
