In Ghana whenever a member of a group starts flirting with a solo career, more often than not it’s because a split of the group is on the way.
That ‘code’ of solo career has spelled the end of many groups (sometimes other members remain together whilst one goes off), but usually if you’re a huge fan of a group the last thing you want is to see anyone of them start going their own way.
So in recent months, with both Captain Planet and Fresh Prince having dropped solo projects, the question is out over whether 4X4 are still going strong. Showbiz sat down with group frontman Captain Planet to discuss that very issue and according to him, there’s nothing to see there.
“At the beginning of 2016, we made it clear that we were pursuing solo projects and that saw Fresh Prince release his songs. The group isn’t going solo. We are just releasing songs individually because our fans feel we are limited when we work on a piece together.” he told the paper.
“You can’t exploit your talent fully as a member of a group but the opportunity abounds when you are on a solo project. That has been the wish of our fans, to hear something from us individually,”
Nothing to see here folks.
