Hiplife trio 4X4 have denied rumours that marriage is what is affecting the group’s shine in recent times.
Captain Planet and Coded are both married and this some pundits believe is part of the reason why the group is not as vibrant as they used to be.
The “World Trade Center” hit makers have however denied that assertion including Fresh Prince who is still single “I am not married yet but I don’t think the marriage of my group members have affected us in any way. Their marriage has motivated me to also get married soon”, Fresh Prince stated.
“Marriage has not affected us in any way. How can marriage affect us? In fact marriage has rather made us matured and more responsible. Marriage has rather made us even stronger as a group”, Captain Planet leader of the group told Peacefmonline.com.
Captain Planet who believes the group is matured now, in a separate interview, said on Hitz FM that the group has moved from composing just any song for their fans to writing mature songs. The rapper said the brand 4×4 has grown and now appeals to a certain class of people hence they have to release songs which will meet the expectation of such people.
He continued that they are very mindful of their lyrics when composing songs because they think about the negative effect it will have on their brand.
“As you grow, there are certain things you cannot say anymore so it keeps you in a different position of composition. You can’t be composing the same songs as you used to do at your youthful stage. I can’t say some of the things I used to say anymore because the more you grow, the more people respect you and the more kids look up to you. When you see the kids or some of the new acts saying some things and people feel like they are hot, I did that when I came into the game in 2003. As you keep growing, your composition needs to change. You are appealing to a different class of people so you need to change. We do mature songs. Listen to most of our recent songs and you will know that most of them are matured” Captain Planet.
Coded married Hospitality Executive, Maame Afua Agyeiwaa Opare in 2012 and Captain Planet married former Chief Marketing Officer of Vodafone Ghana Uche Ofodile in June 2014.
The group made up of Captain Planet (Sylvanus Dodji Jeoffrey), Coded, formerly Abortion (Raphael Edem Avornyo) and Fresh Prince (Prince Tamakloe), have just released both the audio and visual for their new single title “Atongo” which features Prince Bright of Buk Bak.
