Hiplife music group 4×4’s who has made hits upon hits, back to back turned sour some few years ago. The cause of the split is quite unknown because we never heard any beef amongst the three.
It was just recently that Captain Planet, a rapper amongst the group performed only his part of songs they (4×4) has produced together.
Captain Planet who was the leader of the group, stood his ground and produced hits which one of them is “Obi agye Obi girl” w featured Kofi Kinaata and won best video in the 2018 VGMA’s.
It was very surprising that although the group no longer had a rapport, it wouldnot be any big deal if Captain Planet sang any verse of the song he co-owned with his other 4×4 group members.
4×4 is a Ghanaian hip hop musical group formed in 2000 by Captain Planet (Sylvanus Dodji Jeoffrey) and Coded, formerly Abortion (Raphael Edem Avornyo) with the help of Ronnie Coches and Bright Bling Sparkles (Buk Bak). Captain Planet and Abortion were joined by a new artist named Fresh Prince (Prince Tamakloe).
Jeoffry and Avornyo were discovered by Buk Bak as participants in the Kiddafest TV programme showcasing young musical talent. The name 4×4 reflects the four people who led to the creation of the group (Ronnie, Bright, Abortion, and Captain Planet). The duo released their debut album Siklitele under Buk Bak in 2003. In 2009 4X4 Featured Prince Tamkole(Fresh Prince) in a record call hot girls .com..later that year he was admitted to that group.
4×4 released their second album Contestant No. 1 in 2007, with the single ‘HotGirls.com’ featuring a new artist, Fresh Prince (Prince Tamakloe). The song is reputed to have introduced crunk to Ghanaian culture, and earned the group an Ghana Music Award nomination in 2008. “HotGirls.com” was a success, and Fresh Prince eventually joined the band.
Captain Planet claims to have pioneered Ghanaian vernacular rap, using Akuapem Twi rap, Ga, Ewe, and Pidgin English. Abortion contributes a ragga or dancehall style, which fuses singjaying and deejaying with Captain Planet’s rapping to create an innovative form of hip life. The group was and continues to be mentored by Ronnie Coches and Bright Bling Sparkles (Buk Bak).
