Whatever is going on with Hiplife trio, 4X4, the group’s mentor, Prince Bright of Buk Bak fame who is currently in Ghana has promised to fix it before he goes back to his base in the USA.
Although members of the 4X4, namely Coded, Captain Planet, Fresh Prince have denied rumours they have split up as a group, they each continue to embark on solo projects since the beginning of 2016.
Now Prince Bright says as one of the ‘parents’ who birthed the 4X4 group, he will see to it that whatever problem that is eating at the members of the group is resolved.
In a chat with this reporter when he paid a visit to the offices of Graphic Showbiz on Monday, Prince Bright said “I will sit with the group and talk about what is happening and I believe we can thrash things out.
“You see, individuals in a music group hardly survive when they go their separate ways because their fans have always seen them as members of a group.
“So I am very keen on fixing whatever problem that exists in 4X4 group so they come together again” he said.
According to Prince Bright, he’s received a lot of messages on his Facebook page and other social media handles asking him about what he is doing to save the situation.
“I had a lot of big people in the industry sending me messages asking what I am doing to help the group since I and my late partner Ronnie formed it but my reply to them was I will handle it. I am here now and I will fix it before I leave,” he added.
Prince Bright who is in the country to promote his two singles Small Thing and Pioto Photo said he does not believe in beefing in the music industry.
“I don’t think beefing is necessary because the music fraternity is too big for every musician to eat from. We don’t have to get dirty to make our names out there” he said.
He believes the new crop of musicians, Kuami Eugene, King Promise, KiDi, MzVee and Wendy Shay are doing a fantastic job.
According to him, he is planning some serious collaboration with some of these young ones.
