Former member of VIP, Promzy has published a fiery message on his Facebook account that has resurrected the unending debate about whether indeed Reggie Rockstone is the originator of Hiplife.
In the same vein, his post reinforced the salty beef he has with Reggie for his sheneganins in getting him kicked out of the evergreen music trio after which he was recruited to replace him by the other members, Lazzy and Prodigal.
He shared a photo of the founding members of VIP which comprises himself, Lazzy, Bone, Friction, and Prodigal. Friction and Bone abandoned the ship earlier in their career leaving a three-member rap group that rose to become one of the formidable music groups n the annals of Ghana music.
Reggie joined the group in 2013 after the exit of Promzy, prompting a change of their name to VVIP.
In a Facebook post, Promzy said; “This guys here were the original originators of hiplife before whoever or whomever came from no where claiming that title in a form of greed and selfishness. We ruled and controlled the streets.
VIP was more like a religion. We were the stage movers and the crowd shakers all over Africa and the world. We been famous before social media. Our time, everything was organic, no easy way out, no handouts, everything was hard work.
This new indomie generation need to go read and do more research on the real pace setters. (VIP vision in progress not some Fuck up vvip bullshit loaded with some opportunists). This was taken in 1998 even though the movement started in 1995, How old were you by then? Know the difference…LEGENDS”.
