Former member of the defunct 4×4 music trio, Russel Edem Avornyo, affectionately known as Coded 4X4 has revealed why the group went their separate ways in a fresh interview.
The rapper and ragga specialist said the bar Shatta Wale set at a point in time back in the days caused panic in their camp.
He stated that Wale was releasing back to back hit songs and was getting all the attention. Coded further added that to keep up with the competition the SM boss subtly offered, they decided to split so they can produce individual projects.
He said the idea was for them to release hit songs individually but still sustain the core relevance of the group and reunite later.
“That was the era that a lot of singles were coming from Shatta Wale. That was the season he was releasing countless records. Shatta Wale will release a song today and in a maximum of two weeks, he is out with another song”, he said on Class TV (CTV).
