Hiplife artiste, Captain Planet talks about being in a musical group. Moreover, according to him, being in a group limits one’s creative abilities.
“Being in a group limits your creativity in a lot of ways; it is like being in a family, it is not all about you. Whatever decision you take you need to consider the others.
“You cannot spend all your time on a song. It has to be shared because everyone has to prove his or her ability. You cannot do a lot of the things you want to do because of this.
“I may want to do a rap on some portions on a song but you can’t because the other members may think it will not help. You may want to put some guitar strings somewhere but the group says no etc and you have to deal with it.
“But when you are alone, you can do all the things that you like because after all you do not need anyone’s opinion. You can bring on board all the creative ideas you have in your box and do all the acrobatics on the song, it is all yours“

However, Captain Planet admitted that being in a group also empowers you.
“There are good sides too; you learn from each other, exchange ideas and all but the truth still remains that the way you do things as an individual is not the same with a group because it is not all about you anymore”
Furthermore, he spoke about his own group. He hinted that fans of 4X4 should keep their fingers crossed for something great.
“Prince is currently in school in the States, Coded has found a new love that he is concentrating on and I have other businesses I need to focus on so we are all occupied at the moment but we are working on something that will blow the minds of Ghanaians. They should keep up the love for me as a solo act and my group 4×4.”
