Captain Planet, the Leader of multiple award-winning music group 4×4, has revealed that the group was initially supposed to be made up of Castro and him.
The 4×4 is a Hip-hop/Hiplife musical group which was formed in 2000 by Captain Planet and Abortion (now known as Coded) with the help of Prince Bright and the late Ronnie Coaches of Buk Bak. A new artist named Fresh Prince in 2007 later joined the group.
However, speaking in an interview , on Saturday 27th June 2020,with Oheneba Marshall on Up Close on Max TV, Captain Planet, who was explaining and detailing how the 4×4 group was formed, surprisingly revealed that Castro was initially supposed to be his better half in the 4×4 group.
Captain Planet, whose real name is Sylvanus Dodji Jeoffrey, said “the main group was supposed to be me and Castro. JQ wanted to record the two of us together then Bright brought in Coded.”
“So it was Bright’s idea that Coded and I should form the group. So JQ started recording Castro as a solo artist,” He added.
Described as the ’50 Cent of Ghana’, Castro went missing on July 7, 2014 after he allegedly tried rescuing his drowning girlfriend Janet Bandu at Ada.
Captain Planet is currently out with a new hit song ‘Kpoli Kpoli’ which is produced by Genius Selection.
