Ghanaian born musician Captain Planet, known in real life as Jeff Silvanus Dodji Dovo Negro, from the trio group 4×4 has made it known to his loyal fans how he gets revenue to finance his own music projects.
Speaking in an interview with Amansan Krakye, the “Obi Agyi Obi Girl” hitmaker who is currently enjoying massive airplay with his new song Money said, musicians need to do more investment aside music.
“As a young musician, if you even get 1 GH Cedi, you need to invest. I have different avenues like shops, companies and other investments packages I get money from aside music. You can’t rely on music alone”. He said.
According to Captain Planet, members of the group comprising Coded and Fresh Prince are consequently pursuing solo careers in a move to keep the name of the brand relevant, revealing that a number of singles will be heard from each member of the group subsequently.
“They have their own singles. Prince has like eight singles out. Very soon people will be hearing a lot from us. We are doing that all in the name of building up the group and staying relevant and keeping the brand name alive because it takes a long time for the group to release so whiles people are waiting for the group songs to come out they will be hearing solo songs,” he said.
Captain Planet likened the move to that of duo group R2Bees where Mugees and Padae plough solo paths in their career but still stand together.
