Emmanuel Ababio (Promzy) has left music group, Vision In Progress (VIP), after almost two decades of doing music with them.
The group, also made up of Joseph Nana Ofori (Prodigal), and Abdul Hamid Ibrahim (Lazzy now Zeal), went commercial in 1998 and over the years has been one of, if not, Ghana’s best music groups.
VIP was founded by Friction (Musah Haruna) and an unnamed friend who later left the group for the U.S. to finish his education. Friction later assembled four young talented musicians, Promzy, Lazzy, Prodigal, Bone to form the group. Bone left shortly after that.
Friction, after VIP released their second album, left the group explaining he felt it was time for him to embark on a solo career.
The remaining members of the group, Promzy, Zeal, Prodigal, thrilled Ghanaians with several hit songs and scooping several awards but Promzy suddenly exited the group to the shock and dismay of Ghanaians.
Manager of VIP, Bull Dog confirmed to Hitz Entertainment News that Promzy has left the group.
According to him, “Promzy exited the group based on personal reasons and as a group, VIP has a calling to its fan-base and VIP is bigger than one member of the group.”
VIP, Bull Dog noted, “have come very far and they will not in any way disappoint [their fans].”
He was confident that, “VIP is here to stay and they are making sure they will never disappoint Ghana and Africa?”
Promzy’s exit is coming after the emergence of the artwork of the group’s latest single, ‘Kokoko’, which does not include Promzy’s image but rather Nigerian musician Terry G.
