4X4 decided to go solo because of Shatta Wale – Coded
Ghanaian rap artiste Coded has said the singing trio 4X4 decided to go their solo ways due to dancehall artiste Shatta Wale’s constant release of hit songs at the time.
The artiste disclosed this on CTV’s Time With The Stars on Tuesday, 17 May 2022.
According to Coded, the dancehall artiste released hit after hit when he bounced back onto the music scene and that informed the trio’s decision to split.
He told show host Larry Bozzlz: “I think it would basically be the fact that that was the era where a lot of singles were coming from Shatta”.
“He was releasing countless hit records that put every musician on their toes. It was like ‘you are working but you are not working enough, you need to work extra hard to meet up to that level and it was good’; it was a healthy competition. So, we decided that we needed to do our solo projects and add it to our group project…”
‘Time With The Stars’ airs every Tuesday and Thursday at 2 pm on CTV.
