There has been brewing badblood between Promzy and Reggie with Promzy accusing Reggie For Orchestrating his exit from VIP.Reggie joined the group and renamed it VVIP and since then the two haven’t known peace.
In a Facebook post ,Promzy subtly jabbed Reggie and claimed that VIP are solely the originators of the Hiplife genre.”We were originators of the Ghanaian music genre until “whoever” or “whomever” came from nowhere claiming ownership” he said.
The bullet released reached its target man as just days after Reggie Rockstone has also replied his claim in a Facebook post.His response although measured also informs the reader that Promzy was nowhere to be found when he was making his exploits in the Hiplife genre.
