ONE OF Ghana’s prolific songwriters and vocally extravagant artistes, Captain Planet of 4X4 fame, is back with another firework dubbed ‘Kpoli Kpoli hhnhhhhhh’
Captain Planet, who has been the leader of the famous music group 4X4, says his newly-released song was inspired by a movie he watched in a plane.
According to him, he likes to do conceptual music, saying “I like telling stories in my music that people can relate to. If you check my archives of songs, (you will see it in) ‘Kooko Aduro’, ‘Obi Agyi Obi Girl’ Monkey Dey Work Baboon Dey Chop’, ‘Your Mother Saw Me’, ‘Akpeteshie’ and many others. I was just telling a story just like I did in my new one ‘Kpoli Kpoli.’
“I got the inspiration from a movie I was watching on the plane. It was about some two high school students who had sentiments towards one another. However, they couldn’t date. After school the two of them got hitched to various individuals. So there was some old reunion party and they met again after years passed by, and they began discussing old school days and how they used to like one another. Furthermore, the man asked the woman for what valid reason she didn’t allow him to cherish her and the woman answered that she was frightened the man was going to tell his companions and the man said, ‘you know me well, indeed, and should have realized that I wasn’t going to tell anyone and I would have stayed quiet about it’ ”
‘Kpoli Kpoli’ is a groovy mid-tempo piece that talks about cheating in a relationship.
