Celebrated music group VIP broke up in 2013

The founder and former leader of the popular music group, VIP, Musah Haruna popularly known as Friction, says he regrets leaving the group.

In an interview on Adom FM‘s Entertainment Hall, Friction said he had to leave the group because the music business in Ghana was not as lucrative as he thought it would be.

Being a business-minded person, he left Ghana to pursue greener pastures and education in Holland. Friction now owns a music band in Holland.

The VIP group was formed after Friction proposed the idea to four people (Promzy, Lazzy, Prodigal, and Bone) and before they knew it, the five of them were performing at ghetto parties, clubs, street festivals etc.

Friction’s dog, Chicago, was also an official member of the group, and could be heard growling at the end of their tracks from the late 1990s, until it eventually died.

Music group VIP, meaning Vision In Progress released their first album, Bibi Baa O, in 1998, and were famous within Ghana and beyond.

They won many awards, staged many concerts and were billed to perform at almost all the top shows.

Recalling the good old days, Friction said if given a second chance, he would not abandon the group which is now made up of Zeal (formerly Lazzy), Prodigal and Reggie Rockstone.

Meanwhile, after a long hiatus, Friction is currently promoting visuals for his new song dubbed Zongo Na Fito.
