Promzy of VIP
Promzy, one of the popular members of award-winning music group VIP has told NEWS-ONE that contrary to public perception, he does not smoke or take alcohol.
The rapper who recently sustained injuries from a stunt during his group’s video shoot was rather criticized for the incident, as his injury was blamed on an alleged smoking and drinking habit.
However, Promzy has been talking to the issues after the incident, saying he was wrongly judged for the accident that occurred.
According to him, he is not the kind of person people think he is. “I don’t smoke, I don’t drink,” he declared.
“Actually I did jump… I got a deep cut on my arm and my thigh also hurt, but I’m ok now. I was just trying to do something out of the box. I heard people asking, ‘Why, he went to smoke or he went too high?’ No, I don’t smoke, I don’t drink,” Promzy had told NEWS-ONE after a VIP press conference to announce its new artiste on its Boogie Down Nima record label last Wednesday.
He said he decided to jump from a 40ft-roof, because, “I am that type of person who believes in seeing and believing it… I don’t like to fake. I like to be real. I was just trying to do something differently. That was why I jumped,” he explained.
Born Emmanuel Ababio, Promzy is one of the members of VIP, a group which has contributed immensely to Ghana’s music industry.

“As far as I’m concerned Big Brother House has its bad side and its good side. But I see mostly the good side. I see it as a medium of unifying Africa as a continent. You get together and get to learn about our respective countries. Also it creates a lot of exposure … I always call it as a moment of self discovery and I think I really discovered myself in the house. It was a beautiful experience. The unity among us in the house and the respect was unique. Obviously, we are human beings and so we fight and argue but to me Big Brother is good to experience,” she said.
Maria continued: “Big brother has not only helped me on the personal level but also on the business side of life. I have been selected to emcee shows and I have done a lot of appearances back home. Things that I would have not done if I had not gone to Big Brother, you understand. Definitely Big Brother did me good; whether I get the money or not.  I am in Ghana now but I would not have come here if not because of Big Brother.”  
But on the negative side she said, “I have pictures of me with obviously my boobs all over the place. Basically the most negative thing that has happened. But it is ok. I have pretty boobs and I don’t really mind. People can look and admire it. That’s all they can do anyways.”
However, she said she was aware of it before entering the Big Brother House. “I missed the money but I will make that money. I was obviously disappointed when I was evicted. But also I felt I was there for five weeks and I did what I have to do and so I move on. I really feel I did my country and myself proud.”
