Bollie is famous for his ‘you may kiss the bride’ song off a compilation project by Hammer. Zippy on the other hand had his biggest hit when he released the song ‘virgin’ but Ghanaians never considered their existence after their dead days until they recently surfaced on popular UK relaity show the X Factor.
Now they are the talk of town, from Accra to Takoradi and back, almost everybody has rememberd them; The Menn On Point, Reggie ‘N’ Bollie. It amazes me how entertainment pundits who never helped them are all willing to help now. It’s Sad but the true nature of the Ghanaian showbiz industry kils talents more than it pushes talents, only a hand full of the acclaimed guru can really do the job without being selfish, the rest create a fictious hype which blinds the dumb artiste making them believe they are good locally. From one type of hate to ther other, the media will do their best to kill you before your time, but at the end of the day, if you are not able to handle the fake hype, the fake hype handles you.
Take a seat and watch Bollie and Zippy recur, that’s a new energy I’m experiencing and there’s no better name for them than “Menn on Point”.
Reggie ‘N’ Bollie qualified to the final 12 of the competition some two weeks ago and stand the chance of winning a recording contract and cash prize which I think they deserve. They are heads away when it comes to viewership on X Factor’s youtube channel.
Rapper Sarkodie along with Black Avenue boss, D-Black have thrown their best wishes behind the Ghanaian musicians who are doing extremely well. Reggie Zippy and Bollie known in the X factor UK music reality show as Reggie N Bollie.
