After years of speculations, Captain Planet, a member of music trio, 4x4, has come out publicly to confirm that he is in a serious relationship with Uche Ofodile, Chief Marketing Officer of Vodafone Ghana.
Although news about their relationship has been in the media for years, the two have failed to confirm its existence especially when they have not been spotted together publicly.
But a single Anadwo Yede released by 4x4 (also made up CoDed and Fresh Prince) with the lyrics Wetin na ur name Ofodile Oche by Captain Planet seems to give credence to the widely speculated rumour.
Captain Planet, known in real life as Jeff Sylvanus Dodji, told Myjoyonline.com in an interview that it’s about time he sets the records straight and affirms their relationship.
He said: “Yes I am dating Uche. She is beautiful, lovely and caring, and I'm so proud of her.” He added that they have been dating for the past two years.
Asked about the significance of the lyrics in the new song, the leader of 4x4 said it is to clear the air on the relationship.
He noted that he deserves some props for mentioning the love of his life's name in the song.
Captain Planet however quizzed: “How many musicians since the inception of hiplife have been bold enough to mention their girlfriend’s name in a song?”
Jeff Sylvanus Dodji disclosed that their love relationship is not a fiction and that “we are getting married soon. We are in the process.”
According to him, their wedding “will happen here [in Accra] live and coloured.”
Pushed further on how soon Ghanaians should expect the wedding, Captain Planet said a date has not been set yet but “when we settle on the date, I will let you know.”
