While the talented rapper wasn’t giving too much away, Dappy – who has successfully crafted his very own solo career, and is touring in 2018 – has very cryptically hinted that while he’s concentrating on his own music for now, the band could reunite in future.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, the No Regrets hitmaker said: “Basically, all I can say on that is that since we stopped making music, we’ve carried on making music. That’s been for quite some time now. So you can imagine how much material that we’re sitting on, if that makes sense.
“So all this music that I’m talking about, is simply not going to go unnoticed. So I need say no more on that situation.”
The Camden trio disbanded in 2012, after a successful run of hits including Playing With Fire, I Need You and Papa Can You Hear Me.
He continued: “We’ve been making music since the minute we’ve stopped making music. And my point is, the music that we’ve been making is not going to go unnoticed. That gives you a pretty good idea of what is going to happen.”
Fazer previously spoke out about the possibility of a reunion, telling OK! Online: “100 per cent, that’s definitely going to come really soonish. Not right now, we’ve all got individual things we’re focusing on at the minute, but obviously it’s all about timing.”

Dappy faced a difficult year in 2017, after he spent time in jail before being handed a nine-month suspended prison sentence following a row outside his home.
And the Good Intentions star added that the darker parts of his life have helped shape him into who he is now – and that writing his solo freestyle music has aided him transition into feeling like himself again.
“Music keeps my feet on the ground,” he added. “A lot of the time, I’ve been through ups and downs. And in my other songs, even when I would write emotional songs, I wouldn’t necessarily be remorseful. I’d be kind of… blaming other people for my mistakes.
“In this music – as you can hear from the three new freestyles that I’ve dropped – you’ll be able to hear that I’ve changed, and what kind of a person I am now. It’s real. No gimmicks. This way, a lot more people can relate. When you’ve got time to put pen to paper, I find it easy to express myself, and I can only really do that through music.”
Dappy now drops freestyle raps on his YouTube channel, something which he says is an ode to his fans who are passionate about the music he creates.
The rapper embarks on a tour in February, with many of the dates already sold out. Dappy plays at Cardiff, Bournemouth, Liverpool, Sheffield, Birmingham, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle and Dublin. For tickets, click here.
