PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Blazin' Squad rose to the top of the charts with their hit single Crossroads almost 20 years ago but the band have gone in very different directions ever since. The 10 boys that made up the band became an overnight success with an RnB inspired album The Beginning and a further six top 10 singles following their initial breakthrough. During their time together the band celebrated two gold records and sold-out arena tours - including a headline set at Wembley. The 10 members all met through secondary school and came together through a shared love of music - reports Mirror Online. However, after their showbiz careers stalled the Squad wound up on very different paths. We take a look at what the likes of Kenzie, Strider, Freek and Rocky B are up to now. Kenzie - Jamie McKenzie Jamie Mckenzie from Blazin Squad then and now One of the most recognisable members of the group (who could forget that gel-slicked hair) baby-faced Kenzie went on to become a tabloid favourite after the band split thanks to his high profile romances. Kenzie dated Jodie Marsh in 2005 - the same year he also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother. Following his very public but short-lived romance to Marsh, Kenzie has been with his current girlfriend since 2012 with whom he now shares daughters Wynter and Wyllow. Even die-hard fans might have trouble recognising a now 35-year-old Kenzie given he's now a beefed-up personal trainer at Studio 23. Rocky B - Marcel Sommervile Marcel from Blazin Squad then and now Blazin' Squad's popularity had a brief resurgence in 2017 all thanks to Marcel's appearance in Love Island. The rapper hilariously tried to keep his time in the boyband a closely guarded secret, before choosing to disclose the revelation to fellow islanders one by one. Outside the villa, fans were reliving the group's glory days which led to some members of the band doing the nightclub PA rounds over summer. After Marcel's romance with co-star Gabby Allencame crashing down, the star went on to find love with his current girlfriend Rebecca. The pair welcomed their first child - a son they named Roman - at the end of January. Marcel and Rebecca are set to share the details of the pregnancy and the birth in new MTV show Celebrity Bumps: Famous and Pregnant.
