I Almost Gave Up On Music – KiDi

Published

on

Things may be going very well for musician, KiDi, now; he has got chart topping songs, the latest of which is Thunder, and he has had the opportunity to perform on some big stages.

And that is why it may be surprising to many when they find out that he almost gave up on music.

In an interview with Showbiz, KiDi says he almost gave up because things were not going well after he won MTN Hitmaker.

After he won Hitmaker Season 4 in 2015, he released some singles but they didn’t fly and that discouraged him.

“I almost gave up on music, before the Odo and the others, I almost gave up, because things were not going as planned.

I remember in December 2016, I went to church on New Year’s Eve and prayed and asked God to turn things around if this is what I was born for and that has been it since,” he said.

It’s good things turned around because now the only way for him to go is up and he is willing to put in the work for that to happen.

Born Dennis Nana Kwaku Boadi Dwamena, KiDi is an old student of Accra Academy and completed the University of Ghana, Legon.

He looks up to people like Justin Timberlake, Kojo Antwi, Chris Brown, Bruno Mars and Usher.

When the 25-year-old is not busy in the studio or performing at shows, he spends his time watching movies.

He used to love painting as well but says doesn’t do much of that these days.

Published

on

Winner of MTN Hitmaker Season 7 and new BHIM Nation signee, Okailey Verse, has said that her mentor, Stonebwoy is every honest, upfront and a very simple guy.

“It’s fun working with this man [Stonebwoy]… he is down to earth, I have never met anybody like him before, he will let you know this is what you should do and this is what you should not do, he will tell you the truth, he will be honest with you, he is raw like that, he is very plain,” she said in an interview on Accra-based Hitz FM.

OV noted that Stonebwoy has a lot of wisdom and knowledge when it comes to music and that she’ll be ready to be lectured by him.

And if in anyway Stonebwoy scolds her, she’ll not take it to heart because she knows he simply want her good.

“He is a big person, he is very knowledgeable and so if he tells me stuffs like that, I will really need to learn hard. I remember I was doing a particular song with him, it wasn’t ‘Want Me’ but a particular song and I remember my verse, I got a few melodies I had to fix certain lyrics in it and he was like, ‘what you said here, does it make sense …?”

The reigning “ruler of the mic” added that she believes she is good enough hence the opportunity to work with Stonebwoy’s record label, Burnington Music Group (BMG) and that if Stonebwoy should scold her, that means she has to work extra hard.

“If he tells me that I’m not good enough, it means I have to work hard because if I’m with him, I don’t think he will pick somebody who is not good enough…if he tells me that, it means I need to work hard. (or I might be sleeping),” she said.

on

Ghanaian Dancehall icon, Stonebwoy born Livingstone Etse Satekla has said that he’ll look like a hypocrite if he attends the funeral of late Willi Roi.

When Willi Roi was alive, the duo never agreed. Willi is someone who always paint Stonebwoy black.

Willi has called the BHIM Nation CEO names; some are that he’s rude, a dull-witted person who can never be smart among other unprintable names.

Well, after his death, some BHIM nation fans were happy to some extent.

As it stands, Stonebwoy in an interview with Zionfelixwas asked about how he felt when he heard about the news of Willi Roi’s death.

He answered that he didn’t first believe when he saw the headlines on one of the popular blogs.

However, it was proved that indeed, he’s dead.

Zionfelix went on to ask Stonebwoy that would he in anyway attend Willi’s funeral?

The Baafira hitmaker responded that he wouldn’t mind going, if he’s around and have the time, he’ll pass through to show love.

However, even so, he’ll look like a hypocrite.

Because even if Willi was alive and threw a party, he believes that he (Stonebwoy), won’t be invited.

So why should he now go to his funeral?
