Afrobeats musician, KiDi says the Covid-19 pandemic is a canker eating away the growth of many in the entertainment industry.
According to him, due to the virus, there are restrictions on concerts and outdoor performances in several jurisdictions.
KiDi spoke to Doreen Avio on Let’s Talk Showbiz about his highs and lows in 2021, saying that no matter how often musicians have been allowed to play at events and be with their fans, Covid-19 still kills a lot of possibilities.
“No matter how we look at it, it still limits us to do a number of things, although outside is quite opened, and we get to perform again, we get to travel, but there are always certain things that are pulling you back, rules from other countries still going on and still a low point,” he said.
The ‘Touch It’ hitmaker yearned for things to return to normal, so he could travel anywhere in the world, attend concerts, and film music videos without limitation.
Despite this setback, KiDi stated that he had a successful year. According to him, he made it to the conclusion of the year in good health.
“I still have life, and I’m still strong and obviously, my works are speaking for themselves. They are doing amazing, taking global dominance, worldwide everyone is dancing to ‘Shut Up and bend over’ and as an artiste, it makes me happy.”
Despite losing the VGMA artiste of the year prize at the Ghana Music Awards, the musician’s popular singles like as “Touch It, Mon Bebe” and others from his Golden Boy album dominated the charts in Ghana and overseas.
Meanwhile, KiDi and Kuami Eugene will perform for the first time on March 6, 2022, at the Indigo O2 venue in the United Kingdom.
