KiDi, a highlife musician who came in second place overall at the 22nd Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, has broken his silence.
Prior to the award announcement, the musician was all smiles as he took it upon himself to inform Ghanaians who were watching on television of the live turnout of events on social media.
KiDi was hoping for a fifth prize, which would have put him at the top of the list of honorees and given him bragging rights for the next year.
When Deputy Tourism Minister Mark Okraku-Mantey delivered the Artiste of the Year award to Diana Hamlton, who was competing against four other artists, KiDi was overcome with sadness and rage.
A charged and inconsolable KiDi marched out of the auditorium as Diana Hamilton and her team jubilated their way to the platform.
Hours after reality dawned on him, he threw in the towel and congratulated his contender via a tweet.
Despite being greeted with a little traffic in the shape of Diana Hamilton, the Highlife performer underlined that he will undoubtedly be back.
The ‘Say Cheese’ hitmaker took home the EP of the Year, Afrobeat/Afropop Artiste of the Year, Afrobeats/Afropop Song of the Year, and Highlife Song of the Year awards.
