There’s no doubt that Kidi has been absolutely sensational in his ‘debut season’ as a musician. Many great musicians and connoisseurs have tipped him to be one of the best musicians in the coming years.
His Odo has been the breakthrough song and elsewhere in Nigeria, he gets massive airplay everywhere. No wonder he was nominated in a category at the 2018 edition of HEADIES because organizers thought he is a Nigerian.
He was nominated in the ‘Rookie of the Year‘ category – designed for young Nigerian acts who performed well during the year under review.
Upon realizing that he’s from Ghana, his name was taken off and put in a different category. His boss, Richie Mensah of Lynx Entertainment made the revelation during an interview with Mensah to Naa Ashorkor on Showbiz A-Z on JOY FM.
‘They told us that they made a mistake because ‘Odo’ had hit so much in Nigeria that when they were putting together the songs, they assumed Kidi was a Nigerian.
So they added him to a nomination which is meant for only Nigerians. When they realized that he was a Ghanaian they had to take his name out.
Richie opined that the mistake shows that Kidi made a great impact on the Nigerian music scene.
