Grammys Is Not My Benchmark – Kidi Reveals
Written by Prince Swaggart on 07/13/2021
Ghanaian Highlife and Afrobeats singer, Dennis Nana Dwamena, better known as KiDi, has stated that his attention is focused on making good music in Africa and not winning Grammy awards to impress people in the entertainment industry.
Speaking to Nigeria’s Afrobeats podcast journalist Adesope Olajide on an Instagram live interview on Wednesday, monitored by BEATWAVES, KiDi said it’s fulfilling for any African artiste to win an international award like the Grammy’s and the BET’s for recognition, saying,
“I’m not focused on winning these awards but will produce good music to gain that global recognition we’ve all been praying for the past years now.”
KiDi made this statement when asked about his aspirations on winning the Grammy’s and the BET for Ghana following Burna Boy’s huge achievement.
“As an African artiste, I keep saying that my philosophy is not to work towards the Grammys, BET, or any other awards, I believe that if I work hard, push hard and the music itself is speaking, everything else will fall in place for me. If my music lovers praise my song and make it big, it will cross boundaries and knock the doors of these international awards and open the doors for me.”
“It more of been focused and doing the music than working towards awards like the BET’s and the Grammy’s, and this is just my philosophy as an artiste, I will also congratulate Burna Boy once again for his success but I believe if am focused on my music all other things will surely follow.”
KiDi, who is set for his “Live With KiDi” show on July 29, recently released his much-anticipated album titled ‘The Golden Boy’ album, which contains 14 tracks including ‘Golden Boy’, ‘Birthday Riddim’, ‘Magic’, ‘Cyclone’, ‘Dangerous’, ‘Send Me Nudes’ featuring Jory B, ‘Daddy Issues’, ‘Mon Bebe’, and ‘So Fine’.
