KIDi says he became too proud on the night of the just-ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) and that made him lose Artiste of the Year to Diana Antwi Hamilton.
In his latest interview with Tony Best on Akoma FM yesterday, KiDi said that it is normal that once nominated, you harbour the belief that you can win the categories and possibly win the ultimate award.
But then winning the Artiste of the Year got into his head too much when he won his 3rd award on the night and came to believe at all cost he was winning the ultimate Artist of the year award, he said.
“When I took the first award, I didn’t talk too much, the second too, I spoke less in my acceptance speech, but when I took the 3rd award, it boosted my confidence and at that point I felt I was so close to winning the Artiste of the Year, the reason I said, ‘I will be back’.
“But at the point, I felt God said, ‘my son, you’re becoming too proud for my liking’. The four you have received is okay, go home with it,” KiDi humorously said
Even though there was a lot of technicalities that went on on calculating and deciding the Winner and most deserving Artist for the ultimate Artist of the year award.
But still the majority of Ghanaians believed Kidi was the best Artist and most deserving despite Diana Hamilton’s Adom which overplayed Kidi and won her the award.
