Ghanaian singer and songwriter, Kidi has urged colleague musicians to see awards as a ‘bonus’ and not to set their hopes on winning an award no matter what.
Speaking on ‘The Zone’ on Starr 103.5 FM Wednesday, the ‘Odo’ crooner stated he doesn’t have expectations with regards to Ghana’s biggest awards scheme, VGMA.
“To be honest, I never expect anything for Ghana music awards. That’s a sure way to doom yourself, have expectations,” explained Kidi to host Jon Germain.
“You just have to do your part as a musician, make music, make the people like the music, make people happy with the music.”
He argued for artists to concentrate on perfecting their craft and seeing awards as a bonus of a sort: “If the board and the public think okay this young man has done enough to deserve this category up for award, we give it to him. If not the vision still continues, there is a bigger vision than awards. I mean it’s good as a musician to be awarded, it boosts your ego like what I’m doing people are paying attention. But if it doesn’t come, it shouldn’t stop you or derail you from the main purpose.”
He also spoke about what is supposedly a switch from RnB, which he was known for during his ‘underground’ days to highlife music as a mainstream artiste.
“I had to sit down and reevaluate myself. I feel like highlife is not so different form RnB. What Chris Brown does is RnB, but when he comes to Ghana its highlife. The only difference is the instrumentation and the melody,” explained the Lynx Entertainment artiste.
“I didn’t move away from RnB, it was just a blend of finding that middle ground to be able to still not compromise on my talent at the same time give the people what they want. I’ve not moved away, I’m still doing the same thing I used to do, just in a different way.”
He explained the reasoning behind his song ‘Mr. Badman’ featuring Kwesi Arthur not being a love anthem compared to his previous songs: “I wanted to do something for the first time that didn’t have anything to do with love.”
No Gospel Artiste Can Win Souls For Christ More Than Kanye West : Sonnie Badu
Ghanaian Gospel artiste Sonnie Badu has made a statement that we believe would shock many Christians who hold him in high esteem.
According to Minister Sonnie Badu, American rapper and singer Kanye West is more powerful than most Gospel musicians and Bishop in the world and can pull more souls to Christ than the Gospel artistes.
He made this statement on his official Instagram handle where he shared the artwork of Kanye’s new album with the caption: “The disciples had a major concern about Paul. Why? Because they just could not fathom how they could spend 3 years with the Master and yet Paul who was a killer, had never met him had more insight and wrote more books in the scriptures than they did. Well, the reason is quite simple,”
He continued: “What God could use Paul to do, he could not use Peter in that same regard (illiteracy and understanding times and seasons). Recall Paul was very well educated and well informed, with that said, this man @kanyew.est can fill arenas and win souls for Christ, more than all of us. But they wondered about his past though ?”
