After VGMA, Christians regard me as if I'm Satan, which is unjust — KiDi sobs.

After VGMA, Christians regard me as if I'm Satan, which is unjust — KiDi sobs.

KiDi, an Afropop singer, has expressed his displeasure with some Christians who have criticized him after he lost the Artiste of the Year award to Gospel singer Diana Hamilton.

 

After defeating KiDi and other rivals in the category, Hamilton was named the overall best artist at the 22nd Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).

In an interview with Hitz FM, KiDi expressed his displeasure with the negative comments made by some Christians and Gospel musicians, expressing how unfairly he has been treated as a devil.

“I have heard comments like ‘You think you can come and beat ‘Adom’ with ‘Say Cheese’ and I am like, am I devil, am I demon?” the ‘Touch It’ composer queried.

KiDi added: “E be work I dey work, I no kill person, we are people happy through our music.

“I keep saying this all the time that most of the Gospel musicians are the most hypocrites. Yes, you are a Christian but it doesn’t make you more righteous than me, the fact that I am doing ‘Say Cheese and ‘Enjoyment’ doesn’t make me less righteous.”

He marvelled why these Christians will enjoy his songs at weddings “but today you want to put me on the chopping board and paint me as the demon.”

“It is not right, it is not fair, we do music to bring happiness to people whether Gospel or Hip Life, Afrobeat, we share love through our music so I am not Satan,” KiDi further stated.

“But today you want to put me on the chopping board and paint me as the demon,” he wondered why these Christians enjoy his music at weddings.


“It is not right, it is not fair,” KiDi continued. “We perform music to provide happiness to people, whether Gospel or Hip Life, Afrobeat, we spread love via our music, therefore I am not Satan.”

“To God be the Glory. Thank you Ghana. Huge congrats Aunty Diana,” he wrote.
