Award-winning Highlife/Afrobeat musician, KiDi says he gets scared whenever he sees broke veteran musicians.
According to the ‘Odo’hitmaker, his fear is to end up broke in the future as he sees many
veteran musicians now broke any time he goes for events with his family.
“Sometimes when my family and my friends go out to see these veteran musicians and the way they are living now,
despite all the hit songs they released and the tours they did across the world, and seeing them like this today with no money,
some of them even ask for money to do their surgeries, it scares my family and they
ask if that is how I’m also going to end up, sometimes all these scare us,” he said.
He however advised his fellow musicians to invest while they are making money because good times do not last forever.
“I won’t blame Ghanaians that they don’t treat the industry people well, sometimes I feel like there is a hail period for every artiste to make money,
and, so, we should try to invest our money so that in the future if the money is not coming like the way it used to, we’ll still have something to work with,” he advised.
KiDi was speaking in an interview with Bismarck Boachie (DJ Premier) on Entertainment
Capital on Accra100.5FM on Saturday, 22 September 2018.
