Ghanaian artiste KiDi has taken to his Twitter handle to apologise for his comments about prominent personalities including President Nana Akufo Addo, John Dramani Mahama, and rapper Sarkodie in 2012, 2013, and 2014 on the bird platform, Twitter.
According to him, at the time he made those tweets, he was young, ignorant, and didn’t understand the implications and consequences of his words.

“Years ago, when I was young and ignorant and didn’t understand the implications and consequences of my words, I tweeted things that were inappropriate and unkind. As I matured, I came to be extremely regretful of these actions and how they affected the parties involved,” KiDi wrote in his apology.
In the statement released on his Twitter page, he continued that “I want to apologise again to everyone for the statements I made, and use this to remind us all to be mindful of the things we say and how they affect people. Let’s be Kind to each other”.
The ‘Say Cheese‘ hitmaker was trending on Twitter yesterday, Wednesday, September 28, after users of the app resurrects his old tweets sighting unflattering comments about President Akufo-Addo, John Mahama, Sarkodie Delay and others.
In one of the tweets, the singer said, “Nana Addo’s Face Has Fooled”.
In another tweet, KiDi criticized former President Mahama’s presidency and how bad it was.
“Y’all complain About Mahama, LMAO… Niggaz Got 3 MORE YEARS. Means 3 MORE YEARS of suffering or maybe worse,” he tweeted.
The VGMA Artiste of the Year also picked on the most decorated rapper in Ghana, sarkodie and his goal of bringing a Grammy home one day.
” @TheStreetlife: Whosoever thinks sarkodie will ever win a Grammy is an idiot. Period!” he wrote.
KiDi also disclosed his past romance with TV3 Presenter Anita Akuffo, who was then his classmate.
“Back in Class 3, whenever a Sean Paul song came up in the Jams Room, I went wild on Anita’s Ass…,” he tweeted.
Users were shocked that the Highlife/Afrobeats singer could write such uncomplimentary comments about known public figures.
Some Twitter users argue that it could be that he bought the account from another user or probably because he was young and wild and didn’t know he would shoot to stardom.
KiDi shot to prominence in 2017 when he released Say You Love Me and got to establish himself as one of the fastest-rising stars in Ghana with another chart-topper titled “Odo” in July 2017.
In May 2022, KiDi was crowned the Artiste of the Year at the 2022 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
KiDi was also one of the biggest winners on the night, scooping five awards at the VGMAs.
