“The Energy Used In ‘Beefs’ Can Be Channeled In Making Hit Songs,” KiDi Speaks Against Feuds In The Industry
Musician Kidi says he is always sad when musicians engage in “Beefs” or misunderstandings. According to Kidi, Ghana’s music industry is very small and the energy used in these “Beefs” can be channeled into making hit songs that can fetch musicians.
Speaking to Doreen Avio, Kidi asked Guru and Kuami to settle their differences to bring peace and put everything behind them for the betterment of the industry.
“Every time there is “beef” or anything close to “beefs”, misunderstanding, I get sad. Anyone that knows me knows that I don’t like trouble. If I step on somebody’s toes, and the person goes around saying all sorts of things, I feel bad. I want the quickest way to make up and let’s get back to a happy way. Anytime I see misunderstanding going on social media among artistes especially, is sad, because the industry we are in is very small, we should not let petty things divide us.”
On the issue between Guru and Kuami Eugene, Kidi says he hopes it is resolved immediately.
“I hope that all parties involved can come to an amicable to end this together, discuss it, trash it and let’s move on. Let’s come together and make the music that will bring us money. Fights are not necessary.” The lynx entertainment signee said.
The “Gyal dem sugar” Hit maker said the reason why they have not settled the feud between Guru and Kuami Eugene is that the feud keeps unfolding. He was positive that the issue would be solved and peace will prevail afterwards.
Guru has released a diss song for VGMA’s Artiste of the Year winner and Lynx Entertainment signee, Kuami Eugene title “who born dog” after he said Kuami Eugene has disrespected him due to some comments he made about guru some few weeks ago.
Kuami Eugene in the past weeks made comments that he will not collaborate with Guru because he once disrespected his boss, Richie. Those comments did not go down well with a lot of social media users who blasted him for being disrespectful. Guru also reacted to the statement saying he did not beg for the collaboration. He said he had only wanted to work with Kuami Eugene because he admired his talent.
