Lynx entertainment act, Kidi has expressed his opinion on the current state of our veteran musicians in the country.
Kidi is of the view that veteran musicians who are currently broke should not blame Ghanaians for their current situation but themselves.
Most veteran musicians and some individuals in the Ghana movie industry after years of stardom come begging Ghanaians for money and also blame Ghanaians for their failures.
But Kidi believes Ghanaians do not have to be blamed for their misfortunes because they made money while they were on top of their game and needed to save and invest in areas they could rely on when they are no longer active in the industry.
He said “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”.
Kidi, however, mentions that the plight of old musicians scares him saying “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”.
