Award-winning singer and composer,, KiDi, has revealed that some politicians resurrected his earlier tweets on purpose that had embarrassed him in public and drawn ire.
Before learning that a National Democratic Congress (NDC) account was the source of the cached tweets, the singer of “Touch it” claimed he had no idea where they came from.
In an interview with DJ Ohemaa Woyeje of Angel FM on the program Yadwumanie, KiDi stated that he is unsure of what he said or did to trigger the issue but is aware that it is out of the ordinary.
“Later when we investigated, we realised that it came from an NDC account…”, he told host of the show.
Explaining further, the award-winning elaborated, saying, “These NDC boys on Twitter just went back and started searching for people who have said something about Mahama in order to give them pressure to say something about Nana Akufo-Addo as well because when Mahama came you spoke about him but with Akufo-Addo you are silent. To put it bluntly, it was all political.
It escalated, he claimed, and “everyone was saying KiDi too has said some silly things previously so let’s go dig them out.” He speculated that the attackers’ goal had been to get him to speak out against the present government the way he had spoken out against ex-President John Mahama.
In response to a question on how he is handling the situation, he said, “it has been hard… I won’t exaggerate… This is difficult, and I wish no one else had to go through it.” he stated.
KiDi mentioned that the sad part is that people don’t check the date those comments were made but “I dont blame anybody, the people who took the screenshots to Facebook cropped out the time stamp” and it gives the impression that it was something recent.
“Honestly, I hope people forgive me …this is something I said ten years ago…I’m not even the same person I was a year ago…I’ve grown, I’ve learnt to be different, to be kind, show basic human courtesy.
“Even though you did it ten years ago, it is still wrong. people are affected”, he said while apologizing to all the victims.
