I Didn’t Call Davido For Our Collaboration – Kidi Tells Story

Real name, David Nana Dwamena but known in the music industry as Kidi, he was on Youtube’s show Enter chat to talk music and his personal life.

When the host, Fresh Boy Papa Jay asked him about his “odo remix” which features Nigeria’s Mayourkun and Davido, the Lynx Entertainment signee said that he didn’t personally call to invite singer, Davido to sing on the track.

He narrated that, Mayorkun was on a tour in Ghana when he released the original “Odo” single. He continued that, Mayorkun called and praised him because he liked the song himself. He further divulged that Mayourkun loved the song when he heard it constantly on radio, TV club and many other places so he requested for a remix.

Kidi continued saying that, he thought it had ended there until he was told by Mayorkun that he has shown the song to Davido who liked it as soon as he heard it.

“Because it has a resemblance of his hit track “if”, the line “30 billion” caught his ear and showed so much interest in the song.

I was there one day when we had a call from mayorkun to check my mail”, he said. He said that he checked his mail and it was Davido verse of the “Odo” track. It actually came as a real surprise because I never thought of landing a singer like Davido on my track that quick but boom it had happened.” he told show host.

Most Ghanaian Artistes Visit ‘Juju’ For Hit Songs – eShun Reveals

Sensational soul singer, eShun has revealed in an interview on Okay FM that most Ghanaian musicians seek spiritual backing or better still ‘juju‘ to fuel their popularity in the music industry.

The Quophimens signed act recounted how a traditional priest approached her with an offer to back her career spiritually, so she can finally release a hit song like the others.

Unfortunately, she refused to mention names of colleague musicians who have consulted the traditional priest in question for spiritual support as revealed to her by the priest.

“I can’t mention names. However, he mentioned some of my colleagues. Some of these musicians are making hit songs because they have spiritual backings”, she said.

However, eshun posited that she’s not bothered by the fact that she has not made it big in Ghana music industry despite the concern expressed by her loyal fans.

“It is a process, everyone needs to go through it. It doesn’t bother me at all”, she stated.

Recall that gospel musician Adu Patrick once said that about 70% of Ghanaian gospel artistes rely on “juju” to back up their career. Besides, rapper Tinny, as well as Flowking Stone, have all shared similar sentiment sometime ago.

Therefore, what eShun is saying has an element of truth and validity.
