Kidi Tells Ghanaians: Stop The Ghana – Nigeria Music Comparison

Ghanaian afrobeats and high-life sensation, Dennis Nana Dwabena, widely known as KiDi, has recently expressed his disapproval of the continuous comparisons made between the Nigerian and Ghanaian music industries. In a candid interview with Pulse Ghana, the ‘LIKOR’ singer passionately addressed the prevalent practice of Ghanaians complaining about Nigeria’s music fraternity’s success on social media platforms.

According to KiDi, this constant comparison between the two nations’ music scenes is not only disheartening but also unproductive. While Nigeria’s musicians enjoy global and local acclaim, he firmly believes that it does not imply a lack of progress in the Ghanaian music space.

“I want us to dead this conversation and comparison spirit. It’s embarrassing and empathetic. We are always crying on the internet about Ghana and Nigeria; stop it, it’s embarrassing,” KiDi firmly stated.

The former VGMA Artiste of the year went on to point out that such bitterness stems from an unhealthy mindset where people feel the need to pull others down to elevate themselves. Instead of engaging in this negativity, KiDi called for appreciation of both industries’ unique strengths and potential.

In a refreshing perspective, KiDi encouraged Ghanaians to adopt a more proactive approach and learn from Nigeria’s success story. Rather than indulging in endless comparisons, he urged his compatriots to study and understand the factors that have contributed to Nigeria’s music industry growth. By doing so, Ghana can incorporate valuable lessons to further develop its own vibrant music scene.

“Just because someone’s life is at chapter 30 and yours is at chapter 5 doesn’t mean you should compare yourself to them. When someone is doing something good, big them up and learn how they got there and what they did to achieve their success. Apply those lessons in your own unique way,” KiDi emphasized.

Ultimately, KiDi’s call for unity and appreciation of each country’s music industry is a crucial step towards fostering collaboration and mutual growth. By learning from one another, both Ghanaian and Nigerian artists can collectively elevate African music to even greater heights on the global stage. As fans, critics, and industry stakeholders, let us embrace this message and celebrate the richness and diversity of music from both nations.
