He soon shot to the limelight in 2017 after he released “Say You Love Me”, a song he composed, arranged, and produced.
By 2018, he was already a huge star who had won awards and bagged award nominations for his work, including the Highlife Song of the Year at Ghana Music Awards. However, as big as he already was, no one knew that KiDi had a son. He kept this part of his life so secret that even fellow superstars had no idea.
Eventually, KiDi stunned his fans and other industry experts on Thursday, 28th November 2019 when he revealed that he actually has a son who was three years old at the time.

Why He Kept His Son’s Birth A Secret
Days after he revealed to fans that he has a son, KiDi went on to reveal that the boy’s name is Zayne and also explained why he refused to talk about him until the child was three years old. He made these revelations while having an interview with MzGee on 3 FM days after his revelation about his kid. According to him, he kept the information about his son a secret because he was scared.
He explained that he was afraid because he was well aware of the fact that his fellow Ghanaians can be very judgmental when it comes to measuring people with the moral rod. According to him, Africans, in general, are judgemental when it comes to having a child outside wedlock so he decided to keep things out of reach of the public when his child was born to avoid any evil eye being turned on him.
What Finally Inspired KiDi To Talk About His Son Publicly?
When asked why he eventually decided to talk about his son, KiDi explained that he felt he had become mentally ready to talk about the matter with the general public so he shared his son’s pictures online.
