Highlife and Afrobeat artist, Kidi has bagged the ultimate award at the just ended 3music awards program as he emerged the winner of the ‘Artist of the Year’ category.
Kidi won the coveted award of the night amid competition from Kuami Eugene, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, Adina, Diana Hamilton, Medikal, and Fameye.
More so, the Lynx Entertainment signee was not only crowned with the biggest award but he also won the most awards on the night. He took home three others: Afrobeat Song of the Year, Song of the Year, and EP of the Year.
KiDi won both the ‘Afrobeat Song of the Year’ and ‘Song of the Year’ with his viral song Enjoyment released in January 2020. The ‘Say Cheese’ hitmaker also won the ‘EP of the Year’ award with the critically acclaimed ‘Blue EP’ released in May 2020 amid the lockdown.
Accepting his award, the singer said he is thankful to his fans, team, and family for their support and hard work.
“A big thank you to God for this; I am so grateful. To my family, my entire team, I’m grateful. Everybody that has supported my career I am so grateful. The fans without you, I wouldn’t be here. Thank you.”Kidi
