Ghanaian singer, KiDi, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the way the Nigerian and Ghanaian music industry are frequently compared.

The singer believed it’s disappointing and counterproductive for his country men to constantly complain on social media about how great Nigeria’s music business is doing.

KiDi claimed that because Nigerian musicians are gaining global and local recognition does not mean that Ghana’s music industry is failing.

While speaking with Pulse Ghana, KiDi said:

“As a people, I want us to dead this conversation and comparison spirit, It’s embracing and empathetic. We are always crying on the internet about Ghana and Nigerian, stop it it’s embarrassing”.

“A lot of you sound bitter, like someone is doing something better and we can not big someone up without bring someone down. It should never be this way”.

The ‘Girl dem sugar’ crooner agreed that both industries should be valued for their distinctive contributions because they each had qualities and potential.

KiDi also argued for a more proactive strategy as opposed to engaging in endless comparisons.

The singer advised Ghanaians to take the time to research and learn from the success story of Nigeria, by comprehending the elements that Nigeria’s music industry has benefited from and that Ghana can apply to further enhance its music scene.

He said:

“Somebody’s life is at chapter 30 and your life is at chapter 5 and you want to compare yourself with them.”

“When someone is doing something good, big them up and learn how they got there and what they did to get to where they are and apply that in your own unique way”.

The singer further emphasized the need for a robust framework within the Ghanaian music industry.

KiDi claimed that establishing the necessary structures and support systems will help local artists reach greater heights and achieve international recognition.

He said:

“Let’s focus on ourselves and the stuff we have to do. We have to build structures. Every time someone on podcasts, go on the internet and start complaining about what someone has done or not. Please it’s embarrassing, stop it.”

KiDi also passionately called on Ghanaians to rally behind their artists and offer unwavering support.

By supporting homegrown talent and staying loyal to their artists, Ghanaians can foster an environment that nurtures creativity and innovation within the industry.

He further said:

“Life is not a race, a few people have ambition and are working hard. It probably won’t show today, but in a few years it will show. Just keep supporting and stick with us and eventually we will get there.”
