I lost VGMAs artiste of the year because of pride that night – KiDi admits


Dennis Nana Dwamena, better known as KiDi of the Lynx Entertainment has disclosed that he lost 22nd edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), Artiste of the Year to gospel diva, Diana Antwi Hamilton because of pride at that night.

In an interview with Tony Best on Akoma FM’s Entertainment 360 on Saturday, July 31, the Enjoyment hitmaker said that it is entirely expected that once named, you harbor the conviction that you can win the classes and perhaps win a definitive.

However at that point winning the Artiste of the Year got into his head a lot of when he won his third honor on the evening, he said.

When I took the first award, I didn’t talk too much, the second too, I spoke less in my acceptance speech, but when I took the 3rd award, it boosted my confidence and at that point I felt I was so close to winning the Artiste of the Year, the reason I said, ‘I will be back’.

“But at the point, I felt God said, ‘my guy, you’re becoming too proud for my liking’. The four you have received is okay, go home with it,” KiDi sarcastically said.

KiDi, who held his much-discussed tuning in of the ‘Golden Boy’ collection on Thursday, July 29, has effectively taken off advancing the collection.
