Dennis Nana Dwamena, better known as KiDi, a Ghanaian high-life and afrobeats singer-songwriter.
He is signed to Lynx Entertainment and is best known for his hit single Odo .
Creatives all over the world agree on one thing, the most amazing ideas come to them in the weirdest places, and Lynx Signee KiDi is no different.
The “Say Cheese” hitmaker during a review of his Blue’ EP on 3FM’s Urban Blend with Miriam Osei Agyemang on Thursday, agreed that he has had some of his inspiration for songs at odd places and times.
“Inspiration hits in the weirdest places and the weirdest times…I may be doing the number two, I may be bathing, I may be in the middle of something,” he said.
When Mariam probed to find out what that “something” could be, he coyly responded, “fun activities…extra curricular activities.”
When the host pushed further and quizzed if he has been inspired to write a song or songs in the middle of making love, he responded in the affirmative.
“Oh yeah of course… ‘Freaky Lord’ [a song on the ‘Blue’ EP]…it wasn’t that song in particular but I’m saying like there’ve been songs where I’ve been in the middle of [making love]…and sometimes it hits.”
KiDi revealed “that’s why I always have my voice recorder,” when he is making love.
Over the years, the Lynx Entertainment signee has had music inspirations from dreams but unfortunately, he has not been able to record any.
“One of the weirdest things is when you have a dream and in the dream, you hear a song and in the dream, you know this song is a hit song. When I’m hearing the song in the dream I want to wake up and record it quickly because I know I will forget…by the time you wake up the song is gone…I’ve had a song based on a dream…” he recounted.
KiDi’s latest project, ‘Blue’, released on May 8, has received a lot of praise for the songs and quality of production.
The five-track EP is made of songs like ‘Say Cheese’, ‘One Man’, ‘End In Tears’, ‘Freaky Lord’, and ‘Next Time I See You’.
