He was adjudged the ultimate winner of the 2015 MTN Hitmaker reality show season 4 by defeating all four finalists including Abena, Yaw, CJ, and Gunshot.

KiDi, who is signed to Lynx Entertainment, is best known for hit singles like “Say You Love Me” and “Odo” with the remix version featuring Nigeria’s superstars Davido and Mayorkun.

Dennis Nana Dwamena aka KiDi was born on Wednesday, August 18th, 1993.

The “Odo” singer is currently 27 years of age and will be 28 come August this year, 2021.

Kidi Parents, Family & Death Of His Father

KiDi aka “Mr Suga Daddy” was born to the late Mr Gerald and Mrs Beatrice Thompson in Accra, Ghana.

The singer has two younger brothers who are known as Philip and Elliot.

KiDi was only 7 years old when armed robbers stormed their house and in the process, sadly gave his father some severe beatings of his life.

His dad, Mr Gerald after that ordeal became seriously sick and was admitted to the hospital but sadly died.

KiDi on Thursday, November 28th, 2019, shocked many of his fans when he shared a photo of himself and his 3-year-old son named Zane Nana Boadi Dwamena aka Zee Skit & Sugar who was born in 2016.

This became a huge “disappoint” to many of his followers especially the ladies who have long been trying to catch his eye.

Kidi — who fathered his son at age 23 long before he became famous — managed to keep it private until recently because he was afraid of what Ghanaians were going to say about him having a kid at that early age.

When he was asked in an interview with MzGee on ‘3 FM’ about who the mother of his son is, the “Enjoyment” hitmaker said his baby mama who’s older than him, is a London-based Sugar Mummy reportedly named Van Alst.

According to Kidi, he is no longer in a relationship with his baby mama Van Alst but they still communicate and are co-parenting.

Music career, 2015 MTN Hitmaker Season 4 Winner

Kidi started his music career performing and showcasing his talent on “Moonlight Café” — a production platform for new and up-and-coming artistes to display and exhibit their God-given talents to the world.

He eventually emerged victorious of the 2015 MTN Hitmaker season 4 competition and was later signed by Lynx Entertainment owned by Richie Mensah.

In 2017, KiDi became an instant hit when he wrote, composed and produced the forever soothing love song, “Say You Love Me“.

Kidi released another banger titled “Odo” in July 2017 which was later remixed in December 2017 to include popular Nigerian musicians, Davido and Mayorkun.
