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.
