KiDi has taken to his Twitter handle to apologise for his comments about rapper Sarkodie in 2012, 2013 and 2014 on the platform.
According to him, when he made those post, he did not realise how negatively it would affect the people he talked about.
“But life has taught me to always appreciate people’s hustle and never speak ill about someone else,” KiDi wrote in his apology.
The ‘Say Cheese‘ has received backlash from Sarkodie fans after they dug up his old tweets about the rapper.
In 2012 when Sarkodie won the BET Awards KiDi wrote, “so Sarkodie won the BET Award last night…eeeiii we are dead!!!!”
In 2013, when R2Bees was nominated alongside Nigeria’s Ice Prince, 2Face Idibia, South Africa’s Toya Delazy, Donald and Uganda’s Goodlyfe Crew, KiDi was hoping the group would win.
He said that would shut Sarkodie up about being the only Ghanaian artiste with a BET. But as fate will have it, they lost out.
The tweets were dug up by some people when KiDi was dealing with the aftermath of being sacked from a radio interview.
He received backlash from Sark natives who said he (KiDI) hated the rapper.
To the extent of discrediting sarkodie when he’s in a competition with foreigners? Like Mafikizolo should win over Sark? Is that the level of hatred? We clearly agree everyone has a favorite Nana, buh ‘Support your own’ is never preached when the topic is ‘Sarkodie’.— Gyiminati_PRO 🇬🇭🇳🇬🐦 (@Snitchy_) May 15, 2020
However, some social media users have also come to his defence arguing that although there are some tweets which show he was a die-hard Sarkodie fan, KiDi definitely appreciated the rapper’s works.
Some have said he should not have apologise for having an opinion or a different taste in music.
So Sarknation didn’t see this tweet from Kidi ong? How can you say this guy hated Sarkodie?— Kelewele Joint 🍟 (@Ankamagyimi) May 15, 2020

He himself has forgotten that during that time he wasnt playing the favouritism card ..hence the ability to applaud and criticise any artist based on performance .. then he should apologize for applauding Sark on his performance too— AKWESI🍾🥂🐬 (@_Alby69) May 15, 2020
