Ghanaian musician KiDi made a surprise appearance at the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) on May 6, 2023, after taking a break from the spotlight due to health issues.
The singer, who was the second act of the night, wowed the audience with a beautiful rendition of his latest single “I Lied” and his hit song “I Am Blessed.”
KiDi had previously announced that he would be postponing his “Golden Boy” North American tour due to health issues. He also took a break from social media, which led to some fans speculating about his health. However, KiDi’s management later clarified that he was not suffering from a stroke, as some had rumored, but was simply taking some time to rest and recover.
In an Instagram post on April 14, 2023, KiDi thanked his fans for their support during his absence and addressed the rumors about his health. “A little under two months ago, I made the painful decision of cancelling my tour to take care of my health that included taking time off social media,” he wrote. “In that time, I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from family, friends, fans and the brands I work with. You all made me feel incredibly loved in this difficult period and I can’t appreciate you enough.”
KiDi went on to say that he was “glad to be back to doing what I love most; creating music and performing for you.” “Thanks for sticking it out with me,” he wrote. “Love, KiDi.”
KiDi’s surprise appearance at the VGMA was met with a warm welcome from fans and fellow musicians alike. The singer’s performance was a clear sign that he is back to full health and ready to continue his music career.
