There is a saying that the internet never forgets and can come back to haunt you; and that is what has happened to silky-voiced singer Kidi.
His old ‘insulting and hating’ tweets he made about Sarkodie some eight years ago have resurfaced on the internet and people have ciriticised him for them.
Kidi made the tweets in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
In the 2012 tweet, he wrote that Sarkodie had won a BET award adding that “we are dead”.
His expression is commonly used when someone feels another person would not make people rest by bragging about their achievements.
In the 2013 tweet, Kidi wrote that “If R2Bees wins this BET award, Sarkodie can shut up as the only Ghanaians artiste with a BET.”
In the 2014 tweet, the Odo singer was disgruntled that Sarkodie won another BET Award. He preferred M.anifest to win.
Many years down the line, these old tweets have popped up, a good reminder that the internet does not die.
He has thus apologised saying that he wrote things that he did not know would affect people negatively.
The singer explained that he was too young to understand what he was doing after he wrote such messages and asked for Ghanaians to forgive him.
The host of the show, Nana Romeo, found Kidi’s behaviour very insulting and disrespectful, hence, cancelling the scheduled interview.
