Music star KiDi, known in private life as Dennis Dwamena, has spoken after losing out on the ultimate at the 2021 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA 2021).
KiDi had been highly tipped to win the Artiste of the Year award and the night started well for him.
By the time the last two categories, Song and Artiste of the Year were announced, KiDi had won four awards already.
The singer had won the Highlife Song of the Year, Afrobeats/Afropop Song of the Year, Afrobeats/Afropop Artiste of the Year, and EP of the Year. He even promised to come back for more after receiving the last one.
But he could not come as promised as he lost out on the remaining awards to gospel singer Diana Hamilton.
Moments after Hamilton was announced KiDi took to social media to thank God and his fans. He also used post on Twitter to congratulate Hamilton.
"To God be the Glory. Thank you Ghana. Huge congrats Aunty Diana," he wrote in Twitter.

Diana Hamilton sets record
By her win, Hamilton has become the second-ever gospel singer to win the ultimate in the 22-year history of the awards. Joe Mettle won in 2017.
She is also the second-ever female artiste to emerge as the Artiste of the Year at the VGMA. The first was Ebony Reigns who won in 2018.
Considering that Ebony won the Artiste of the Year posthumously, Hamilton has become the first woman alive to receive the award.
