Not long ago, YEN.com.gh reported that the Ghanaian singer and songwriter reacted to a video of top Indian stars dancing to his song 'Touch It' in a video posted online.
He reposted the video on his personal Instagram account with a caption of gratitude and surprise at the global reach of his song.
The original video was posted by Farah Khan Kunder, an Indian film director, film producer, actress, dancer and choreographer.
It showed Kunder and her celebrity friends dancing to the song off KiDi's recently released 'GOLDEN BOY' album.
Commenting on the recent revelation, disc jockey of D-Black owned Club Onyx, Solomon Worlako famed as DJ Biggie noted that even though Kidi had a big song, the credit had to go to disc jockeys as well.
According to him, both mainstream and club DJs played a huge role in the song's success because they played it over and over again.
DJ Biggie also added that some credit had to go to content creators across all social media platforms who used the song in their videos that went viral.
"There is no doubt that Kidi's song is big but the credit has to go to other people including we the DJs and content creators who used the song in their viral videos", DJ Biggie noted.
These people also played a huge role in the song's success because if a DJ does not play your song, it would go nowhere. So I want to send huge shout outs to all DJ's who kept Touch It on repeat", DJ Biggie added.
