@rashthejourno: Kidi deserves this year's #VGMA artiste of the year award as he was very vibrant and instrumental these past months between 2021 and 2022. And also his album did well in 2021 which led to some of the songs being TikTok bangerz with people across Asia and America hitting on it.
@berlamundi: Me: Kidi won’t you tell us you’ll be back? @KiDiMusic: it’s in God’s hands #VGMAonTV3 #vgma23
