In other news, Ghanaian musician, KiDi has poured down his frustration about how some Ghanaians pen down harsh comments about musicians on social media without knowing how difficult their job is.
In an interview with Bliss Kingg on Starr FM, KiDi stated that musicians go through a lot of phases before putting their works out for public consumption but people always presume that the job is easy, hence they ought to be insensitive and harsh with their criticism.
He mentioned that there are times that musicians are not in the right state of mind, yet they need to departmentalize their minds just to put the negative energy and thoughts aside and open up for positivity in order to be creative with their craft.
However, he gets agitated when their hard work is meted with harsh and insensitive criticism by some of their fans on social media, disregarding the efforts they had to put into their work.
“A lot of people are not even good at their day jobs yet they will come and sit on social media and be telling artistes what to do”, KiDi lashed out.
