Award-winning Ghanaian singer/songwriter KiDi has been featured on Grammys, ‘It Goes To 11’. In his Episode, the afrobeat star gushes over his prized keyboard and revealed why it’s so crucial to every song he makes.
“The keyboard has always been the beginning of my creative process, any song I ever make, no matter the tempo, no matter the rhythm or what it sounds like. it always begins with the keyboard. it gives you the chance to make every song into a soul song before I put it on the beat. so the first keyboard I ever got I think was in high school. I remember getting the keyboard given to me as a present” KiDi said.
You can hear the keyboard’s influence across KiDi’s 2021 album The Golden Boy, which just won Album Of The Year at the 2022 Ghana Music Awards. KiDi also took home the show’s coveted Artiste Of The Year award, as well as Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year and Vodafone Most Popular Song for The Golden Boy hit “Touch It.”
As KiDi explains in the above video, part of what makes his process special is the “trance” he’s in when he creates his music. “If I’m talking about a woman, I just like to imagine that a woman is right in front of me,” he says. “If I’m talking about love, I just like to imagine myself in love … That’s how I get to let my emotions seep through the music.”
Check out the favorite keyboard of KiDi above, and come back to GRAMMYS for more episodes of It Goes To 11.
