KiDi explores health, life, and grief in his new song “Not Ok,” getting personal in the process



Dennis Nana Dwamena, best known by his stage name KiDi, has opened up about his health, life, and loss in a new song titled “Not Ok.”

Themes that are sure to hit home with listeners are touched on in the moving reflection on what he’s been through over the previous few months.

The song features the musician’s vulnerability as he discusses his personal issues and refutes rumors that he had a stroke while on break.

Before KiDi enters with his soulful vocals and sighs, the song opens with a somber string arrangement. He sings about the challenges of coping with life’s challenges and health troubles.

One of the most moving lines in the song is found in the opening verse: “If I tell you to say I’m okay then I lied, Everything I feel in my heart and soul, Oh as you see me, so I’m smiling, but I’m dead inside,” which is bound to resonate with anyone who has ever experienced mental illness.

KiDi emphasizes the theme that life is valuable and delicate and that we should be kind to individuals, especially when unaware of their circumstances, throughout the song.

He sings of his liver problems, his battle with despair, and hiding inside, providing a real and realistic representation of sadness.

The song’s release is especially appropriate given that he announced his recovery last week with a video showing him looking fantastic and sipping from a cup.

“A little under two months ago, I made the difficult choice to postpone my tour in order to take better care of my health, which meant avoiding social media. The love I have received over that period from my family, friends, fans, and the brands I work with has left me speechless. I can’t express how much I appreciate how you all helped me feel so loved throughout this challenging time, he wrote in a Facebook post.

The fact that many individuals still experience worry, depression, and grief makes KiDi’s “Not Ok” an important and timely addition to the musical scene.


The “Touch It” singer said earlier in February declared on that he was postponing his North American tour because of health problems.

“Hi my loves, it is with a very heavy heart that I announce the postponement of my Golden Boy North American Tour,” the singer wrote in a statement on his verified social media account. I am aware of how very upsetting this news is for many of you. It was wonderful to see how enthusiastic you all were to come to see me on this tour, and I was really looking forward to our time together.

On March 16, Richie Mensah, the head of his label, responded to rumors that Kidi had suffered a stroke by labeling them “click bait” in a tweet.
The producer and artist management urged supporters of the Artiste of the Year nominee for the 2022 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) to disregard social media rumors.

“KiDi has not experienced a stroke. Ignore the clickbait and rumors, he tweeted.

I went through depression that nearly took my life – Evang. Amy Newman



Evangelist Amy Newman, a well-known gospel performer, has disclosed that she had despair that almost claimed her life.

The singer of the hit song “Okamafo Jesus” claimed in an interview with Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the host of Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show, that she was only experiencing death during that time.

She adds that she had to experience spiritual deliverance before being saved.

“Four years ago, I traveled quite a bit; that was my relaxation. I suffered from depression during those four years and only saw death. If I locked myself in the room, the only thought on my mind would be to die, she said.

A new song called “Makoma Ahye Ma” was released by evangelist Amy Newman.

Amy claims that after she overcame her despair, the new track’s release was precipitated.

“I wrote this song, Makoma Ahye Ma, in 2009, but after going through a depressive episode, I chose to release it as a way to express my gratitude to God.”

She continues by saying that the new song has been posted on all of her social media accounts, and she encourages everyone to go check it out.

Camidoh features Vybz Kartel, Miss Lafamilia, and DJ Lara Fraser for new Summer anthem “Taxi Man”



A fantastic summer anthem called “Taxi Man” was released by Ghanaian afropop singer and songwriter Camidoh. Download and stream “Taxi Man” here:

“Taxi Man,” a song co-produced by Ghana’s Streetbeatz and the renowned UK producer Toddla T, also features verses from the legendary Jamaican dancehall artist Vybz Kartel, the UK’s rising star Miss LaFamilia, and the Grammy-winning DJ and producer DJ Lara Fraser. Each of these artists contributes their distinct and unmatched performance style to the song.

The Ghanaian BET Award candidate for Afropop’s distinctive R&B and afrobeats rhythms are what give “Taxi Man” its distinctive dancehall and afrobeats mix. The song is accompanied by a beautiful portrait-style music video created by Amane Akbaraly. The video, which was shot at the renowned Zap Studios in Camberwell, London, documents a day spent with DJ Lara Fraser, Camidoh, and Miss LaFamilia.

With nominations for the BET Awards, AFRIMA, and The Headies, as well as praise for his debut project L.I.T.A., Camidoh has been on the rise. He made his debut on the Ghanaian music scene in 2018 after signing with the independent label Grind Don’t Stop (GDS) and releasing his debut track, “For My Lover.” The single and its remix generated excitement about him as the next big thing, which led to the release of his debut effort, the six-track EP known as Contigency Plan (CP), to rapturous reviews.

The viral smash tune “Sugarcane,” which Camidoh debuted in December, was his big break, though. When the chart-topping “Sugarcane” remix with King Promise, Mayorkun, and Darkoo was released in April 2022, it propelled Camidoh to stardom and made him one of the most sought-after African artists of the year. To further broaden his appeal throughout Africa and beyond, he released the mini album “Sugarcane EP” and the notable singles “Kaba” and “Slow” after the big single.

Early this year, he joined the exclusive Golden Club of Boomplay, Africa’s largest music streaming and download service, after becoming the second Ghanaian artist to attain and surpass the milestone of 100 million streams.

I’m glad that everyone is picking up my book. After the release of her book, Yvonne Nelson talks for the first time.



Yvonne Nelson, an actress and novelist from Ghana, has expressed her happiness over the positive reception to her memoir, “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson.”

Yvonne Nelson highlighted in an exclusive interview with Giovani Caleb on 3FM that the demand for her novel has outstripped expectations and caused a lack of accessible copies during her book signing event at Silverbird Cinemas.

Since there aren’t enough books available right now, I’m glad Ghana is reading. I’m glad that everyone is reading, she said.

When questioned about the possibility of making a film version of her novel, Yvonne Nelson said she did not see herself taking on the position of producer for the endeavor.

“I don’t think I’ll be the one to produce it, but I feel great that people are reading,” she said, gesturing to the audience.

She didn’t give specifics, but her response hints that there may be plans or negotiations for a movie version.

Her tense relationship with her mother and the unanswered concerns about her father’s identity are two major themes in Yvonne Nelson’s memoir; nevertheless, she refuses to comment on how her mother reacted to the book and the disclosures in it.

She replied, “I think she’s reading it too, and I think everyone else is reading, so it’s good.

On Apple’s Memoirs and Biographies list, “I am Not Yvonne Nelson,” which explores her personal journey and illuminates the truths of the celebrity world, is presently in the top spot.

Yvonne Nelson also expressed her happiness at the book’s popularity, saying, “We are number 1 on Apple Memoirs and Biographies so it’s good, I’ve got people reading and that’s good.”

Plans to refill “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson” have been made in reaction to the book’s resounding success.

Yvonne Nelson stressed her dedication to enabling universal access to her memoir by revealing that extra copies will be made available at the University of Ghana bookstore.

“By Friday we are going to get more and send them to the University of Ghana bookstore, I gave them copies and it got finished in thirteen minutes, all over Ghana we’ll make sure we supply to all the bookstores,” said Yvonne to Giovani Caleb.

The ‘Princess Tyra’ actress hasn’t discussed her memoir since it was published on Sunday, but she chose not to mention the subjects and people she mentioned in the compelling book.
