All of KiDi‘s collaborations with other artists have been done for free, he claims, but going forward, the story will be different.
The A-list singer, who is one of the most powerful artists of the New School alongside label mate Kuame Eugene, recently stated in a Twitter Space that he will charge for collaboration.
The prolific hitmaker claimed during an interview with Olele Salvador of Ghana Weekend that the nation’s current economic suffering had influenced his final decision.
“You can ask all the artistes who have featured me on their songs. I’ve never charged taken a dime from them. I didn’t say I will not charge for features oo. I have never done that [before] but right now how the economy is going, ‘asesa’ [things have changed].
He was keen to point out that, as required by copyright regulations, even though he doesn’t get paid for features, he always retains ownership of the song’s earnings.
