KiDi, a Ghanaian singer, has spoken out about his difficult childhood, which led to his father evicting him from his home.
KiDi claims that his rebellious behavior has caused him numerous problems at home and at school. His father once warned him about stealing food from his teacher.
During an appearance on Joy Prime’s The Doreen Avio Show, the musician claimed that his father had had enough of his problems and had ordered him to be undressed and placed outside.
KiDi felt compelled to change his behavior to please his father.
The musician also emphasized how stubborn he was as a child.
He changed his mind after his father threatened to have him evicted.
He claimed that he had been beaten on multiple occasions as a sort of punishment, but that it had not been effective in changing him.
“My dad called my big sister. He was like, ‘strip him naked; everything. No supporter, nothing, and then, when you’re done, put on his church shoes. So picture this: a young kid, naked, wearing only church shoes.
“My dad said, ‘since you want to act all grown up, leave my house and go and live in your own house.’ I’m still naked and wearing my church shoes. I started crying and walking out, and he called me back, and things have never been the same, so I feel like that punishment stuck with me more than any beating I have ever received,” he said.
