I Felt Embarrassed By My Old Tweets – KiDi



Musician KiDi says he was embarrassed by his old tweets that resurfaced on social media last week.

In an interview on Hitz FM yesterday, he described the tweets as unfortunate.

“I felt very embarrassed and down. Sad. Defeated. There were a lot of happenings at that time. I had already been in a weird mental space. I didn’t even have time to breathe and reset. Not only that, but I left my EP listening session. I broke down, and it was a lot for me. I felt embarrassed about all of it. I couldn’t be there. We had finished listening to the songs, but I did a little and I had to leave,” he said.

Last week, the ‘Touch It’ hitmaker apologised for the tweets, saying he couldn’t even remember some of them.

“I don’t even remember tweeting some of those things. I look at them like, ‘I said this?’ A lot of the values we believe strongly in them, we had to go through certain things. And we had to unlearn some things to relearn them. You had to learn a little human compassion.

“We had to grow to get here, and that was a different era of social media. You could say anything, and it didn’t matter at that time. There are a lot of things… I just wished the people will not define me by who I was then,” he added.

“At that era of social media, everyone was being silly… Like a new app called Twitter, just tweet your mind. I didn’t tweet them to be offensive, and some of them are just banter that I regret tweeting,” he said.

“I would have wanted all of that attention to go to my ‘4Play’ EP. Likewise, I was wondering where all these people were when I released my EP,” he indicated.
