Two of Afrobeats and Highlife singers/songwriters, KiDi and Kuami Eugene, are the latest Ghanaians to be added to the steadily expanding list of artistes who have racked up enormous success at the Indigo at the O2 after performing their discographies in their entirety to a full-capacity crowd at a concert dubbed “KiDi and Kuami Eugene Live in Concert”.
Following the release of their critically acclaimed albums, Golden Boy (2021) and Son of Africa (2021), fans were not only immersed in Ghana’s unique sounds, live instrumentation, and vibes, but also lauded the Lynx Entertainment signed artistes’ love and appreciation for where they come from and their incredibly inspiring journey.
KiDi and Kuami Eugene Live in Concert, which took place on Sunday, March 6, Ghana’s independence day celebration and hosted by prolific radio and tv personality, Doreen Avio and Afrobeats promoter Adesope Olajide, encompasses their almost half-decade discographies, which have received credible global recognition.
As previously said, this hugely sought after event was primarily established on their internationally acclaimed records, including singles that broke into the UK music and appeared on credible charts, that signaled a transition towards a more refined, complex, smooth afrobeat and highlife sound. The evening’s libidinal party bounce was boosted by older materials from the duo. KiDi and Eugene’s dynamic club bangers were well greatly embraced by the audience at the Indigo at the O2 Arena.
The night also featured a starry cameo from prominent local and international musicians, including multiple award-winning reggae and dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy; Highlife crooner, Kwabena Kwabena; Rap Phenom, Sarkodie; and Nigeria’s afrobeat exports, Patoranking and Mayorkun. Other guest talents added an invigorating performance to the onstage chemistry.
KiDi and Kuami Eugene are award-winning singer-songwriters from Ghana and two of the fastest rising talents of their generation. They have both enjoyed critical and commercial success over the last few years and have very quickly established themselves as the leaders of the new school of Ghanaian highlife and afrobeats music.
