Days ago, Ghanaian musician, KiDi revealed that King Promise was purposely taken off his ‘Enjoyment’ tune by his management, Legacy Life Entertainment.
Kidi who revealed that he related by blood with King Promise disclosed that King Promise was slated to feature on his song but due to reasons that were beyond the control of both artists, King Promise’s management requested that his verse be taken off the song.
Speaking in an interview on United Showbiz on UTV hosted by Abeiku Santana, Kidi stated that King Promise’s verse was taken off by the request of his management, however, he believes everything happens for a reason but his relationship with King Promise has been smooth.
