Afrobeat singer KiDi has lamented over some challenges faced by young Africans when pursuing their dreams and aspirations.
The singer led this out while attending to some interview questions on the Day Show with Berla Mundi.
He noted that the delays and additional hurdles that individuals born in Africa often experience compared to their counterparts in more developed nations.
Kidi said: “As a kid, if you are born in this part of the world, your dreams and your goals are delayed 10 years. Whatever someone is doing five times, you have to do it times 50.
“Your effort has to be double; you have to strive, you have to have a monster mentality because you are unfortunate from the start; you’ve lost the race before it began.”
He noted: “Not just by being African, we know the broken systems and all—the entertainment industry, agriculture, and everything in Africa.”
