Ghanaian singer KiDI is notable for his tattoos, all over his hands, his chest and other places.
Our society frowns on tattoos. KiDi being a public eye has decided to explain why he has tattoos on his body
According to KiDi, his tattoos represent some of his family members who are dead.
“The last time I came here, I didn’t have tattoos. Every stripe stands for a dead member of my family, so, every band is for mourning, this is my dad’s because that’s the biggest one and my two grand mums [My mum’s mum and dad’s mum].
“I have [on] my chest, I have Zane, that’s my son’s name and then I have Sugar, the name of my first album. It’s now symbolic; now, it’s like no matter how much I grow, if I’m fifty, I’ll always remember that it was iconic at a time in my life…”
