In 2012, Kida Kudz was one of the most promising rap acts in the country. He shot to stardom after winning the 2nd edition of Peak Talent Show. Having hooked up with Olamide, he got into business with ID Cabasa, under the Coded Tunes imprint.
Being UK-based Nigerian-British, Coded tunes artiste alongside Olamide was everything in 2012. Kida was also just 17 at the time. So he seemed to be in a perfect condition.
But he did not become rap’s next big thing. He went back to UK and his music stopped buzzing. Kida wasn’t a big deal in the industry anymore. His deal with Cabasa’s Coded Tunes, must have fallen out along the line. And for years, he kept pushing his craft from the UK with Nigeria as the target market. His music never quite caught the attention of the fans
Recently though, he is attempting a comeback. Kida Kudz is really putting in extra effort in pushing his jams. He is straight-up doing hook-ups and collaborating with raving artistes.
That was the case with his “Dab It” single, which featured Reekado Banks. His “Last Last” track features DMW rapper, Dremo and now we have “Issa Vibe”.
Now he’s here with a remix to the “Issa Vibe” single. The remixed version featured Burna Boy and Geko, and the song is Afrobeat, oops. He is obviously fixing to gain the attention of the industry that once saw him as promising.
Now it seems the table has turned and, Kida Kudz might just be telling us he’s switching from rap to pop. He’s not the first to do that however. In the past, there has been Ice Prince, Skales, Dice Ailes and more!
In the meantime, if you want some rap stuffs devour, you might just wanna checkout Nasty C’s new album.
