KiDi, a highlife/afrobeats artist, has revealed a partnership Ghanaians were not expecting after having discussions with some legendary Bollywood actors.
Fans are eagerly awaiting a new song by KiDi featuring Tulsi Kumar, a well-known Bollywood singer and actress.
The two are filming a classical music video for their song Shut Up in India as part of the agreement.
Fans of the two artists have praised their cooperation as one of the best examples of cross-cultural representation, while Gal Dem Sugar KiDi is currently studying some Bollywood dance steps to add a last touch of finesse.
He was photographed in two separate scenes while on a boat, fully attired in traditional dhoti outfits.
Speaking about the fusion at the song’s release, KiDi claimed he was inspired by Bollywood films that mixed Afrobeat with Indian classic music.
While this is Tulsi Kumar’s first overseas collaboration, it is KiDi’s first with an Indian artist.
Since it is outside of KiDi’s comfort zone, the video of KiDi performing the Indian dance has caused controversy on social media.
