As a brand, we are driven by a similar attitude, hence, find it key to shine the light on such stories, so other young men and women can draw from these testimonies in the pursuit of their own goals”, says Editor Gabriel Myers Hansen about the free digital.
The maiden issue of the 20-pager features beloved singer KiDi (born Dennis Nana Dwamena) of Lynx Entertainment, and sees him discuss “love, music, plus chao things”.
24, the MTN Hitmaker alumnus reminisces childhood stories which have shaped his awareness of the concept, the art of writing a love song, how his new found fame is reshaping his outlook of life and love, his mother’s role in his perceptions of affection, as well as how he navigates the labels “love symbol” and “sex symbol”.
KiDi also touches on the idea of soul mates, disputing the popularly -held notion that we are allocated a single soul mate each in our lives. Citing people who rediscover love after losing their partner to, say, death, he submits that we meet different soul mates at various points in life: “there are so many soul mates. It’s all about who comes into your life first…that’s how I see it”.
