share on:

Good Morning!!

On today’s episode, I enjoyed the company of one of the most in-demand producers at the moment, former US-based beat-master, KidKonnect.

Wana: ‘Morning bruv!
Kidkonnect: Good morning, how goes it?

Wana: It goes extremely well.ย How’s you?
Kidkonnect: Busy with projects, so can’t complain.

Wana: Hmmm… Seems you’re highly in demand… Hustle is paying off ๐Ÿ˜€
Kidkonnect: Slowly, but surely my man.

Wana: Amen!!!ย So what’s your full name?
Kidkonnect: Olakunle Olumide Oluwadiya

Wana: So you’re yoruba? :O
Used to think you were Hausa… Don’t ask me why ๐Ÿ˜
Kidkonnect: 100% Ekiti man…
Loooool that’s a first.

Wana: Ekiti… So you eat dogs?
Kidkonnect: Yes… Your relations taught us… We are forever grateful ๐Ÿ™‚ (Y)

So where did the name Kid Konnect come from?
Kidkonnect: Lool… Honestly, I’m not sure. I used to go by a lot of wack names before like DJ Magic, Skorch Patternz, Flipa…

Wana: DJ Magic? LOOOL… Doesn’t sound bad… DJ Juju will have been sick though ๐Ÿ˜€
Kidkonnect: Then one day, I was taking a shit and the name “Kid Konnect” just popped outta nowhere.
As soon as I flushed, I checked on the net to see if anybody else had the name and nobody did, so it stuck.

Wana: Ah… Toilet inspiration is always the best.
Kidkonnect: Lol

Wana: I used to think you ran an underground child prostitution ring were you connected small kids to rich old men.
Kidkonnect: Why do you keep confusing me with yourself? ๐Ÿ˜

Wana: LOOOOOOOOL…. Nah man… What’s your date of birth?
Kidkonnect: Dec 15th 1980something

Wana: Small pikin ๐Ÿ˜
Why production? Why not be an artiste yourself?
Kidkonnect: I actually started out as a rapper… Not a very good one though lol.
But I’d make my own beats and people would prefer that to my rapping so I stuck with it.

Wana: So you feel it’s easier to produce beats than to write lyrics?
Kidkonnect: Nah… People don’t give good songwriters enough credit… It’s not easy!
But for me, production is much easier… It comes natural to me.

Wana: What was your first major production?
Kidkonnect: Hmmm… It would have to be “Spray Me Money” by former Trybe records artist OlaDELe back in 2007.

Wana: Wow. You’ve been active for that long? Woooow.
Kidkonnect: Yeah… I officially made production my career in 2008.

Wana: Hmm. So in all these years, who’s the best artiste you’ve worked with?
Kidkonnect: Haaa… I don’t have a best to be honest…. I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of dope acts, so I’m just thankful for that.

Wana: Well, I’m still digging The Bandits EP…. Kahli Abdu is a beast. Nigga gat promise.
Kidkonnect: Kahli is definitely one of my favorites emcees of all time.

Wana: What’s your relationship status?
Kidkonnect: In a relationship with my iMac.

Wana: Hahahahaha… Your iMac is your other half?
You’re lonely bro ๐Ÿ™
Kidkonnect: Yep ๐Ÿ™

Wana: Why though? No woman fine enough?
Kidkonnect: Ahh No ooh… Lagos is filled with fine babes… I’m just not in a relationship with any of them.

Wana: How sad ๐Ÿ™ … Me I’m in a relationship with like 7 girls… #AsABoss ๐Ÿ˜€
Kidkonnect: Do the girls know?

Wana: They don’t ๐Ÿ™
What do you use as inspiration/motivation before you get to work?
Kidkonnect: I use any and everything…
But I’m always inspired by pictures
