Recently Lady K-Wida decided she doesn't want to perform anymore. A life in the spotlight isn't it for her. We are very sorry about this because she has such a good voice, and we have reached so far during our cooperation of almost 2 years!
In the early morning of July 28 2007, Lady K-Wida, Osagyefo (Ghana) and Poor Man Friend performed live and direct on Dutch National radio at Radio 3FM! Check out 'One Man Woman' live on 3FM Radio.
