His signature brand of brilliant, bold, high energy entertainment has won him an ever-growing international fanbase.
A tri-lingual star, Kadi has gathered a massive profile right across Africa, connecting with audiences through comedy, music, and travel. Notable achievements include creating and producing his own travel show which aired on Vox Africa in the UK, with the personal mandate of educating the African diaspora and showcasing cultures and destinations across the Continent. Kadi also curated and hosted PANAFROLINK, a PanAfrican global conversation platform in New York City, alongside NBA superstar Luol Deng, with guests including Ambassador Shabazz (Malcolm X’s daughter) and actor Damson Idris.

In 2021 he was named as the host of BBC 1 XTRA’S very first weekly Afrobeats show and hosted The Mobo Awards for YouTube.
