This year alone, we’ve seen Runtown, Skales, and DJ Zeez have disputes with their record labels, and one has to be afraid for Kiss Daniel’s future with his management.

The 2015 Headies Next Rated award nominee made his breakthrough in Nigerian music industry with ‘Woju’ in 2014 under G-Worldwide Entertainment, owned by Emperor Geezy.

‘Woju’ was later remixed with Tiwa Savage and Davido featuring on it

Ever since then however, Kiss Daniel has only featured his label mates, DJ Shabsy and Sugarboy – who’s also the ONLY featured artiste on his debut studio album, New Era, released in May 2016.

At the moment, Kiss Daniel is one of the most talented young artistes in Nigeria and consequently, demands for collaborations with him are high.

His record label contract however still prohibits music collaborations with artistes that aren’t under their label, a very big problem for the ‘Good Time’ singer.

For example, two of Nigeria’s biggest pop stars; Davido and Wizkid survived 2016 with music collaborations.

Davido recorded about 30 collaborations with numerous artistes, while Wizkid had prominent features with global musicians such as Drake, Chris Brown, Tinnie Tempah, Trey Songz, French Montana, DJ Maphorisa, Emtee and Justine Skye.

Collaborations are opportunities for shows, endorsements, awards, music influence and more.

Look at Wizkid who nabbed his first ever Grammy nomination for his feature and production credit on Drake’s Views album.

Asides that, Kiss Daniel barely gets invites to some of the biggest shows in the country, because his booking fee is expensive.

He’s also not allowed to perform at charity events organised by his colleagues.

The singer is not even allowed to disclose his age publicly!

We urge G-Worldwide Entertainment to review this contract so that we won’t see another talented musician’s career go off balance.
