Kizz Daniel’s case with G-Worldwide still in court, says former manager.
When Kizz Daniel changed his success name – Kiss Daniel – last week, we thought it was all over between the singer and his former record label G-Worldwide following reports that he’d won their court case in March. Daniel’s former manager, Louiza Williams, has come out to say the name change is ‘no big deal’ as both parties are expected in court next month. “The next court date is June 26. It is not true that the case has been settled; so, I don’t know where all those reports came from. If there was anything like that, I would be aware of it,” said Louiza.
In the court documents G-Worldwide filed against Kiss Daniel in December, the company claimed the singer breached a seven-year artiste management deal that he signed with them in 2013. The record label stated that Daniel breached the deal with series of actions that include appointing a new manager, and using the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ without seeking the label’s permission, contrary to the provisions of the contract. Louiza adds: “Though Kizz Daniel doesn’t come to court personally, his lawyers appear on his behalf and I am sure they pass relevant information across to him accordingly. The court ruled that both parties should maintain the status quo, but Kizz Daniel is doing what is best known to him, which is contrary to what the court ordered.” Daniel has continued with the transformation of his brand having announced his personal record label, Flyboy Inc. in November 2017. The “Woju” hitmaker has also landed collaborations with Wizkid, Seyi Shay, CDQ, Omawumi and more in a short time.
