On December 13, 2019, Nigerian Lawyer, Olisa Agbakoba (SAN) informed members of the press that Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel will not perform at his December 26, 2019 concert. His reason is that the artist’s ‘brand’ still belongs to his former label, G Worldwide.
Agbakoba was speaking in his capacity as a legal representative of G Worldwide, the label that was home to Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel. Although Kizz Daniel now releases music under his own label, Flyboy Inc., but has pending matter at the High Court to determine the state of his contract with G Worldwide.
When Olisa Agbakoba spoke, he says his client wants to make an example of Kizz Daniel to artists who want to breach the terms of their record contracts. He says, “The press conference is to call attention to the fact that artistes or labels think they can do what they like, it’ll have to stop and Kizz Daniel represents the living example of how the rules of the industry are not being followed.
“We have to stop it… We are going to apply for an injunction to stop the show because he is tied to us and the matter is in court and if it is in court, the court has to decide. So we’re going to ask the court to stop the show.
“Next year we’re going to take the strongest possible measures against Kizz Daniel until he comes back and repent and pays us what he owes us. “
