It’s no longer a shock to hear news about an artist leaving a label they are signed to, to kick start theirs. But the latest artist to join that self owned label league is the ‘Woju’ crooner, Kiss Daniel.
In an exclusive chat with Pulse, Nigerian singer Kiss Daniel has revealed that he is set to leave his record label, G-Worldwide Entertainment. The popular singer says he’s moving on to set up his own label where he’ll continue to function as an artiste and now as a CEO.
All is set for the take-off of “FLY BOY I.N.C” which is my label. This implies that all activities regarding Kiss Daniel will be carried out under this new arrangement.”
The singer who signed to G-Worldwide Entertainment in 2013 and went on to release hit singles such as ‘Woju’, ‘Laye’, ‘Good Time’, and ‘Mama’ further revealed that it is an important move for his career.
This is an important move for me and I sincerely want to thank the fans who have always been there for me and also the media for their constant support.”
Recall, the success of debut album ‘New Era’ released in 2016 led to Kiss Daniel winning three awards at the 2016 Headies, ‘Hip Hop World Revelation’, ‘Best R&B/Pop album’ and ‘Album of the Year’.
Kiss Daniel’s relationship with his label G-Worldwide Entertainment led by Festus Ehimare popularly known as Emperor Geezy raised a few eyebrows.
Although, there have been unconfirmed reports of financial mismanagement in the label which came up in 2015 which reveals the label exerting too much control on Kiss Daniel thereby stifling his growth and influence in the music scene.
However, Kiss Daniel says all is well with G-Worldwide and that he’s grateful to the label for giving him a platform to showcase his talents to the world.
According to him, now was the right time for him to leave G-Worldwide Entertainment after the label had helped him establish himself in the music scene.
“I’ll always appreciate the role G- Worldwide has played so far but it’s time to take this to a whole new level” states the hit singer.
“Expect nothing short of the quality sound you know Kiss Daniel for. This move will only make things better as I look forward to greater years ahead”
Pulse.ng then reached out to G-Worldwide Entertainment for a comment, Louiza Williams who was Kiss Daniel’s manager brought in by the label says “sorry we can’t talk about that right now” on his departure.
