G-WorldWide Vows To Go To Court To Stop Kizz Daniel's December 26 Concert
The estranged record label of Kizz Daniel, G-Worldwide Entertainment (GWW), has vowed to frustrate the concert of the artiste slated for December 26 at the Eko Convention Centre, Lagos.
They disclosed this in Lagos on Friday through their lawyer, Olisa Agbakoba (SAN).
Addressing journalists, Agbakoba vowed they were going to pursue the case instituted against Kizz Daniel.
He said the move was to restore “faith” in contractual agreements in Nigeria’s entertainment industry.
According to him, Kizz Daniel whose real name is Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe breached ‘a mandatory buy-out clause’ and infringed on the intellectual property rights of GWW.
Agbakoba said Kizz Daniel signed a seven-year contract with G-Worldwide Entertainment on April 15, 2014. However, in November 2017, the artiste left the label and founded his own label, Fly Boy Inc. In May 2018, he changed his name from Kiss Daniel to Kizz Daniel.
The move prompted G-Worldwide to drag Kizz Daniel to court, asking for N500m as damages.
Agbakoba also said they were going to file a case to stop Kizz Daniel’s show, ‘Kizz Daniel Live In Concert’, scheduled for Boxing Day at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Lagos.
“We’re going to apply for an injunction to stop the show because he is tied to us. And the matter is in court and the court has to decide.”
Agbakoba however, noted that his client is ready for out-of-court settlement.
