Kiss Daniel is presently in a legal battle with his former record label, G-Worldwide. While the case is still in court, new disturbing facts have emerged.
LIB gathers that Kiss Daniel was placed on a monthly salary of N30,000 per month all through the success of his hit single, ‘Woju’.
A source who spoke to LIB on condition of anonymity said, “From the beginning of his contract (a 7 years and 5 albums contract), he wasn’t placed on any percentage but on a monthly salary of N30, 000 (thirty thousand naira). When ‘Woju’ remix was released, it was later increased to N50, 000 (fifty thousand naira). He then insisted on a review of his contract in 2015 and by the second quarter of 2015, he began to receive 40% of his performance fees.
It was also learnt that Kiss Daniel, though wasn’t legally barred from collaborations, his record label was against it and made it look like he’s the one avoiding it.
The source said, “Or have you also seen his label mate, Sugarboy, on collaborations? The industry can testify to it, I won’t mention names but we all know. All the superstars who came to support Kiss Daniel at his album listening party, he couldn’t pay back the favour when they needed him because the label prevented him from doing so.
“Basketmouth even had to block him on Instagram because Kiss was supposed to do a show for him, but his label refused and Basketmouth got angry thinking Kiss Daniel was the one playing games with him.”
LIB reported that the source said the relationship between Kiss Daniel and his record label was filled with tension, hate, frustration, and animosity. Kiss Daniel couldn’t even make it to his father’s burial because his label threatened him’.
“On the day of his father’s burial, he already had a show that was booked and his label told him they don’t care about his father’s burial.
“At that time, Kiss Daniel was still on a monthly salary of N50,000 and two days before his father’s death, his kid brother was also involved in an accident that left him unconscious for weeks. The label only gave him N200, 000 to buy ‘coffin and fry puff puff.”
