It’s no longer a surprise in the Nigeria music scene when a music act rebels against his own record label, like Runtown and Skales clash Eric Manny and Baseline Records this year. Tho the disputes were resolved it showed flaws in the many policies that Nigerian labels place on their artistes. One of such policies does not allow fast rising music act Kiss Daniel feature on songs from any other person outside his label.
The 2015 Headies Next Rated award nominee made his breakthrough in Nigerian music industry with ‘Woju’ in 2014 under G-Worldwide Entertainment, owned by Emperor Geezy.
‘Woju’ was later remixed with Tiwa Savage and Davido featuring on it
Ever since then however, Kiss Daniel has only featured his label mates, DJ Shabsy and Sugarboy – who’s also the ONLY featured artiste on his debut studio album, New Era, released in May 2016.
At the moment, Kiss Daniel is one of the most talented young artistes in Nigeria and consequently, demands for collaborations with him are high.
His record label contract however still prohibits music collaborations with artistes that aren’t under their label, a very big problem for the ‘Good Time’ singer.
For example, two of Nigeria’s biggest pop stars; Davido and Wizkid survived 2016 with music collaborations.
Davido recorded about 30 collaborations with numerous artistes, while Wizkid had prominent features with global musicians such as Drake, Chris Brown, Tinnie Tempah, Trey Songz, French Montana, DJ Maphorisa, Emtee and Justine Skye.
The budding chap has a bright future ahead of him but the lack of external experience with top music act might see his career trailing. Such thoughts and little whispers from close acquaintances might bring the rebel out of the ‘Alone’ singer.
