Kiss Daniel Dragged To Court By Former Label G-Worldwide For Breaching A 7-Year Contract He Signed

Nigerian pop star, Anidugbe Oluwatobiloba Daniel, popularly known as Kiss Daniel, has been dragged to court by the management of G-Worldwide Entertainment, for allegedly breaching the seven years artiste management deal he signed with the record label in 2013.





A statement from the Label read;


“The attention of G-Worldwide Entertainment Limited (‘the Company’) has been drawn to acts by Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe (alias ‘Kiss Daniel’), who recently has been making publications on different print media and social media platforms soliciting for bookings to perform songs from his album NEW ERA and EVOLUTION. Mr. Anidugbe executed a 7-year Recording and Artist Management Contract (’the Contract’) with the Company in 2013 and which Contract is still subsisting.


“Contrary to the express provisions of the Contract, Mr. Anidugbe has taken steps to appoint a new manager, solicited for bookings, and has continued to negotiate and enter performance agreements in respect of the songs from the album NEW ERA, and EVOLUTION which is set to be released soon containing singles such as YEBA, FOR YOU, SENORITA, SOFA and others, both produced under the Contract, including using the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ without the Company’s prior consent and permission.

Further thereto, the Company has approached the Federal High Court, Lagos in suit no. FHC/L/CS/1758/2017 between G-WORLDWIDE ENT. LIMITED Vs OLUWATOBILOBA DANIEL ANIDUGBE to affirm its rights over the intellectual property under the Contract i.e. copyrights over the songs in both albums, and rights over the stage name: ‘Kiss Daniel’.

By an application dated 20th November 2017, the Company sought interim orders of injunction, and other further orders as the Court may deem fit to make, against Mr. Anidugbe, retraining the Artiste’s further distribution, publication, or performance of these songs, or negotiating or entering any agreement thereof without the consent or permission of G-Worldwide Entertainment Ltd.

The general public and the whole world is hereby put on notice that on the 30th day of November 2017, the Federal High Court made an order that status quo ante bellum under the Contract, be maintained by the parties, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice filed in the suit.

The import of the Order being that the state under which the parties existed under the Contract should be preserved until the Court makes a determination of the motion on notice filed by the Company. All and any dealings in respect of the upload, distribution, and or performance of any of the songs, as well as the use or exploitation of the name ‘Kiss Daniel’ can therefore only be entered or made with the prior written consent and permission of the Company as provided under the Contract.

The general public and the whole world is further cautioned that as the matter is now before a Court of law (subjudice), and following the Order to maintain status quo, any unauthorized upload, distribution, exploitation, performance, sales, and use of the songs (from the NEW ERA and EVOLUTION albums), or stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’, in any show, event, downloading or streaming platform, will be in violation of the Order of the Federal High Court.

Anyone who does or continues to do so shall be liable as an accomplice for contempt of court, and the full weight of the law will be brought against that person as a contemnor.

Any person or organization who negotiates, or enters into any agreement with Mr. Anidugbe to engage him on the basis of his presumed rights over the songs in both albums, or the use of the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’, does so at his or her own risk and peril.”

However, as at the time of this report, efforts to reach Kiss Daniel have been futile as he is said to be very busy consolidating plans for his new label, FLYBOI INC.

Ah ha! They hardly part ways amicably but I like what the industry is turning into particularly with respect to the protection of terms of contracts and intellectual properties.
They'll find a common ground after all. Similar threats were issued when Harry Song walked out on Five Star Music but eventually all parties appear to have found a need to move on.

Another Libyan Contract...

Pipi they cannot let him be. It's called a contract for a reason. When you ask all these artistes to read or at least get a lawyer they won't hear. They jump at the money,house and cars and mortgage their futures in the process. Let him face it and pay for damages. Young people of Nigeria, READ!!

Emperor whatever, that boy made u popular. Alot of people that were not in d entertainment industry did not know u guys until he came along. Now instead of u to use the fame wisely, u want to continue to terrorize him. If it was about you, y didn't other artists in your employ blow like him?!
This move will blacklist you guys from good upcoming artists radar. .. And oo u probably have d law behind u, but u can't win because Nigerians are behind kiiss Daniel. I added an extra I to show u how easy it is to retain his name. Monkey dey work, baboon wan continue to chop. Ko le werk!

No, because of them he became popular. They invested in him, so he should fulfil his contract. It is a lawful agreement and when it is breached, there are consequences.
