Why G-Worldwide Begs Public, “Avoid Kiss Daniel For Your Shows”

Image result for Kiss DanielThe battle between G-worldwide and Kiss Daniel is far from being over as the former management releases new statement Kiss Daniel countering everything Kiss Daniel’s last statement claims.

This new statement gives a detailed account of Kiss Daniel’s work ethics, his father’s burial, collaborations with other artistes and the amount paid to the artiste which is contrary to the 30,000 which has been initially stated was being paid to Kiss Daniel.

Concluding the statement, the label stated that if Kiss Daniel still wishes to leave the label, he has to complete his own end of the bargain which has been explicitly stated below.

“There has been a lot of misinformation in the media as to the background of Kiss Daniel’s wrongful exit from G-Worldwide Entertainment. The management of G-Worldwide Entertainment wishes to state it had never been its intention to seek legal redress, nor join issues with an artiste who we fear is being given bad legal advice. However we feel it is important that we set the records straight for the benefit of the general public and others who are interested in knowing the truth.

Firstly, we would like to reiterate that our organization’s sole mission is to scout, develop and promote artistes till the point where both partners become profitable and the artiste can then decide to continue their creative journey as they deem fit. Contrary to widespread insinuations (and though we love a good joke) we are not a slave camp and we have no time whatsoever held any of the talents on our roster against their will.

The issue of restrictions on collaboration by our artistes is one which has been well flogged and one we will address immediately. Our management policy is unique in that we look for innovative ways to position our artistes to build and own their own sounds and brands before seeking to enter collaborations with artistes from other labels. To this end, we have trained and developed our artistes in a way that ensures that their first albums are well composed and delivered in way that gives them the platform to sell their art as strong individual brands. This strategy is not without its results as is evidenced from Kiss Daniel’s debut album “New Era” receiving much positive reviews and landing the 8th place on the Billboard’s World Album Chart within a week of release. The Nigerian music industry is very competitive, and as such it is pertinent that players in the market develop unique strategies to break in and remain relevant.

The New Era album of Kiss Daniel therefore only contained collaborative efforts with his label mate Sugarboy. However, on the soon to be released album ‘Evolution’ by Kiss Daniel, we have worked with other talents such as Phyno and Olamide. Sugarboy has also collaborated with Y-Cee on a song due to be released in January 2018.

There have also been issues raised that the company has not made available its books of accounts to Kiss Daniel, leading to him filing an action at the Lagos State High Court seeking an order granting him access to the books of the company. Whilst our lawyers have filed the necessary papers to strike out the suit, it is pertinent that we briefly note that at no time have we denied the artiste or his lawyers access to our books. With the facts we have, we believe that the suit was a ploy to misdirect the public away from his untimely and unlawful exit from the company. The label has records of email correspondence with Kiss Daniel where he and his representatives at different times requested for books of the company and same were supplied to them. All these have been placed before the court in response to the suit filed by the artiste at the Lagos State High Court. Until now they are yet to respond to papers filed challenging the competence of that suit. Sadly too, even though Kiss complained about access, in another breath he has admitted the audits held between his accountants and the label’s accountant.

Apart from the above, there have been rumors that Kiss Daniel was on a monthly stipend of (NGN 50,000). Everyone knows that such amount of money cannot get a decent apartment to live in Lagos. Kiss Daniel, contrary to that rumor, has received substantial allowances over the last two and half years. Kiss Daniel was offered a 360 deal in 2013, and the terms of his initial contract has been reviewed twice in his favor, whilst the company has had to bankroll obligations relating to advertisements, promotions, music production, videos, trips, wardrobe at different times, etc. Indeed, the company has been quite flexible with our remuneration policies with the belief that he will be able to build a solid financial base for himself. For the avoidance of doubt the following are some details of how the label catered for his financial needs as well as his personal welfare:

1. Contrary to rumors making the rounds that Kiss Daniel was only on a NGN 30,000 salary since he joined the label up until after the release of Woju and Laye singles, this is nothing but falsehood. Before the release of those singles in 2014, Kiss Daniel was put on a monthly allowance of NGN 30,000 whilst he was still in his father’s house in Kuto, Abeokuta, medical allowance of NGN 150,000 and other unrecorded stipends whilst no revenue was being generated by him. This remained the norm while the label invested in recording sessions, productions, transportation, and other costs associated with developing him as an artist.

2. Loans of up to NGN 550,000 was given to him within 2 weeks of his signing onto the label for him to get a car for his mom to start a Taxi business. There are documents to back this. In addition following his request for financial support for his dad’s burial, G-Worldwide released the sum of NGN 200,000 which was exactly what Kiss Daniel requested for. As recent as October 2017, he again requested for a loan to run his account in order to acquire a house for himself under a mortgage, to this end the company released NGN 13,000,000 (Thirteen Million Naira) to him though the company was not obligated under the contract to do so.

3. As per the contract between Kiss Daniel and G-Worldwide, the label was meant to recoup its investment before any royalty sharing was to commence; the only provision available for the artiste was allowances and loans which was at the discretion of the label. In June 2015 following his return from UK tour, the company amended the contract and immediately began the payment of royalties as agreed and from that time till the wrongful termination of his contract, G-Worldwide has paid Kiss Daniel the sum of NGN 117,233,318 (One Hundred and Seventeen Million, Two Hundred Thirty Three Thousand and Three Hundred and Eighteen Naira) as royalties from performances alone, he has also received money from other incomes to the sum of NGN 3,296,826.40 (Three Million, Two Hundred and Ninety Six Thousand Eight Hundred and Twenty Six Naira and forty kobo) for the financial record of 2016 as opposed to the false allegations made by him and his lawyers (The company’s books of account support this) As it stands, Kiss Daniel owes G-Worldwide Entertainment quite a large sum of money for the financial year due to end in 2018.

4. Following the signing of the contract in 2013, Kiss Daniel moved into an apartment furnished by the label in April 2014 in Lekki Lagos and only moved out in October 2015. Despite the terrible picture painted by Kiss Daniel to the media, the label actually during that period undertook the payment of all the bills in the said apartment, including waste, power, service charges, feeding, etc.

5. We have also noted the falsehood that at the time of his father’s demise, the label barred him from attending the burial. Let it be on record that immediately the news of his father’s demise filtered in, Emperor Geezy, CEO of the label authorized that his own personal car be used to convey Kiss Daniel to Abeokuta to attend and be a part of his father’s burial and he only requested for a two days leave to spend time with his family and NGN 200,000 to send across to his family people who had to put the dad to the ground immediately and needed an urgent burial and he was bitterly angry and ranting that imagine none of his family members could come up with NGN 10,000 to support his dad’s burial. The company was open to giving him more money but he said the NGN 200,000 will be okay to take care of everything being the fact that the dad was a Muslim and much is not expected to be done. The label CEO’s brother even accompanied him on this trip back home, as well as one of the label’s staff. Interestingly on arriving at a hotel in Abeokuta which had been fully paid for by the label, he refused to attend his own father’s burial on the grounds that he believed that his family are fetish and is father death is not ordinary with the way he suddenly fell sick and died after going through a lot of pain, and he is scared and will not want to be exposed to any dangers. On the same night of his arrival at the hotel is younger brother was on his way to visit him, sadly we were informed that the brother just got involved in a car accident. The label took care of his brother medical bills in full up to NGN 300,000 and even assigned a staff of the company to stay with him at the hospital for about 8 days to take care of his needs until he was deem fit to be discharged. Kiss Daniel left Abeokuta the next morning for Lagos without attending the burial insinuating the accident suffers by his brother was fromfamiliar persons.Image result for G-Worldwide

6. In response to the claim that Kiss Daniel was barred from supporting other artistes, especially those who supported him and the label at the New Era album launch, we would like to put it on record that at no time has the label barred him from performing at events where friends in the industry have asked for his support. We understand the importance of collaborative efforts in a fledging industry such as ours. Kiss Daniel however has made it a habit to turn up at events late or not at all, always blaming the label for his truancy. Clear examples include his failing to appear at the Reekado Banks album listening party at Hard Rock Café and the recent 2Face’s (2Baba) Buckwyld ‘n’ Breathless Concert on 22nd of October, 2017 at Eko Hotel,. He did this even when 2Baba had provided two separate accommodations for him and his manager Louiza Williams at Eko Hotels, and the label had covered other logistics costs. He stood up 2Baba and manager after claiming he was on his way from 6pm till 1am the next day. He repeated the same show of shame at the Chronicles of Ushebebe and Soundcity’s 2016 MVP Awards. His excuse always being that the label has restricted him from supporting other talents in the industry. His favorite saying: “You know I’m signed to a label na, I’m not my own boss yet”. One should wonder why his manager would be at these venues to liaise with the event organizers before his arrival, if he wasn’t approved by the label to be at those events mentioned above. His usual play was to ask the manager if money is involved and once she says “no we are going to support” he will either not take his calls once she’s around his house for takeoff, or switch off his phones and later complain that he was not feeling too well or had an urgent meeting at Abeokuta.

Last year, many people wondered how we managed to pull off such a massive concert for his New Era album launch with no support from any organization. That event which included the lease of the prestigious Eko Hotels with over 20 superstars was one of the most expensive projects the company ever embarked upon.

Nevertheless, we understand that artistes grow with their songs and popularity, and may eventually seek an early exit. That being said, a contract between two parties is a legally binding arrangement and both parties having deployed resources to perform obligations thereunder, the contract has to be executed in line with its terms and conditions.

G-Worldwide’s contract with Kiss Daniel simply put, allows for the artiste to exit, but in so doing, he is duty bound to repay to the company all monies expended by the company in furtherance of the contract and all losses including losses suffered from cancellation of fixed events and shows by reason of the termination. The contract is also expressly clear on the fact that intellectual property rights to all the songs produced under the contract including the stage name of the artiste are properties of the company. We know that so far, Kiss Daniel has kept these facts away from the public; choosing to resort to cheap blackmail and whipping up emotions. We will not take this route as a responsible company and this is why we are in court.

We have done our best not to harp on the history of his recalcitrance. Nevertheless, we keep being harassed by different lawyers (his present lawyer is the fourth) with outrageous demands, but we have retained the opinion that some terms cannot be imposed on us. Most recently in October, he had demanded, going forward, a 100% of revenues from his performances and endorsements even while he understands his level of indebtedness to us and the terms of the contracts. When he was referred to the contract terms, his response was to serve us a termination notice without even following the stipulations for termination under the contract. He thereafter announced his personal record label in less than nine (9) days after the undue notice and has since been soliciting bookings and infringing on G-Worldwide intellectual property rights by performing songs from the ‘New Era’ album and the yet to be released ‘Evolution’ album. This is the reason for the restraining order of status quo issued by the Federal High Court on the 30th November 2017.

Law abiding organizations and business concerns have either contacted us for clarity, which we have provided through our solicitors, Calmhill Partners. Other well advised entities have in support of the rule of law and sanctity of contracts, terminated their engagement with him or removed him from performance schedules. The Nigerian musical industry we believe will learn and grow from this incidence.

We have put everyone who wishes to contract Kiss Daniel on notice and advise that you should not allow yourselves be misinformed about the subject matter or be swayed by his misrepresentations or lack of capacity to perform some of the songs that he has been contracted to perform. Whilst we look forward to a speedy dispensation of justice in the matter before the Court, we reiterate our advice that event organizers should consult their lawyers to avoid being complicit in the offence of acting in contempt of court.
It remains illegal to deal with Kiss Daniel directly instead of G-Worldwide Management pending the hearing of the suit in Court.”

Trending: Kiss Daniel legally terminated his contract after it was breached severally by the label’ – Singer’s lawyer reveals shocking details

Image result for kiss danielAs the case between Nigerian singer, Kiss Daniel and his label G-Worldwide lingers on.

The LIB revealed more shocking details about Daniel’s  contract and the clause activated by the singer before the contract was terminated.

According to Kiss Daniel’s lawyers ‘L & A Legal consultants’, 

Kiss Daniel did not walk out of his contract. He only terminated it as he is permitted to do under the contract. Is it now a sin for a party to exercise a right expressly conferred on him by law/contract? Is it the fault of Kiss Daniel that the contract has a termination clause that allows Kiss Daniel to terminate the contract? We should bear in mind that the contract was drafted by G-Worldwide Entertainment. Kiss Daniel scrupulously followed the provision of the contract. It is unfortunate that people are mixing this case up with that of other artists running away from a contract they signed. No! This is different. This is a case of an Artist insisting that the contract signed by the parties must be obeyed and enforced. Kiss Daniel is firm believer in rule of law and due process. This was why it was Kiss Daniel that went to court first. People should not confuse a case of properly terminated contract with cases of ill-advised artists who angrily walked out of their contract without following the laid down procedure under their contracts. Kiss Daniel’s case is a well thought out act. It is an exercise of right granted to him by the contract between him and his label. What do people want from Nigerian artist? If they don’t employ lawyers, people criticize them. Now that Kiss Daniel has employed one of the best I.P. law firm in Nigeria with a Professor of I.P. and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), people are still calling him names for acting in accordance with his contract! When Artist don’t obey or assert their rights under their contracts, people abused them, yet the same people are abusing Kiss Daniel for obeying and enforcing the Termination Clause provided in his contract! Na wa o. This is not a Kiss Daniel’s fight alone. This is a fight for all Nigerian artists except we are saying only artists must obey and comply with contract but record label are free to do as they wish?

 

Finance:

Why is G-Worldwide afraid to grant Kiss Daniel unrestricted access to his account and books as provided by the contract? The whole relationship between a record label and an artist is about making money and sharing it. Finance and money is the crux of the matter. G-Worldwide did not sign Kiss Daniel because they love his face. They signed him because they think he can make money for them. And there is nothing wrong with that as long as they play by the rules. The only offence commented by Kiss Daniel was his effrontery/impudence by daring to ask his record label to render account! Kiss Daniel through his lawyer L & A – Legal Consultant appointed a firm of Chartered Accountant to inspect and audit G-Worldwide Entertainments books and account in respect of Kiss Daniel’s project as provided by the contract between the parties. Immediately the request was made, all hell was let loose. Why will a Record Label be afraid to allow their Artist to inspect their books of record? Especially, when the contract between the parties was drafted by the same record label and the contract contains a clause which specifically provided that the Record Label shall keep all accounts and shall allow the Artist or his representative unrestricted access to inspect and make copies of the records. See clause 7 of the contract between the parties which provide;

“Company shall maintain proper accounting books and or records at its principal office, in relation to revenue generated, or expenditure expended in the course of the performance of this Agreement. Such books and or records shall include, but shall not be limited to, any documents or records which evidence the receipt and or disbursements of royalties and other monies generated in the course of the performance of the Agreement. 

The Artist shall, at any time during the term of this Agreement and upon prior written notice to Company, Artist or his/her designated representative shall gain unrestricted access to inspect the books and records of the Company relating to this Agreement and shall be entitled to make copies thereof.”

Based on above, Kiss Daniel’s lawyer wrote to G-Worldwide on the 18th of July 2017 saying thus:

“This is to inform you that in accordance with the Recording Contract between the parties, our client wishes to send his Accountants (WYZE Associates) to inspect/audit his accounts with your client.

Kindly confirm your convenient date from next week when the Accountants can come in for the inspection/audit.”

Of course they failed/refused to respond to the above email and only responded on the 25th of July 2017 (after several reminders) saying: saying:

“I somehow missed your initial email. Apologies. I will discuss your request with my client and will revert with a response before CoB tomorrow.”

As usual, they failed to respond on the 26th of July 2017 as promised and Kiss Daniel’s lawyers had to send another reminder by way of email and telephone call before they finally responded on the 1st of August 2017 saying:

“Regarding the date for the “audit”, can we agree on a date in late August or early September? An earlier date will not be ideal- Emperor Geezy is getting married on Saturday and will be unavailable for some time after the wedding (for obvious reasons).”

And Kiss Daniel’s lawyers responded by saying:

“It is our understanding that we are dealing with a company (G-World Entertainment Ltd) and not an individual. Therefore, the unavailability of Emperor Geezy would not affect the audit. Please note that the audit will only involve G World Accountants and our Accountants. Therefore, the presence of Emperor Geezy is not very important at this stage. In view of the above, we can schedule the audit to an earlier date. Kindly confirm when our Accountants can come for the audit within this week or next week.”

Is G-worldwide Entertainment Limited a proper record label? Is it a proper limited liability company? Or is it merely a one man show without corporate structure, office and supporting staff? Can anybody name the A & R officer of G-worldwide Entertainment Limited?

Anyway, G-worldwide Entertainments Limited responded by creating a new excuse when they stated thus in their email of 4th of August 2017:

“While the company is happy to assist your client’s accountants with their audit request, unfortunately due to ongoing activities involving the relevant company’s personnel, the time proposed by you will not be convenient for the company (whose assistance you require to carry out the audit).

In the circumstance, we suggest that we should agree on a day in the last week of August for the audit exercise. We will wait for you to propose a specific date during the said period for the audit.”

Even though it was clear to Kiss Daniel and his team that G-worldwide Entertainments Limited was trying to frustrate the inspection/audit, they went ahead to conceded to the end of the month proposed by G-worldwide Entertainments Limited and sent them a mail on the on the  7th of August 2017 saying:

“Our accountants will be available on 28th and 29th August 2017 for the audit. Kindly confirm that the dates. Also confirm your client’s address.”

Again, G-worldwide Entertainments Limited failed/refused to confirm the dates for the inspection or the venue as requested and after several reminders they only on the 28th of August 2017, which is one of the dates fixed for the inspection and agreed to the 29th of August 2017 for the said inspection/audit. Thereby giving Kiss Daniel and his team less than 24 hours’ notice and which means the audit can only be done in one day instead of two dates proposed. Of course, any experience person knows that such audit can hardly be completed in one day. It was all a grand design to frustrate the audit.

Unfortunately, when the inspection/audit finally held, Kiss Daniel’s Accountant was denied unrestricted access to the “books/records” in clear breach of the unambiguous provisions of clause 7 of the Contract (as posted above). Kiss Daniel’s Accountant were surprised that Label did not come to the venue of the inspection/audit with any physical books, receipts, invoices e.t.c. but only brought a mere laptop! And even refused to allow Kiss Daniel’s Accountant to make a copy of the said “books/records” contrary to the contract. It was also discovered that the representative sent by G-worldwide Entertainment Limited and who brought the laptop is not an accountant and did not know anything about the transactions recorded in the laptop. He could not answer any of the questions/queries posted to him by Kiss Daniel’s Accountant.

Based on the above breaches (failure to allow unrestricted access and to make copies of the books of account as provided in clause 7 of the Record contract), Kiss Daniel’s lawyers gave G-worldwide Entertainment Limited 14 days’ notice to remedy the breach as provided by Clause 16 of the Contract and when they failed to do so within the 14days, the Artist through his lawyer proceeded to terminate the contract as provided in clause 14.2 of the contract, which provides that:

“Either party may terminate this contract by written notice to the other at any time if that other party:

commits a breach of this contract and, in the case of a breach capable of remedy, he fails to remedy the breach within fourteen (14) days of being required to do so in writing.”
Unfortunately, when Kiss Daniel’s lawyer gave G-worldwide Entertainments Limited notice of the breach on 11th and 19th of September 2017, G-worldwide Entertainments Limited failed and refused to cure and remedy the breach within the 14 days allowed by the contract and Kiss Daniel was forced to comply with the contract by terminating it as required by the contract.

 

This termination therefore was not only in obedience to law and the contract between the parties but was also a self defence by Kiss Daniel to prevent “baboon dey work, monkey dey chop”. Why is G-worldwide Entertainments Limited afraid of rendering accounts? Should Kiss Daniel continue to work under G-worldwide Entertainments Limited and receive whatever was giving to him without allowing his accountant to audit the books? Is it an offence for an artist to enforce the rights granted him by the contract drafted by the Record label? the laywer wrote.

G-Worldwide fires back with more court documents, says The feud between Kiss Daniel and former label, G – Worldwide is getting messier everyday.

It was reported that Kiss Daniel through his lawyers replied his record label who had filed an injunction against him at a Federal High Court. According to Kiss Daniel and his team, they had not been served any letters or court documents.

Why Kiss Daneil was sued to court by G- Worldwide

Image result for kiss daniel and g worldwideNigerian singer, Anidugbe Daniel, aka Kiss Daniel, and his erstwhile record label, G-Worldwide Entertainment have taken their case to court after both parties fell out last month.

Kiss Daniel had left the label and went on to float a new record label, Flyboy Inc, under whose imprint he released his latest single, No Do.

Now his former label, G-Worldwide has dragged him to court, accusing him of “taking steps to appoint a new manager, solicit 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, produced under the contract, including using the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ without the company’s prior consent and permission.”

In a statement by G-Worldwide’s lawyers, Calmhill Partners, it was stated that a Federal High Court in Lagos had on November 30, granted an order that all parties should maintain the status quo under the contract. The company further warned the general public against contracting any business with Kiss Daniel.

The statement read, “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.” 

A copy of the court order signed by Hon. Justice Babs Kuewumi partly reads, “It is hereby ordered as follows that in the interim both parties are ordered to maintain the status quo ante Bellum under the recording contract pending the hearing of the motion on notice.”

The case was adjourned till January 9, 2018.

Meanwhile, the statement by Calmhill Partners, which was signed by Aso Kalu Etea, warned that anyone who conducted business with Kiss Daniel pending the determination of the suit risked being held in contempt of court. It read,

“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 andEvolution 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.”Related image

Reason Kiss Daniel is out of Slave G-Worldwide contract

Image result for kiss danielThe news quickly spread that Nigerian pop singer, Kiss Daniel has left G-Worldwide Entertainment after four years with the record label.

The ‘Yeba’ singer confirmed his exit in a statement, saying he has moved on to set up his own music label FLY BOY I.N.C.

“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” says Kiss Daniel.

“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” he further says.

In the statement, the singer also denied he had a rift with the label who played a major role in helping him to explore in the music scene, adding that he would forever remain grateful to the label led by Festus Ehimare popularly known as Emperor Geezy.

 “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” he says.

Kiss Daniel was signed to G-Worldwide Entertainment in 2013. Under the music label he released hit singles such as ‘Woju’, ‘Laye’, ‘Good Time’, and ‘Mama’ including his debut album ‘New Era’ in 2016.

Following the success of the album, the singer won three awards at the 2016 Headies, ‘Hip Hop World Revelation’, ‘Best R&B/Pop album’ and ‘Album of the Year’.

In the other way round, he criticized the label with their philosophy not to feature any other artiste on his album. It was gathered that lots of people wanted to feature Kiss Daniel on their project, but the label refused. This couldn’t allow the artiste explore his talents to cut across.

It was fight on the slave contract Kiss Daniel signed with the label all because he wanted fame at all cost at the beginning. G-Worldwide gives his token out of any deal that comes. It was really painful when Kiss Daniel confined in a friend that he barely boost of one million naira in his account when Woju and Laye hit songs were the toast of every concert, radio and club houses both within Nigeria and out of our shores.

03 Media Showcases Nigerian Music to the World

It is no news that Nigerian music in recent times has become a global phenomenon. With the crop of new artistes giving their contemporaries a run for their money, certainly has come of age. no one understands this better than 03 Media, a music promotion and event firm. The premium brand is in the business of exporting the best of Nigeria hip hop artistes to the world.

Recently, the firm packaged an European music tour for rising hip hop star, Kiss Daniel.

The tour took Kiss Daniel to Amsterdam in Netherland and 13 other cities across the nation in July. The event recorded huge success as the prodigy shut down the concert with his music, proving that he’s the next big thing to happen to Nigerian music, perhaps after Wizkid.

Kiss Daniel and his team was also hosted on *The Nkechi Late Night Show* on HiRadio in the Netherlands.

Until now, 03 Media, founded by the ace show promoter, Alex Ozone, had packaged successful tours in Europe and beyond for a number of Nigerian artistes like Terry G, Chuddy K, Yq, Jaywon, Oritsefemi, Skales, Tekno and Patoranking, showcasing their music beyond the African continent.
