Kiss Daniel’s Former Manager Advice Him To Quit Attempt To Dodge Court



The clash between Kiss Daniel and his
former label, G-worldwide has been a
major topic since the news of his exit broke
out.

The story has taken an ugly turn with
reports that the singer has been dragged to
court, a report the singer has denied
through his counsel. The conflicting tales
has kept the general public in the dark.
To clear up grey areas, Punch NG
interviewed the singer’s former manager,
Louiza Williams. She opened up on the
circumstances surrounding the court case
and the possible consequence on Kiss
Daniel’s brand.

“It is not true that he is unaware of the
court order. Court officials went to his
house to serve him the documents but he
avoided them. When he was told by his
gateman that he had visitors, he said he was
coming out to see them. But when he
discovered they were from the court, he
refused to come out, and rather sent
someone to collect the papers on his behalf.

Meanwhile, the court official had been
specifically instructed to make sure the
documents were received by Kiss Daniel
himself. Kiss managed to dodge receiving
the court papers; probably because he was
afraid he would be arrested. They are trying
to do damage control and cause confusion
to divert attention from the real issue. How
can the Federal High Court lie? I would just
advise them to respond to the court suit,
and on January 9, 2018, Kiss Daniel has to
be in court for the hearing,” she said.

Speaking further, she said “he had been
taking bookings from behind but because of
the court orders that we made public, most
of the clients are now panicking. They have
been putting pressure on him to refund
their monies. Many of them have also been
calling us.”

About the consequence if Kiss Daniel ignored the
court order and continued putting out
records and performing at shows. Williams
said, “Even if he goes ahead to release an
album or fails to maintain the status quo
like the court ordered, we wouldn’t take
laws into our hands. But that would be
against the court order and you know what
that means. We would only need to provide
a proof that he indeed disobeyed the court’s
order.”

Louiza Williams also spoke on the claim of
G-worldwide on the name ‘Kiss Daniel’, she
said, “I cannot really speak on the origin of
the name but what matters is the contract
he signed.

 Personally, I don’t like reading
artistes’ contracts because I believe it is
between the individual, their lawyers and
the record label. I don’t like to be privy to
the contracts because I am not a biased
person. Irrespective of the relationship
between me and the artiste, once I notice
that there is a breach of contract, I would
speak out.

However, I am sure that
whatever the label is doing now is based on
the contract that was signed between both
parties. If he did not sign away the right to
whatever name, then the label wouldn’t ask
him to stop using it. Though I have been
told he actually signed something to that
effect.”
