ENTERTAINMENT: Kiss Daniel’s Former Manager Advice Him To Quit His Attempt To Dodge The Court

ENTERTAINMENT: Kiss Daniel’s Former Manager Advice Him To Quit His Attempt To Dodge The 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.”

ENTERTAINMENT: G-Worldwide releases Court Declaration in Case against Kiss Daniel

ENTERTAINMENT: G-Worldwide releases Court Declaration in Case against Kiss Daniel

G-Worldwide Entertainment has made available to Pulse the court declaration in its case against singer Kiss Daniel.
It had been revealed on Tuesday that G-Worldwide had dragged Kiss Daniel to court for “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 signed by the artist’s lawyer T. Oluawaseye Lawal of L & A Legal Consultants, it was stated that the court refused to grant any injunction against Kiss Daniel restraining him from recording, performing or using the stage name “Kiss Daniel.”
The statement had also said the status quo as directed by the court was at the date G-Worldwide Entertainment filed its suit, which was after Kiss Daniel had left the label.
The court declaration, as pictured, ordered both parties to “maintain the status quo ante Bellum under the recording contract pending the hearing of the motion on Notice dated the 20/11/2017.”
While Kiss Daniel’s lawyers took this to mean the status quo before the hearing, G-Worldwide, in a statement released alongside the photos of the court declaration, has said it translates to the status quo dating back to the recording contract.

ENTERTAINMENT: Like Harrysong, Brymo, Kiss Daniel in label war

The decision of pop singer, Kiss Daniel, to leave G-Worldwide Entertainment label has stirred up a controversy as the company says it has sued him for an alleged contract breach.
But the artiste’s camp said on Tuesday that it had not received any legal notice from G-Worldwide.
The relationship that started in 2013 yielded considerable success for both sides but it seems to be enmeshed in bad blood, the type of which several Nigerian musicians have experienced in recent years.
Artistes that include Harrysong, Jay One and Braimoh have at one time or the other been involved in tussles with their erstwhile squabbels at the time they wanted to leave.
Asa also has a story to tell in this regard.
A statement from the G-Worldwide Label read,
“The attention of G-Worldwide Entertainment Limited has been drawn to acts by Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe (alias ‘Kiss Daniel’), who recently has been making publications in different print media and on social media platforms soliciting for bookings to perform songs from his album New Era and Evolution. Mr. Anidugbe executed a seven-year recording and artiste management contract with the company in 2013, which is still subsisting.
“Contrary to the express provisions of the contract, 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 albums, which is set to be released soon containing singles such as Yeba, For You, Senorita and Sofa, both produced under the contract, including using the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ without the company’s prior consent and permission.”
G-Worldwide added that it had approached the Federal High Court, Lagos, in suit no. FHC/L/CS/1758/2017 to affirm its rights over the intellectual property under the contract.
It said, “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, restraining 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.”
While Daniel is said to be currently operating on the platform of Flyboy International, his team, as of Tuesday evening, was said to have insisted that it had not received any letter or court papers to that effect.
Daniel has, however, given an indication that there is a battle, as he noted on his Instagram page, ‘Oluwatobiloba Daniel Dhikrullah Anidugbe, this is gonna be a sweet victory for you, young man.”
