Contract breach: Who is saying the truth, G-worldwide or Kiss Daniel?

Over the years, artistes and record labels’ feuds have gradually become part of the dynamics associated with the music industry the world over, and Nigeria is not left out.

In fact, in the history of the Nigerian music industry, hardly is there any subsisting record label not guilty of this trend. From Choc City vs. Brymo, Harrysong vs. Five Star Music, Emma Nyra vs. MMMG, Runtown vs. Ericmany Records, Chidinma vs. Capital Hills, and recently Skibii vs. Five Star Music, among many others.

So, it was not much of breaking news when news headlines went viral with reports that G-Worldwide Entertainment had dragged one of its legally signed artistes, Kiss Daniel to court for breaching the seven-year recording and artiste management contract he signed with the company in 2013.

But in defence, Kiss Daniel, who had earlier announced his exit from G-Worldwide with the launch of his own label imprint, FLYBOI I.N.C, denied all allegations leveled against him, claiming that he had since terminated his contract with G-Worldwide since October 30, 2017, a claim the label has since debunked as a lie.

Recall that on Tuesday, December 5, 2017, the management of G-Worldwide released an official statement indicting Kiss Daniel of breaching the contract he signed with the label by illegally floating an independent record label named ‘FLYBOI I.N.C, appointing a new manager, negotiating and entering into performance deals and using the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ without the consent and permission of G-Worldwide, which Kiss Daniel’s legal counsel wasted no time in refuting by setting the records straight with an official statement of their own.

The question on the lips of music pundits, critics and fans now is, who is saying the truth, Kiss Daniel or G-Worldwide? G-Worldwide claimed the seven-year contract he signed with the label is yet to expire and that there was never a time they revisited the contract to make adjustment to enable him terminate it prior to its expiration, while Kiss Daniel claimed he has terminated the said contract since October 30th.
