In a chat with Sunday Scoop, a former manager to Kizz Daniel revealed that the singer’s change of name has no effect on his legal tussle with his estranged record label, G-Worldwide. Last week, the singer, Daniel Anidugbe, formerly known as Kiss Daniel, changed his name to Kizz Daniel with just a little spelling difference. He made the announcement known in an Instagram post during the week by putting up a picture of the new name with the caption, “Moving forward. Call me Kizz Daniel.”
Shortly after Daniel made the post, several blogs reported that with the move, the singer was now free of all obligations to his former label, G-Worldwide Entertainment.
However, his former manager, Louiza Williams, reacted to the reports when he spoke to Sunday Scoop.
“I actually did not know that he had changed his name until you told me. However, there is no big deal about that; it has nothing to do with the case,” said the musician’s ex-manager.
“The next court date is June 26. It is not true that the case has been settled; so, I don’t know where all those reports came from. If there was anything like that, I would be aware of it. Though Kizz Daniel doesn’t come to court personally, his lawyers appear on his behalf and I am sure they pass relevant information across to him accordingly. The court ruled that both parties should maintain the status quo, but Kizz Daniel is doing what is best known to him, which is contrary to what the court ordered.”
On what move G-Worldwide is considering, Williams said,
“The company definitely has a plan but I cannot reveal anything for now,” he said.
