Kizz Daniel has been dragged back to court by his former record label, G-Worldwide who want N500m in damages over an alleged breach of contract.
The record label in the lawsuit filed by its counsel Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), want Two Hundred Million Naira in damages, One Hundred and Seventy-Nine Million, Four Hundred and Ninety-Nine Thousand, Nine Hundred and Fifty-Seven Naira (N179,499,957) in special damages for breach of contract, One Hundred and Fifty Million Naira (N150, 000, 000) for contract exit fees, among other reliefs.
Remember a court injunction issued against Boykizz stopped him from performing throughout December 2017, hence the name change to Kizz Daniel as his former stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ was trademarked by G-Worldwide.
The singer launched his label, Flyboy Entertainment and also released his sophomore album “No Bad Songz”.
When the matter came up before the Federal High Court on Monday, October 7, 2019, GWW through its Solicitors informed the Court that it had filed an application seeking two alternative prayers; A prayer for stay of proceedings pending reference of the matter to arbitration as provided under the enabling contract between both parties and a prayer granting leave to amend its originating process.
The case which was brought before a High Court sitting in Lagos was adjourned till January 21, 2020.
Hmmm…This is about to be a war.
