Nigerian singer Kizz Daniel is in some serious hot water with his former label, G-Worldwide, slamming the singer with a N500 million lawsuit.
Recall that Kizz Daniel left G-Worldwide under a cloud after which the label sued him for breach of contract, claiming that he did not fulfil the terms of his contract before leaving.
The suit at the time had prevented Kizz Daniel from performing in December 2017 and he even had to change his name from ‘Kiss’ to ‘Kizz’ as the former was trademarked by G-Worldwide. The singer then floated his own record label, Flyboy Entertainment, and released a sophomore album ‘No Bad Songz.’
The current lawsuit was filed by counsel to the record label, Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), and in it they are praying the court to grant them Two Hundred Million Naira (N200,000,000) 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) which they say is for contract exit fees, amongst other reliefs sought.
The case was before a judge in Lagos on the 7th of October 2019, and there, the counsel for the record label sought reliefs for what they called a breach of contract and an infringement on their intellectual property by Daniel. The counsel then prayed to the court and requested two alternative reliefs: A stay of proceedings so as to attempt to settle the matter via Arbitration as the contract originally stipulated and a prayer granting leave to amend its originating process.
The case will be back in court on the 21st of January 2020.
