Kizz Daniel is popularly known for releasing the chart-topping single “Woju”. After the release of “Woju”, he went on to release several other hit songs.
Needless to say, he is one of the few artistes in Nigeria who are very careful about their releases. It is almost like every song he drops turns out to be a hit track.
The multiple-award-winning singer adopts Afro-pop, Afrobeats, and Yoruba music Genres. Through his unique voice and style of singing, he has been able to amass thousands of fans and avid followers across Nigeria, Africa and the world at large.
Kizz Daniel was born in Ogun state, which is also his state of origin. He hails from Abeokuta North local government area precisely.
The talented artist spent almost all of his early days in Ogun state, attending primary, secondary and university there.
He had always shown a keen interest in music. According to reports, his father was highly supportive of his talent.
However, he didn’t involve full-time in music until he graduated from the University in 2013. He studied Water Resources Management and Agrometeorology (Water Engineering) at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
While in the university, he pursued music alongside his academics. But it was in 2013, the same year he graduated, he signed a contract with G-Worldwide.
Kizz Daniel released his first official single “Shoye” on May 1, 2014, along with a music video that was directed by MEX. But back then “Shoye” didn’t receive much popularity.
However, his second single “Woju”, released on September 1, 2014, became popular almost instantly. It remained on number 1 spot on several Nigerian charts for many weeks.
In May 2015, Daniel released a third follow up single, “Laye,” on his birthday, along with a video two weeks later which was shot in different locations in the eastern part of Africa and was directed by AJE FILMS.
Kizz Daniel released his first studio album titled New Era on May 14, 2016. Back then he was still signed up with G-Worldwide.
However, Kizz Daniel left G-Worldwide Entertainment in November 2017 to create his own record label, Fly Boy Inc.
As it stands, Flyboy has started flying high. The new record label has started signing up younger talents. Among them are Demmie Vee and Philkeyz.

Fame and popularity come with a few hurdles. Kizz Daniel has so far had his fair share of hurdles. His split from G-Worldwide Entertainment resulted in a court case.
G-Worldwide sued Kizz Daniel to court but he was not found guilty for any of the crimes he was accused of.
However, the same case led to the singer legally changing his name from Kiss Daniel to Kizz Daniel. This happened as a result of his former employers claiming the rights to his stage name.
New Spotify and Apple Music accounts were also created immediately with the names Kizz Daniel, with his new songs featured.
His change of name has, however, not cooled off the tension between him and his former employers.
In June 2018, G-Worldwide made a move to own the rights to the name “Kizz Daniel” and further advised the singer to desist from using the name or face legal consequences.

Kizz Daniel’s girlfriend
In the early parts of 2018, Kizz Daniel was allegedly dating Chidinma Ekile. However, both of them neither confirmed nor denied the rumors.
When Chidinma was questioned regarding her relationship with the singer, she simply said “
I don’t like to speak about my relationship or love life in public. There is nothing to talk about me and Kiss Daniel; people can say anything they want to say.
“Whether I am in a relationship with him or not, everyone will get to know later. I find it weird that I am always linked to one musician or the other. At times, it takes extra effort for me to convince people that certain reports about me are untrue,” she added.
We can only keep guessing if they are in a relationship or not since she didn’t deny nor agree to the claims.
The Woju crooner at some point filmed Chidinma sitting on his bed. He uploaded the video and captioned it with heart emojis. Now, what was that supposed to mean?
Ok, nobody said anything. But let’s say the obvious. They’ve certainly got a thing for each other.
