Sensational Nigerian pop star Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe popularly known as Kizz Daniel is our JAGUDA ARTISTE OF THE MONTH for the month of March.
The FlyBoy Inc. boss has been active on the music scene since 2014 which means the Ogun State born singer has spent half a decade already in the game. He shot to national prominence with his instant hit record ‘Woju’ with several hits to his name even after.
At the moment Kizz Daniel would make top 10 biggest Nigerian artistes ranking at the moment.
Quite frankly not many artiste and colleagues would survive what the ‘Yeba’ crooner faced after his controversial exit from his former record label G-Worldwide. Many promising or well established acts have often fallen from grace after going against the label or eventually parting ways. The examples are there, not one, two or three.
Legal suit about breaching his contract terms and even loosing the rights to use his original moniker Kiss Daniel would be enough weight to slow down an artiste and perhaps slowly kill his career but then again Vado fought through and came out unscathed.
Starting off FlyBoy Inc. meant the ‘No Do’ crooner had to do for himself what his former label did for him. He had points to prove, he had odds to beat and yes in deed he has proven and beaten the odds against him.
Shortly after founding his music imprint the singer graced many featured songs which he did so well. Still keeping up the momentum, he dished out his very bold sophomore album titled ‘No Bad Songs’ which major hits like ‘One Ticket’ and ‘Madu’.
Just three months into the year it is safe to say, Kizz Daniel is the first Nigerian artiste to churn out a major hit record and a contender for ‘song of the year’ with ‘Fvck You’.
The tune started out as kitten but over the past week it has tuned to a monster with the trending ‘Fvck You Challenge’ devouring the local social media space.
One remarkable thing about the trending ‘Fvck You Challenge’ would be a confirmation that Kizz Daniel has big chemistry working with music producer Young Jonn. You remember ‘Mama’ was produced by Young Jonn? Maybe the two should make a whole project together.
There is a big promo strategy yet grossly abused by our music stars. That would be coming up with a challenge for every god damn song they release. Some have gone ahead to subtly endorse stripping and nudity for purposes of going viral.
However, Kizz harnessed it to turn his emotional jam to a tsunami. He was able to get his highly respected colleagues to join the challenge which had ripple effect on fans and younger upcoming music act who would merely want to sit on the fence.
Some of the best in the game like Sarkodie, Simi, Tiwa Savage, Falz, Vector, CDQ, Dremo etc have thrown in their covers for the ‘Fvck You Challenge’. Different conversations have taken place on social media for this cause.
A twist on the challenge was when Tiwa’s line in her challenge cover triggered Escape Lounge CEO to call the fvck on his debtors which includes some of our big music stars. Many have found this as an outlet to speak up about ill treatment of any kind.
In the end, pop star Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe aka Kizz Daniel is the winner as he has managed to get folks to pay attention to his music which would have been ignored because of the brazen lyrics.
