Kizz Daniel

Kizz Daniels warm, effervescent pop translated to his first national radio hit with 2014′s Woju,” a song that scored a nomination for Hottest Single at the Nigeria Entertainment Awards the following year. It was included on his 2016 full-length debut, New Era. Then performing as Kiss Daniel, he rebranded as Kizz Daniel before going independent and issuing his second album, No Bad Songz, on his own Flyboy Inc label in 2018.

Following the release of another hit single, Mama,” Daniel issued his full-length debut, New Era, on G-Worldwide in May 2016. It debuted at number eight on the Billboard World Album Chart.
