Singer, Anidugbe Tobiloba Daniel known as Kiss Daniel has replied his former record label, that dragged him to court for breach of contract.
The singer recently floated his own label Flyboy I.N.C after announcing his exit from G-Worldwide signing a contract in 2013.
G-Worldwide through their lawyers, Calmhill Partners however, took the singer to court for “taking steps to appoint a new manager, solicit for bookings, and has continued to negotiate and enter performance agreements in respect of the songs from the album “New Era“, and “Evolution” which is set to be released soon containing singles such as “Yeba“, “For You“, “Senorita“, “Sofa” and others, produced under the contract, including using the stage name ‘Kiss Daniel’ without the company’s prior consent and permission.”
But the singer, through his lawyer, L&A Legal Consultants, in a statement signed by Oluwaseyi Lawal, said the the federal high court, Lagos, refused G-Worldwide Entertainment the application to stop him from performing, recording or using the stage name Kiss Daniel.
“It is therefore, laughable and unbelievable that G-Worldwide Entertainment Ltd will purportedly claim to own or have dashed our client his own middle name. The status quo under the contract between the parties as at the date G-Worldwide Entertainment Ltd filed its suit was that our client is no longer signed to G-Worldwide Entertainment Ltd since the termination was done a month earlier.
“Therefore, our client shall obey and comply with that status quo as directed by the court, it is a common principle of law that no court will stop an act which has already been completed. For the avoidance of doubt, we reiterate that the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos did not grant any injunction against our client, rather the court refused the application of G-Worldwide Entertainment Ltd, for an injunction to restrain our client from performing, recording or using the stage name Kiss Daniel.”
