5 Things that Should Matter Today: YCee and Kizz Daniel are proving artistes need entertainment lawyers before signing contracts

Kizz Daniel has now been dragged back to court by his former record label, G-Worldwide who are seeking N500m in damages over an alleged breach of contract.

The label in the lawsuit filed by its counsel Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), are seeking the sum of 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) for contract exit fees, among other reliefs.

The legal feud between Kizz Daniel and G-Worldwide is a protracted one, and now in the fray is Ycee’s former label Tinny Entertainment leaking songs off his upcoming album YceeVsZaheer due out November 8. Ycee left Tinny Entertainment in 2018, and it is unclear whether the leaked songs were recorded by the label before his departure. Anyway, it’s becoming imperative that artistes wholly understand their contracts before they sign to agreements, and that the place of entertainment lawyers can’t be overstated.
