G-Worldwide says Kizz Daniel’s name change doesn’t absolve him from court case
In an interview with Punch, Kizz Daniel’s former manager, Louiza Williams, has stated that the singer’s recent change of name had no effect on the court case.
“I actually did not know that he had changed his name until you told me. However, there is no big deal about that; it has nothing to do with the case,” Williams said.
“The next court date is June 26. It is not true that the case has been settled; so, I don’t know where all those reports came from. If there was anything like that, I would be aware of it.
“Though Kizz Daniel doesn’t come to court personally, his lawyers appear on his behalf and I am sure they pass relevant information across to him accordingly. The court ruled that both parties should maintain the status quo, but Kizz Daniel is doing what is best known to him, which is contrary to what the court ordered.“
