Here are the biggest stories that made the rounds in entertainment yesterday and others that unraveled while you slept – and are still buzzing today.
Between Kiss Daniel and G-Worldwide Entertainment
Weeks ago, celebrated Nigerian singer, Kiss Daniel announced that he was leaving the record label he had been signed to for nearly 5 years, G-Worldwide and was floating his own label, Flyboy Inc.
Kiss Daniel went on to release a track, No Do under the imprint of his label days ago and it looks like hell has let loose in the G-worldwide camp as the label has filed a suit restricting the singer from “further distribution, publication or performance of songs from his debut album, New Era and a soon-to-be released album, Evolution”
The label also sought an injunction that restrains Kiss Daniel from “negotiating or entering into any agreement” without its “consent or permission”.
G-Worldwide also accused the singer of exploiting his stage name “Kiss Daniel”.
In his response to the suit, Kiss Daniel published a letter written by his lawyers, L&A Legal Consultants titled, “What G-Worldwide Entertainment Ltd will not tell you”.
The reply explains that Kiss Daniel exited the label “in compliance with the provisions of his recording contract” and in respect to his stage name “it is laughable and unbelievable that the label will purportedly claim to own the singer’s middle name”.

Alternative artiste, Brymo has asserted that he is the greatest artiste in Nigeria right now as he helps young music fans to pay attention to what is important as little attention is being paid to content these days.
In an interview with Pulse NG, Brymo spoke on his own genre and the public’s misconception of genres, his reactions to criticisms and his forthcoming album, Oso.
