Posted on


Kiss Daniel whom according to his fans should have
won the Next Rated award wrote an open letter to his
fans to express his gratitude for their faith in him. He
“When I opened my social media accounts this
morning, it was humbling for me to see that so
many people believe that I deserve recognition
for the work I was able to do last year by the
grace of God. But like Thomas a Kempis
famously wrote; “Man proposes, but God
To see that fans across different social audiences
appreciate the efforts I put into making my
music is one I will never look down upon, no
award beats that, and I hope to be able to repay
this confidence in good time.
My fans have been the most amazing source of
inspiration for me, and I promise never to let
you down. From the days when I was nobody in
this industry, to song after song that you have
helped become hits, I say God bless you for all
the support.
To be honest, it was quite heartbreaking to find
out that I did not get the particular recognition I
so much craved, but I am excited that it only
means I need to work harder, and that 2016 will
be a bigger year for me.
In 2015, some of the awards I won with your
support include; ‘Best New Act’ at the Nigerian
Entertainment Awards (NEA), Next Rated Artiste
of The Year at the Extreme Awards in Benin
Republic, AFRIMA Awards Most Promising Act in
I also found out I was one of the top 5 Google
Top Trending Nigerian Musicians. For an artiste
with less than 10 songs to my name, I think this
is enough for me to congratulate myself upon.
This year 2016 is going to be bigger and better;
my debut album drops this year, and with the
work put into it by myself, my team, and that of
the artistes magnanimous enough to feature on
it, I am positive that this will be the year.
I also want to use this opportunity to tell the fans
to look out for the forthcoming single of my
label mate and brother “Sugarboy” dropping in
few days from now, as we at G-Worldwide
Entertainment will continue to bring you good
I thank you all; my fans for always supporting
me, the media platforms who continue to keep
me in the public’s mind, the industry seniors
who have made it their job to guide and mentor,
and the members of my team who work behind
the scenes to make sure I keep my head level
and continue to make great music. Special
shoot-out to my label boss “Emperor Geezy” who
continues to bring the best out of me.
I wish you all a happy New Year, and hope you
have a good time in 2016.
Almost forgot, thanks to the good guys at The
Guardian UK for giving me a mention in The
playlist: the best African pop of 2015”.
