The G-Worldwide act, also talked about his label playing a smart one on him when it comes to splitting proceeds from shows and endorsement deals.
Read excerpts from the interview
When was the first time you knew you wanted to become a singer?
I think I was about seven then. I used to write a lot and when my father noticed my passion, he encouraged me to do more of it. However, I started music professionally in 2014.
You had a great outing with your New Era album, what’s the greatest benefit you have derived from it?
I got an award to show that I had the best album of 2016 and that means a lot to me. It shows that my work did not go unnoticed. The album went viral and I got universal recognition which also makes me happy. I am glad I made the album because initially, I had doubts about its success. I thought it wouldn’t be a hit because I did not feature major players in the music industry. Thankfully, it came out well and the fans loved it.
Do you sometimes wish you featured some artistes on the album?
Yes, I definitely do. However, I believe that’s how God wanted it. It is now in the past and I am currently working on another album which would be released next year. I want to make sure that whenever I drop an album, it will be a resounding success.
Which artistes would you like to work with?
I want to work with a lot of people and I’m still going to do that though I may not be able to tell you their names now.
Who are some of the people that influenced your sound?
I would say 9ice and 2face.
What are the major lessons being an artiste has taught you?
I’ve learnt to always keep my mouth shut and not to always talk like a fool. One must always be eager to listen instead of talking. Talking too much will get you in a lot of trouble.
Have you ever been tempted to lash out at some of your followers online who get rude and abusive?
I am not that kind of person. I tried it once but I realised it’s not in my nature to do that. People are fond of throwing shots at me but I just laugh about it and move on. I don’t know what the person is going through at that time. That individual may be frustrated and is looking for an avenue to vent his anger and I refuse to come down to the person’s level.
What inspired your song, Sin City?
It is a response to a lot of comments I had been seeing online. There was a time I won two different awards for the Best Newcomer category and some people said that I didn’t deserve it. That was why in Sin City, I said that it’s not like the other guys out there are not cool but I’m the one that was chosen. The organisers of the awards thought I deserved the award and I couldn’t have rejected their good gesture.
What’s your take on the prominence of boobs, butts and nudity in the entertainment industry?
It is needed as it gets some certain set of people interested in music. As a matter of fact, I know some people who watch videos of ladies twerking first thing every morning. There are some people who wouldn’t watch your videos if there are no ladies flaunting their bums in it and that would reduce your views and followership. For instance, most of the feedback I have gotten on my new music video, Duro, has been about the ladies in it.
What is your contribution to your label mate, Sugarboy’s forthcoming album?
We collaborated on two great songs in the album and I prayed for him too, which I believe is very important.
It was once speculated that you only get a little of your concert and endorsement fees while your label takes the lion share, how true is that?
All I know is that I have a lot of money. I am Kiss Daniel, nobody can put me in a box.
Singer/rapper, Lil Kesh, is insisting that the music industry is filled to the brim with traitors.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop, the ‘Cause Trouble’ crooner, said he doesn’t trust anyone as the music industry is filled with traitors.
In his words:
There are lots of fake people in this industry. When they see you doing well, they would come around you. But what they are really after is the fame and the fortune they think you have and they wouldn’t think twice about betraying you. I have seen a lot of such people in the industry and I can’t tolerate them because I have no time for fake love.”
On if he has ever been betrayed by anyone in the industry:
“It has never happened to me and that is because I deliberately keep my circle small. Most of the people around me now are the ones that I knew from way back. I’m not saying that it’s bad to make friends but one just has to be careful and smart in the process.”
On his new hairstyle:
“I’m an entertainer and I need to change my look from time to time. Many of my fans often ask me to change my style and I have to satisfy their yearnings. There’s no big deal to it and for people that don’t like it, I only have one question for them: is it your head?”

It appears Cossy Ojiakor is trying to expose someone Apart from her revealing stories calling out some actresses she connected to a rich man, she reposted a post by Freeze asking for an update on controversial journalist ,Kemi Olunloyo.
Don’t judge A book by its cover…. Story….story ….story… Ok this is a one off… I had a girlfriend in university of Nigeria Enugu campus.. She is very fair and super cute. Her name is Oge….but I can’t mention her surname because it is the same with her uncle who is a reverend father….
We went to visit this Reverend father somewhere in Enugu state during the thanks giving day… I ended up not going to church that day thou. Because I didn’t have something very covering to wear.. Well I was by the window looking at the various activities going on in the church premises because the reverend fathers live within the church. Then this average dark man entered the room I was in.. And grabbed me from behind…his hand rested on my bosom and he squeezed them…..I have learnt my lesson never to fight off men when they are in need…but to talk my way out peacefully…. Well….. I did a good job…I accepted to come back for the action and he gave me money….the money the type u know…the offering or can it be tithe paid by a church member that day… The way it was squeeze different denomination of cash.. as seen in offering box. There goes the hopes and prayers made by some poor church goers…well … I took the money….I spent it in school but never went back…. For this I will never mention the reverend father name…i told my oge about this. She said the Reverend father have girlfriends and even kids. Well …. sweeties… For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God… God said. ALL …he did not exclude PASTORS and REVEREND FATHERS.. They are just men. The are weak. They are tempted by evil and sometimes they fall. Let’s pray for them… They need deliverance too. ….from angelic faces and useless bitches and delila that have sold their conscience. Me I still have conscience so I will make heaven by Gods grace.

Veteran artiste/video music director, Akin Alabi, in a recent interview with Planet TV,said he believes some veteran acts still have what it takes to make a comeback to the music scene, even though a few others might have nothing more to offer.
In His words:
Some still have what it takes to make a comeback, while some might be spent already…
He added that with some acts, who know it will be impossible to make a comeback, they give new artsites, a platform to build their music career.
So guys, what do you think? Should veteran acts still try to make a comeback or just start their own label and take on new acts for grooming?
