G-Worldwide Set To raise Legal Battle With Kizz Daniel , G-WorldWide Entertainment Limited (GWW) , the Record Label through which Kizz Daniel rose to fame and became positioned to attract fortune , has reignited its legal battle against Kizz Daniel , who is now its former signee.

The Label in pursuit of this course , has engaged the law firm of Olisa Agbakoba Legal , led by Senior Counsel , Dr. Olisa Agbakoba , SAN , to prosecute its claims against the Artiste.

Following the Artiste’s irregular exit from the recording contract he executed with GWW in 2017 , coupled with the imprecise media bout instigated by the Artiste to damage GWW’s reputation , the Record Label has sought legal redress against the Artiste before the relevant Courts in Nigeria , viz: a claim for breach of recording contract against the Artiste before the High Court of Lagos State , and another claim before the Federal High Court , Lagos for infringement of its intellectual property rights by the Artiste.

The matter pending at the High Court of Lagos State , which was commenced by an Originating Summons , came up on Monday , October 7 , 2019 for Judgment before Hon. Justice Taofiquat Oyekan-Abdullai. However , GWW through its Solicitors informed the Court that it had filed an Application seeking two alternative prayers; A prayer to stay proceedings pending reference of the matter to Arbitration , as provided under the enabling contract between the parties and a prayer granting leave to amend its originating process.

The Court , after hearing Counsel’s submissions on behalf of GWW , with respect to the reasons necessitating the application , appreciated the peculiarity of the circumstances , which is predicated on the fact that the former counsel representing the Label , argued the Originating Summons in defiance of the label’s instructions to defer steps in the suit , and ultimately withdraw the suit in view of its decision to engage another law firm. Consequently , the Court adjourned the matter for the hearing of the Label’s application to January 21 , 2020.

Furthermore , in seeking for redress for the damage suffered at the hands of Kizz Daniel , the label is praying for the following reliefs from the High Court; General damages in the sum of Two Hundred Million Naira (200 , 000 , 000) , special damages for breach of contract in the sum of N179 , 499 , 957.00 (One Hundred and Seventy-Nine Million , Four Hundred and Ninety-Nine Thousand , Nine Hundred and Fifty-Seven Naira) and N150 , 000 , 000 (One Hundred and Fifty Million Naira) for contract exit fees , among other reliefs.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Label , Mr. Festus Ehimare , has said that the essence of the legal actions is to enjoin Nigerian Artistes , to inculcate a habit whereby they respect the sanctity of contracts , as opposed to playing victims once they realize they have breached the terms of a valid and legally binding contract , as a result of their hurried exit after becoming famous and in-demand. He further advised upcoming artistes to refrain from the practice of administering medicine after death , and urged them to ensure that they uphold the terms of their recording contract in good faith.
