Kiss Daniel writes Thank You Letter to Fans in the Midst of #TheHeadies2015 drama



Kiss DanielAin’t no drama here!
Kiss Daniel who was also one of the nominees for the Headies 2015 Next Rated award which caused a feud between Olamide and Don Jazzy has released a gracious thank you letter to his fans.

Kiss tells BN “No award beats the support of my fans”

Read on;

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 disposes”. 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 Africa. 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 music.

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

    Lovely letter, very enlightening as well. Shows his achievements without sounding like he is bragging. Most importantly, it sounds like he wrote it himself *davido cough cough*.

    Even though I liked him, I was a little indifferent before about the awards, now I like him 1million times more, I only wish I we could go back in time so I can vote for him, since I skipped voting the last timeout.
    Beta person. God bless ur hustle. It is well.

    The next rated and more categories at the Headies shouldn’t be a voting category by fans it should be done by the know how in the music industry , check out the most prestigious music award in the world which is GRAMY it is never decided by voting from fans , u can imagine if it have been done that way what do you think would have happened to black artistes ? None would have won it till date , headies need to step up it game on this aspect, “my opinion” #LeaveTrashForLawma. Love u kiss no homo, awa ti ti FUNAAB.

      hi zeezki, don’t think the headies are trying to be the grammys by any stretch of the imagination. and they do have other categories which are decided by the music pro judges. if they have a category meant for fans to vote obviously they do that for a reason. probably one of the reason is to get statistical numbers and information about artists’ ability to pull. from this situation with ybnl & mavin, we can conclude that mavin have more internet pull. thats by a strictly online voting numbers game. thats the kind of information some decision makers would like to know.

    They were 5 nominees and there will only be ONE WINNER. I don’t understand the feud. Everyone can’t be the winner that’s why people like us who are their FANS will have to vote.

    Now, how many of those ranting on SOCIAL MEDIA voted for their act. The person with the highest number of vote took home the price and people wont let us hear word.

    TIWA SAVAGE was nominated in her time, I don’t know if anyone in her category is as successful as her presently including the winner (can’t remember who). Just do your thing please. We all know Jennifer Hudson more than the winner of the talent hunt she went.
