When Nigerian singer-songwriter Kizz Daniel—Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe-started singing and writing lyrics at age seven, his dad encouraged him while also urging him to finish his education.

  • His debut LP, 2016's New Era, peaked at No. 8 on Billboard's World Albums chart and won him three Headies, Nigeria's equivalent of the Grammys.
  • The videos for his 2016 single "Mama" and "One Ticket," his 2019 collaboration with American-born Nigerian singer-songwriter Davido, have each racked up more than 36 million views.
  • In 2017, Daniel split from his label, launched his own Flyboy Inc. imprint and signed producers Demmie Vee and Philkeyz.
  • He blended Afropop with EDM, grime, and hip-hop on his collaboration-packed hit sophomore album, 2018's No Bad Songz.
