Kizz daniel was not sued for a second time – his lawyers in defence of their client following the multiple reports arising that kizz Daniel was sued for a second time.
On Monday, October 7, 2019, Nigerian record company, G Worldwide (represented by Olisa Agbokoba SAN) prayed a High Court sitting in Lagos to stay proceedings so it can settle the matter between itself and its former artist, Kizz Daniel.
Its preferred method of resolution was the alternative dispute resolution method, arbitration. This option to resolve matters via alternative dispute resolution is a stipulation of the contract signed between G Worldwide and Kizz Daniel.
But On Friday, October 25, 2019, Pulse obtained a document that contains Kizz Daniel’s reply, as represented and signed by Oluwaseye I. Lawal (Esq.). In the 8-point document, Kizz Daniel denies that a new law suit was instituted against him by G Worldwide. He deems claims of a new law suit to be “false insinuations and misinformation.”
Point one states that Kizz Daniel has not breached his contract with G Worldwide Entertainment Limited (GWW). It states that instead, the contract between Kizz Daniel and G Worldwide had been lawfully and legally terminated by Clause 14.2 (a) of the contract signed between both parties. The contract was also drafted by G Worldwide.
On “Point 2” of the document, Oluwaseye Lawal (Esq.) writes that, “There is no new law suit between our client and GWW, contrary to a misleading media campaign instigated by GWW. The only two existing law suits between the parties was instituted about two years ago.”
The first suit
Kizz Daniel’s Lawyers, claim that a suit with number, SUIT NO: LD/2279/GCM/2018 was adjourned by a High Court sitting in Lagos before Olisa Agbakoba legal filed an application praying the court not to deliver judgement but allow both parties resolve the matter by arbitration.
Oluwaseye I. Lawal claims that it “vehemently” rejected the application on grounds that it is, “trite Law that parties are not allowed to arrest/stop the judgement of a court.” Barrister Lawal feels the general public should ask why G Worldwide and Olisa Agbakoba are trying to stop the judgement of a court of competent jurisdiction.
It also feels the general public should ask why claimants, G Worldwide and Olisa Agbakoba who instituted an action against his client (Kizz Daniel) do not want the court to deliver judgement.
The Second suit
Via his legal representatives, Kizz Daniel says that G Worldwide and Olisa Agbakoba have frustrated the second suit with number, SUIT NO: FHC/L/CS/1758/17. The matter, being that it is about a liquidated money demand of over N10,000,000 has been subjected to a fast-track procedure.
On point 4, the document reads, “Unfortunately, GWW and its legal team have frustrated trial in the last one year by filing different interlocutory applications despite the fact that there is a pending order for an accelerated trial.”
In closure, Oluwaseye Lawal submits that GWW and its legal team are afraid of the outcome of both cases via judgement and have intentionally engaged in a smear campaign against its client via social media. He describes it as “calumny” and ‘blackmail.’
He also states that GWW has failed with applications to stop his client from using stage names, “Kizz Daniel” and “Kiss Daniel” on more than two occasions.
