Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe (Kizz Daniel) was born on May 1, 1994 in Ogun State, Nigeria. He is originally from Abeokuta North local government area and besides this fact, no detail of his family and upbringing has surfaced. However, we know for sure that he was raised by his parents along with his siblings; three younger brothers & a sister had also once shared a glimpse of his childhood memory on Instagram telling of what it was like growing up in a rat- infested house in KUTO, ABK (Abeokuta). Kiss Daniel as his new stage name goes, attended the University of Agriculture in Abeokuta, where he graduated with a degree in Water Engineering. It was at the university that he developed an interest in music and decided to pursue it as a career.
Daniel lost his dad, Kola Anidugbe on May 29, 2015. He once shared a photo of himself and parents on socia media before the older man’s demise. Despite the controversy surrounding his absence from his father’s burial, Daniel later shared an emotional tribute on late Anidugbe’s birthday on June 17, 2015. In written speech, the singer described himself as the Stupid son for not being there for the old man, for loving the fame above his family and for believing that (typhoid) that took his father’s life wasn’t serious. The artiste regrets not having his father around long enough to fulfill the promise he made – to gift the old man a car on his birthday.
He began his music career in 2013, fresh out of the university and came across Emperor Geezy, the CEO of G- World Entertainment who signed him to his record label. Through the label, he released his first single titled Shoye in 2014 along with the music video in some weeks after. Soon after, Woju became a high-life hit song on the top on the MTV Base Official Naija where it stayed 11 weeks and later climbed and remain at number 1 for another six weeks. The song describes the attribute of a typical African lady to compliments a gentleman.
On his birthday in 2015, Daniel released his third single titled Laye and two weeks later, the video was shot and directed by Aje Films at some locations in East Africa. Daniel released his first studio album titled New Era on May 14, 2016.
