My songs prove I am versatile – Kizz Daniel

Ace Nigerian singer, Oluwatobiloba Anidugbe, also known as Kizz Daniel, has stated that the new songs he dropped are proof of his versatility.

The 29-year-old artiste recently left many fans intrigued when he announced that he would be releasing two songs—‘Twe Twe’ and ‘Too Busy to Be Bae’— to round off the year.

Kizz told The Punch that the songs, which were released on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, further showcased his versatility and innovative approach to music; blending traditional Nupe trybe influences with contemporary sounds.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the songs, the ‘Buga’ hit-maker said; “‘Twe Twe’, which is a harmonious fusion of tradition and modernity, is a vibrant and energetic track that draws inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of the Nupe trybe in Nigeria.

Nigerian stand-up comedian, Fagade Ademola, known by his stage name, Omobaba, has said skit-makers are different from stage comedians.

Omo Baba said stand-up acts are more versatile than content creators because they can easily switch to skit-making.

He, however, said that some skit-makers can also switch to stage comedy, but it is only if they are good enough.

The comedian made this statement while talking about his decision to delve into other professions like show hosting, event MC amongst others.

He said, “A stand-up comedian is different from a skit maker. If anyone is facing a challenge, it may be as a result of the fact that they don’t know what they are doing or they get carried away with bandwagons. Nobody is under pressure; everyone has a place to thrive. A stand-up comedian could also be a skit maker and a skit maker, if funny enough, can also try to be on the stage.”

Omo Baba added; “I don’t see a crime in me being a presenter and at the same time an entertainer, or someone being an event planner and at the same time a musician. Can’t politicians be teachers or businessmen too? All my careers are rewarding. It just depends on how I pay attention to them. Being a stand-up comedian has helped in the growth of my business.”
