GWW singer Kiss Daniel has revealed that working with any foreign singers is not one of his priorities.
International collaborations have become highly sought after among Nigerian artistes, with many paying top dollar to feature American singers in their songs.
He said in an interview with Punch: “Right now, I’m just concerned about making good music. International collaborations will come at the right time but that’s not my goal.”
He added: “For all my songs, I tell stories and pass messages across. I’m dedicated to making good music and I don’t subscribe to the notion that good music doesn’t sell.
Good music doesn’t even need promotion because it would sell itself.
Good music would also cross international borders and announce one to the world.”
A graduate of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Kiss Daniel says that he feels bad he doesn’t put his university degree to use.
He says: “I often say that dropping engineering for music is the greatest sacrifice I have ever made for my career. That’s because I studied water engineering for five years and I graduated with a good result.
“Many of my mates that we left school together are doing very well now, and sometimes, I feel bad that I’m not practicing the profession that I devoted a lot of time and effort to study. If I was a practicing engineer, I’m sure that I would have gone very far by now.
“On the flip side though, I enjoy what I’m doing and I have never pictured myself doing a 9-5 job. Making music comes naturally to me and it makes me happy, so I have no regrets.”
