Ace-music producer, Philip Ahaiwe Chukwuja, better known as Philkeys, has recounted how he once turned down Kizz Daniel after the singer offered to pay him N50,000 for a studio session.
He said Kizz Daniel was still up-and-coming when he made the offer, which he declined because he was already working with legendary musician, King Sunny Ade.
Philkeys, however, said he later linked up with Kizz Daniel and made several songs together after the ‘Woju’ crooner hit stardom.
Philkeys stated this in a recent interview with MTV Base Africa.
He said, “He [Kizz Daniel] reached out to me. He was not signed then. He told me that he had a certain amount of money, I think N50k, that he wanted to work with me.
“But my charges don pass N50k by that time wey I come dey work for Sunny Ade. That time I be big boy. I was like, ‘No o, I’m not doing.’
“I was gonna see if he was going to call me back but he didn’t call me back, so we just allowed that part to slide. Then, when he blew up, he called me back saying that he wanted to work with me.”
