Kizz Daniel Used My Chorus On Buga Without Permission — UK-Based Nigerian Singer Alleges

A United Kingdom based Nigerian Afrobeats singer identified as Rela has taken to social media to accuse Kizz Daniel of sampling his chorus without taking any permission from him.

Rela, the aggrieved singer who attested to the fact that he has been a big fan of Kizz Daniel since time immemorial, came up with the allegation following Kizz Daniel’s release of Buga, featuring Tekno on May 4th, 2022.

According to Rela, known as @favyrela on Twitter, he, Rela, had uploaded a hook or chorus titled “Ololo” on both Twitter and Tik Tok in March, 2022. The chorus was meant to be on his forthcoming EP as claimed.

Rela, who is struggling to know why there is a resemblance between his hook and Kizz Daniel’s chorus on Buga drew attention to the fact that the part where he (Rela) sang “o lo lo lo” on his own chorus was changed to “go low low low” by Kizz Daniel, on Buga chorus. Rela wrote:

Chorus in @KizzDaniel new sound sounds very similar to my sound. I would love this to get to him. If true, I would love some credits.

Rela became totally perplexed when he further realized that Kizz Daniel’s “go low low low” on Buga was sung with the same tone he, Rela, used to sing his own “o lo lo lo” on the aforementioned chorus he uploaded online. The singer replied to a lot of tweets published by internet users about Kizz Daniel’s new single thus with a video showing the similarities between both choruses:

Please take a moment to judge. I love @KizzDaniel but did he use my sound on his new song BUGA ft @alhajitekno?

Since being hit by the reality of Kizz Daniel’s new single featuring Tekno, Rela has made major efforts to get Kizz Daniel to give him credits for his lines and tone on Buga chorus. Rela has also called Kizz Daniel out in over fifty different posts on Twitter. But Kizz Daniel never replied till now.
