Kiss Daniel and Sugarboy has been accused of stealing their newly released single ‘Kilamity’.
In a post put up on their Instagram page, TSMC, which is the home of upcoming singer Barz, says Kiss Daniel and Sugarboy released a copy of Barz’ song under a new title ‘Kilamiti‘ after Barz had dropped a similar single last November featuring Sugarboy.

TSMC says Kilamiti was worked on by the same producer LuisAMG, who produced Barz’ song last year.
“We are making this press release because we want the general public to know the injustice which have been done to us and our business,” TSMC said in their statement last night, adding, “We definitely will have our lawyer look into this matter and will share with the world on its progress.
This update came just hours after filmmaker Chinneylove accused Triple MG music boss Ubi Franklin of stealing her movie script. Like it was during the Omoni Oboli vs Jude Idada case, the music boss refused to address it.
Now, yet another copyright infringement accusation has been reported in the Nigerian entertainment industry, and as at press time, Kiss Daniel had yet to speak up.
Read the full statement the music company posted on their Instagram last night:
“We at “The Silent Music Company” TSMC, will like the general public to be aware of the injustice brought our way by G worldwide Ent, home record label to Kiss Daniel and Sugarboy.
A song titled ‘kilamiti’ was created by our artist BARZ @iam_barz, produced by LuisAMG @luisamgondeck and had Sugarboy @sugarboygww of G worldwide featured on the song.
We contacted Sugarboy’s management when we wanted to drop the song back in June 2016 and we have chat evidence of sugarboy telling me and I quote “my management get strict policy on featuring. Abi u don see kiss daniel on any song wey dem feature am? but una fit drop the song, i no go fit dey the video sha”
The song was later dropped on all the major blogs in Nigeria, Ghana and UK and promoted on June 11 2016. Most of the radio stations in Nigeria have played this song, the video was also shot by Director Q and dropped November 2016 without sugarboy involved, and the video has been promoted and played on vaious platforms and TV stations.
Today a copyright of our artiste’s song was dropped by Sugarboy feat Kiss Daniel titled ‘Kilamity’ as against “Kilamiti” with the aid of same producer LuisAMG. (We also have prove of online banking transfer showing we paid off the producer for his job done).
We are making this press release because we want the general public to know the injustice which have been done to us and our business.
We definitely will have our lawyer look into this matter and will share with the world on its progress. Thank you for your time”
