Kiss Daniel and Reekado Banks could be both referred to as ‘classmates’ because they ventured into the music industry together sometimes in 2013/2014. A year after both artists were both nominated for the very controversial Headies ‘Next Rated’ Award. Mavin Records star Reekado Banks won the controversial ‘Next Rated’ category ahead of YBNL former act, Lil Kesh , Cynthia Morgan, and label mate, Korede Bello, which obviously sparked outrage and tantrums.
In what would be a critical outlook we hope to analyze which of these two singers is ahead of the other counterpart.
Anidugbe Oluwatobiloba Daniel better known by his stage name Kiss Daniel decided to prove he is an A class artist despite his initial loss at the 2015 Headies Awards for the ‘Next Rated’.
The former G-Worldwide music act has been one of the most consistent music stars delivering back to back hits in the last two years. His debut album ‘New Era’ received heaps of praise and accolades including winning Pop Album of The Year at the Headies. In 2017 were competition was fierce because the likes Wizkid, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Olamide brought in their A game, Vado effortlessly dropped hits like ‘Sofa’, ‘Yeba’ without subscribing to the in vogue ‘pon pon’ sound.
Since he parted ways with former label to setting up his own Fly Boi Inc. music imprint Kiss Daniel is absolutely doing fine if not great. With his recent release ‘No Do’, and most recently ‘4 Dayz’ proves the young label boss still has the magic to spin off a hit without stressing.
Right after winning the controversial next rated award, Mavin act, Reekado Banks had everything to prove to Nigerians and the world at large about his music and talent.
The criticisms and pressure enforced on him may have made a more dedicated artiste in him as he keeps proving his worth with every release. At this point it’s easy to say he already justified his ‘Next Rated’ award. Mr Banks is Mavin Records strongest male artist at the moment. Last year wasn’t a great year for most artists under the label besides Tiwa Savage, Reeky did the most churning his own personal hits and also bagging a lot of features than any of his contemporaries. Although Ayoleyi Solomon has not marked 2018 with any music release ‘Easy (jeje), ‘Like’ from last year are still doing very well on the music charts.
Just to end it all Kiss Daniel can be put slightly ahead of Reeky, it would be a case of Leo Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo.
Who do you think is better between BOY Kiss and Reeky?
