Nigerian Afrobeats sensation Kizz Daniel kicks off 2024 with new Davido collaboration, 'TWE TWE', celebrating a decade at the top of the game.
Few artists have had the success Kizz Daniel’s achieved over the past few years. Accumulating over two billion streams, thanks to chart-topping singles like ‘Buga’ and fan-favourite tracks like ‘Cough (odo)’, the Nigerian songwriter has become one of Afobeats foremost superstars. Kicking off 2024 where he’s left off, the 29-year-old last month released ‘TWE TWE’, yet another legendary link-up with Lagosian-raised performer, Davido.
Produced by Killertunes, Blaisebeats and AyZed, a trifecta of famed beat makers responsible for billboard-smashing hits, the single comes in a milestone year for Kizz. Celebrating a decade at the top of the game, he’s looking to capitalise on the hype of previous releases and stun fans with a whole new wave of Afrobeats. ‘TWE TWE’ was teased prolifically over the Christmas period, prompting a feature from Grammy Award nominee Davido, with whom Kizz last teamed up on 2018’s ‘One Ticket’.
Headline shows at festivals like Essence and performances at World Cup opening ceremonies are all in a day’s work for the veteran. An all-round entertainer adept on the world stage, the sky is seemingly the limit for the Afropop sensation. ‘TWE TWE’ is an early contender to be one of the biggest songs this year, encompassing a fluid energy that unravels his stardom in the form of infectious hooks and unparalleled wordplay. Yes, he’s already had over 10 years in the scene, but clearly, the best is yet to come from Kizz Daniel.
