Philip Ahaiwe Chukwuja, well known as Philkeys, a legendary music producer, has recalled a time when he turned down Kizz Daniel after the singer offered to pay him N50,000 for a studio session.
He claimed that when Kizz Daniel made the offer, Kizz Daniel was only starting out and turned it down because he was already collaborating with King Sunny Ade, a famed musician.
However, Philkeys claimed that after the ‘Woju’ crooner achieved fame, he later teamed up with Kizz Daniel and recorded many songs with him.
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.”
