“Thank You Uncle Abel”- Kizz opens up on Winners Chapel’s influence on his music


Afrobeats singer Oluwatobiloba Anidugbe ‘Kizz Daniel’, like many Nigerian musicians, has disclosed that he began composing music in church.

Kizz Daniel said on Wednesday, April 24, during a Q&A session with followers on X, formerly known as Twitter, that a particular Uncle Abel of Living Faith Church Worldwide, or Winner Chapel, founded by Bishop David Oyedepo, pushed him to pursue a career in music.

In a tweet, he wrote: “Thank you uncle Abel (WINNERS CHAPEL) for telling me to do music.”

Below is another tweet from Kizz Daniel admitting he began his music in the church.

The musician, who has since become a household name in the Nigerian music business, is about to celebrate his tenth anniversary since his ascent to prominence.
