In recent times, popular Nigerian rapper, Sodiq Abubakar Yusuf, aka CDQ, has been hogging news headlines for the wrong reasons. But this time around there seems to be a bit of a good news about him as he has become the first Nigerian artiste not signed to G-Worldwide record label, to feature Kiss Daniel on a song.
In a chat with Showtime, CDQ, who released his latest single titled, ‘Gbayi’, just yesterday, featuring embattled former G-Worldwide signee, Kiss Daniel, denied allegations of exploiting Kiss Daniel to save his music career which has been heavily criticised and described as “Street Music.”
“Kiss Daniel and I have got chemistry. It’s natural when two people connect musically and have a good heart. I guess that’s why the collaboration worked out between me and him. We are both exploiting each other because we are tapping into each other’s fan base. Basically, we just got musical connection and we vibe, just like it happened between Davido and I , Wizkid and I, also. Being the first Nigerian artiste outside G-Worldwide to feature Kiss Daniel wasn’t something I expected to happen so soon.
This means that there is something he saw in me also before choosing to work with me. So, there’s nothing like anyone taking advantage of the other. It’s a rub my back I rub yours thing”, he said.
