Nigerian singer, Daniel Anidugbe known in the showbiz circles as Kizz Daniel, has revealed that, his father was the first person he called when he lost his virginity at 21.

The artiste in an interview published in TheWill Downtown Magazine spoke about becoming a parent, his social media outrage last year, and his relationship with his father.

Kizz Daniel said “My dad is my best friend. I used the word ‘is’ because he’s still in my heart after him, then my brother. So I was really close to my dad but not so much with my mum.

“As a normal dude, the day I lost my virginity, I should have called my friends but it was my dad. I lost my virginity at the age of 21 — as a kid, I was a bookworm and a huge nerd.

“I studied Water Engineering and graduated with a 4.32 GPA — so I’m narrating everything to him; from the beginning, all the way to the end and he laughed from start to finish. It was a very weird conversation but that just goes to show how deep the bond went.”

On fatherhood, the artiste said, becoming a father has made him more aware of what’s going on around him and now he thinks twice before spending one naira.


He said, “I’m a father and I’m quite particular about energy not just around me but around everyone close to my kids and the mother of my kids. It made me more responsible.

“Now I think twice before spending one naira. I used to be a sports car enthusiast, now I’m an SUV guy. I just bought a 2021 Lexus 520 and when I wanted to get it, I knew I wouldn’t drive it. All my cars are sports cars; I’m not a big car kind of guy but now I have to be one.”
