Last Friday (July 28), Kizz Daniel liberated his new LP, Maverick, which consisted of 20 songs with additional contributions from the likes of Tekno, Jalil, Jelani, Not3s, Yemi Alade, Jahmiel, and DJ Big N. DJ Coublon, Reward Beatz, Blaisebeatz, Philkeyz, and more handle the production. As explained via press release, the album was “an ode to his Nigerian culture and a testament to his community.”
Maverick was led by “Cough (Odo),” an infectious cut that was originally released in 2022 and later spawned a remix with Becky G. In an accompanying clip, Daniel could be seen in a massive residence with friends, where he serenaded his love interest with melodic lines that mix between English and Yoruba.
“Odo eh, odoyewu ye, you know that my body calling, and your body picking, loving you dey make me forget say I get problem, by the end of the night, enter bathroom, fresh up, I want to flex my love, I wan impress, and I want to carry my love away to a place she loves…”
Other singles like “RTID (Rich Till I Die),” “Buga (Lo Lo Lo),” and “Shu-Peru” further added to the vibrance of the celebratory effort. All-in-all, Daniel’s latest body of work served as a vivid audio passport that immerses you within the Giant of Africa.
Maverick followed 2021’s Barnabas, a seven-song EP with assists from Kelvyn Colt and The Cavemen. Since then, Daniel continued his momentum via collaborations like “Bluffin” with Afro B and “GWAGWALADA” with Bnxn and Seyi Vibez.
During a visit to “Way Up With Angela Yee” (above), the “Red & Green” talent opened up about Pryme, a rising star that he and his team signed to Flyboy INC. “He’s really good, he’s also on the album. What I wanna do is… put out young talent from Africa to the rest of the world,” he explained. With that, press play on Maverick below.
