Kizz Daniel Delivers ‘Flex’ Paying Homage To Fela Kuti and The Roots Of Afrobeats
DJ Edu pressed play and premiered “Flex” on his show on BBC 1Xtra and the track is now available to stream and buy on all major platforms.
Collaborating with DJ Coublon, his latest drop is uplifting, energizing, and submerged in the heart and soul of Afrobeats. The Nigerian native ramps up the party vibes as he fuses instrumentation such as brass, saxophone, and trumpets. The catchy single also pays homage to Fela Anikulapo-Kuti through his lyrics and the line ‘Fela lo ni shrine’. In the line, he references the iconic nightclub where the legendary Fela Kuti used to perform and had now become a Mecca of sorts and host performances of the biggest acts in town.
Energizing our ears with the feel-good anthem “Flex”, Nigerian music sensation Kizz Daniel lures us in as he serenades us with his smooth vocals and majestic melodies. The brainchild of both Kizz Daniel and DJ Coublon, “Flex” instantaneously lights up the mood as they command a conglomeration of sounds, effortlessly knitting together guitar riffs with bold brass instrumentation to create an uplifting sound.
Confirming the stance he took on his sophomore album – No Bad Songz, Kizz Daniel does not disappoint with “Flex”.

Raise one hand in the air, another on your chest, or holding your drink and scream, “I just wan flex!”
