Kizz Daniel set for Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup performance



Kizz Daniel, a singer, is scheduled to perform at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The 28-year-old shared photos of himself with Qatar as his tagged location in an Instagram post on Tuesday morning to announce his arrival in the nation.

The singer simply captioned the photo with an eagle picture.

The day Kizz Daniel was scheduled to perform at the yearly gathering had been unclear.

When the singer did not appear on stage with fellow Nigerian singer CKay on November 20, fans who believed they were supposed to see him perform at the opening ceremony worried.

But the father of two who confirmed he will be performing at the event noted that he was billed to perform on November 23 and not 20 as speculated.

Kizz confirmed this in an Instagram post on Friday, November 11 where he posted photos of himself and other artistes that will be performing at the World cup.

Captioning his post, he wrote: “This one is for Africa. This one is for Vado nation. See you in Qatar World Cup on 23/11/2022.”

The opening ceremony of the event started with American movie star Morgan Freeman as the narrator extending one yellow-gloved hand to a FIFA World Cup ambassador suffering from a rare spinal disorder in an image meant to represent inclusion in a country facing international criticism over its human rights record.

“What unites us is greater than what divides us. We are one big tribe and the Earth is our tent. Together we can make the call for everyone to unite,” the actor noted.

Thereafter, lead vocalist of the Korean pop band BTS, Jung Kook, thrilled fans at the Al Bayt Stadium with his performance alongside Qatari singer Fahad Al-Kubaisi.

Other artiste slated to perform at Al Bayt Stadium include American DJ Thomas Wesley better known as Diplo who would be performing today, November 22, Canadian actress, dancer and singer Nora Fatehi who is set to perform on November 29 after Kizz Daniel, American singer and songwriter Trinidad Cardona who would be performing on December 1 and award-winning DJ Calvin Harris set to perform on December 10.

Before he was announced as one of the headliners for the event, Kizz Daniel born Daniel Anidugbe had expressed his desire to perform his hit song ‘Buga’ at the World Cup.

Kizz Daniel said this in a tweet on June 23 after the release of the music video which became an instant hit.

He wrote: “God I want to perform BUGA for World Cup with a mass choir help me say amen #qatar2022worldcup.”
