Many Nigerian fans are confused as to why their favorite musicians Daniel Anidugbe, better known by his stage name Kizz Daniel was absent from the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony in Qatar, Newspremises reports.
Morgan Freeman Qatar introduced the world to what to expect from the event, which culminates on December 18, in an intriguing yet colorful ceremony.

“As Naija no go world cup, see as hommies dey wait for Kizz Daniel’s performance, make we use that one hold body 1st.”

A fan wrote:
“Oh! Did Kizz Daniel perform? That was what I was waiting for oh.. Please did he? Cos I missed some part of the opening, maybe he came later I need confirmations.”
When was Kizz Daniel supposed to perform?
Meanwhile, The Net reports that FIFA earlier confirmed that Kizz Daniel will perform at the FIFA Fan Festival event in Doha on November 23.
