How I Lost Socialising, Communicating Skills – Kizz Daniel Reveals
Kizz Daniel, the Nigerian singer, has revealed how he shrinked into his shells, became an introvert and lost his socializing and communicating skills.
Born Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe, while speaking in the latest episode of the Afrobeats Podcast, hosted by Adesope Olajide, said, he finds it difficult to socialise as a result of the bullying he suffered as a child.
According to the artiste, he was fleshy while growing up, which made the other children bully and make fun of him.
In the words of the “Buga” crooner, “I have built a world of my own in my head since I was little. Because growing up, I was a fat kid. I was chubby. So, I don’t go out because the kids in the area make fun of me. They called me orobo (someone who is fat). And they bullied me. So I always stay indoors.
“During that time that I always stayed indoors, I’d already built this fantasy world in my head. In the world that I have built in my head, I’m very comfortable in that space.
“So, I reintroduced myself to the world after I lost weight; I lost all forms of social skills. I don’t know how to communicate. I don’t know how to socialize with people.”
Kizz Daniel added that he takes alcohol sometimes to be able to deal with social anxieties.
