How he got his stage name

According to the singer,

“I got the name when I was in school.

I have a dimple in my cheek and in school, when you had dimples in both cheeks, you were called ‘Kisses’.

Since I had just one, I was called ‘Kiss.’

Because there were other Daniels in school, the ladies added Kiss to my first name to tell me apart from the others.

So, when I started music I decided to stick with the name.’
