Kiss Daniel got involved in a controversy over his real age. It all started after he graduated from school with his age confirmed to be 18, which was obviously different from what Wikipedia recorded. In an interview with Rubin’s Mind on April 17, 2017, he stated his age was nobody’s business. And that he with his team would have to put up a press release to announce his actual age. It sounds silly and absurd. It was concluded Kiss Daniel fumbled for words due to inadequate preparation for the interview.
