MEET NIGERIAN TOP ACT ADEKUNKE GOLD




YBNL Nation Artiste Adekunle Gold has emerged as one of the fastest rising Nigerian music stars in the continent, celebrated for his unique style of music - Urban Highlife. Releasing his debut album GOLD last year, the songs: Orente, Pick Up, and Ready emerged as some of the leading and successful hit singles. It also made it to #7 on Billboard in the first week of release.



Ahead of his anticipated visit and media tour, he says, “I’ve been getting a lot of love from East Africa and Kenya - many people say that even though they don’t understand my language my music is beautiful,” adding on his overall identity and expression: “I am 100% African at heart – and my style is super traditional African. I don’t deny or feel shy of my roots and I make that clear everyday by the things I say and how I dress. I am into colourful prints and tie and dye.”



Adekunke Gold will be running his first East African media tour in Nairobi and Dar es Saalam organized and managed by Anyiko PR. He also intends to hit the studio with some heavyweights. He is also planning to meet and greet friends and fans.







Adekunle’s 16-track GOLD album enlisted top Nigerian producers including Masterkraft, Seyikeyz, Oscar, Pheelz, B Banks and Sleekamo. Renowned Nigerian singer Simi mix and mastered all the songs on Adekunle’s album except track 16 which was done by V-Tek. The album was Nigeria’s first to have all tracks side by side pictorial representation. His cover of One Direction's Story Of My Life was the song titled Sade, credited to have been a propelling force in Adekunle’s career. Sade even won the Best Alternative Song at Nigerian respected award ceremony – The Headies (2015).
