One of the most recognisable and exciting pioneers of the Afropop genre mixing Afrobeat and Pop music and currently dominating airwaves across the globe, Gold is one of the most elegant artists to come out of Africa.
“Weirdly, I was thinking about King David and Bathsheba’s sexcapade and thought it’d make a beautiful song.”
Adekunle Gold is a Nigerian born and bred singer-songwriter based between Lagos, Nigeria, and Los Angeles, CA. He gained recognition from his very first release, "Sade," a love song which sampled instrumentals from One Direction's ‘Story of My Life’. Just two weeks after the release of ‘Sade’on Adekunle was contacted by one of Africa's biggest acts, Olamide, to join his music imprint for two years.
Since then, Adekunle has released 3 albums: Gold (debuting at #7 on the Billboard World Albums Chart), About 30 (shortlisted for the GRAMMY® Best World Album), and AfroPop Vol 1 with the global hit records ‘Okay’ and ‘Something Different’
