Urban Highlife singer, Adekunle Gold has revealed the title of the full body of work – GOLD.
In a telephone chat with Channels TV’s Entertainment News presenter, Mayowa Ogundele, the ‘Orente’ crooner said that although he’s keeping details of guest features close to his chest, the album will be released sometime between May and June and it will contain many surprises.
“It’s in the works. If I’m featuring anybody or not, I am not ready to say yet, but, definitely there are surprises on the album’.
He described the album as ‘a piece of a mind’ as he tells different stories about his life experiences as well as the stories of other people.
“I’ve been working round the clock to make sure it’s an amazing one”, he said, adding that Pheelz, Oscar and Seyi Keys are some of the producers working on the album.
According to him, the album will be one big ‘gist’, an avenue for him to tell stories he didn’t get a chance to tell. “I’m just to gist about everything”, he said.
Adekunle Gold took Nigeria’s music industry by storm with the release of his debut song as a solo artiste, Sade, a story about his reluctant love interest, which has been followed by two more hits – Orente, Pick Up and now a new track he calls Ready.
His unique sound, a rhythmic story-telling delivery have seen him win top awards – All Africa Music Awards, Headies – within a short time of making his entry into the industry.
With the release of ‘Ready’, a song in which he professes his readiness to be in love, the YBNL star is, perhaps, telling the world that his debut album is READY.
