YBNL act, Adekunle Gold, is ready to step up his music career in a big way. After dropping four hit singles in the last two years and bagging awards from within and outside the country, the Sade crooner believes this is the right time to test the acceptance of his music among his fans with his first album on Olamide’s YBNL record label.
After the departure of Lil Kesh from YBNL, the focus had been on Gold to step up his game and put his career on the map as many people believed that his career was fairly overshadowed by Lil Kesh’s presence.
Having realised the expectations from his fans, Gold, who signalled his emergence on the music scene with his hit single, Sade, has announced that he would be dropping an album anytime from now. The album, according to Gold, will be dropped on the July 28.
The album which he called The Gold Season is expected to showcase the best of the YBNL star.
According to Gold, “ In the Gold album, I bare my soul to the world. I want people to experience what I felt while creating the album. Also, I hope that in the coming years, my music will still sound as fresh as they did the day they were released.”
Gold is a graduate of Lagos State Polytechnic with a degree in Graphics. He is no stranger to music as he wrote his first song at the age of 15. His music career kicked off officially in 2010 when he formed a band called The Bridge with his best friend Seyikeyz. The duo released three songs; No Sleeping on a Bicycle, Norm Breaker which featured Skales and a cover for John Legend.
