Adekunle Gold’s story is a peculiar one.
The boy went from graphics designer to YBNL artist, to most-promising different singer, then to afro-pop A-lister with a good variety of hits.
He’s achieved effectively for himself really. And, he’s come a great distance. I imply, it’s been some time since he was that man on the YBNL roster begging Sade for love.
Adekunle Gold emerged round 2015 and was well-known for his R&B-Various tunes like “Orente” and “Prepared.”
His debut album, “GOLD” got here in 2016 and it was an ideal first album for somebody like Adekunle. That 12 months, solely Simi was featured on his album.
His romance with Simi grew to become obvious after “No Neglect” and though, their relationship didn’t turn out to be public till someday in 2019, it was exhausting to not see they’d a connection. Simi even engineered Adekunle Gold‘s album.
After their marriage, issues have been sure to alter although. After all, they’re each creatives and there’s in all probability a manner to verify their private relationship doesn’t have an effect on their music.
And really, it wasn’t lengthy after their marriage that Adekunle Gold pivoted and reworked into an afro-pop artiste.
His album “Afro-Pop Vol. 1” was a defining second in his profession, and a few of his hottest cuts ever have been on it (“One thing Completely different,” “AG Child”).
What made the album such a banger was Adekunle’s option to go all out on the album. He didn’t maintain again, and he sang the way in which every other afro-pop would sing. In any case, what’s afro-pop if not songs about girls and massive boy way of life?
“Afro-Pop Vol. 2” Coming?
Nevertheless it looks like “Afro-Pop Vol. 2” is coming. And I’m certain if Adekunle Gold releases one other afro-pop album, it’s gonna be good.
In contrast to the primary one, although, Simi‘s involvement on this one goes to be a ‘focus’ and it will possibly both make the album higher or fuck it up.
I, for one, don’t suppose it’s going to make it higher. Already Adekunle Gold has a track out, referred to as “Sinner.”
The track which is a few good good vibes, options in style American R&B singer, Fortunate Daye. The track has the potential to turn out to be one other “One thing Completely different” or “AG Child” however I’m sensing it’s not going to stay like these two.
“Sinner” is nice, don’t get me mistaken. The one downside with the jam is the truth that he’s making all of it about his spouse. Within the paintings, he’s together with his spouse. Within the music video, his spouse. Even within the lyrics, all the things is about his spouse, Simi.
This shouldn’t be an issue, ordinarily. He could make songs about who he loves. And possibly in 2016, this could’ve been an excellent transfer. However he’s not who he was anymore. He’s now an A-list artist, supposedly doing afro-pop, music for the mainstream.
Together with his latest afro-pop re-branding, Adekunle Gold must be on the market doing songs about women whining their waist dancing to his “gbedu” or singing about some fictional heartbreak and never doing songs sharing his fantasies concerning the lady he’s married to.
And, I don’t suppose that is the tip, no. We’re in all probability going to see extra of this in Adekunle‘s music, shifting ahead. For his sake, although, I hope I’m mistaken.
Let’s hear what you suppose.
