Adekunle is one of the best things to happen to the Nigerian music industry. His style, his music, his originality, his band (the 79th element), etc, all sum up to mean one thing: Adekunle Gold is a king! His music is lit. He’s one of the few artistes whose songs you can actually play in front of children and he’s dashing. So if you’re not on team Adekunle already, here are eight reasons why you should join us.
1. His Beards Connect
Adekunle is the hottest thing after moimoi, if we’ll be honest with ourselves. Siince he decided to join the beard gang, all has been better in the world (at least on Instagram). His beauty is unthreatening, you may even overlook it the first few times until one day when it dawns on you, that Broda Adekunle is a fine man with connecting beards.
2. Adekunle is a Slay King
Whether he styles himself, or works with a professional stylist, I don’t know and I don’t care. The brother has the right fashion attitude. Whether he’s wearing bathroom slippers in the Abroad or Prada shoes at the beach, our Adekunle would rock it well.
3. He Represents Us Well
Adekunle’s Instagram bio reads, “African AF!” and boy is it true! Adekunle is the Adire king. Rocking African prints and singing in Yoruba like it’s no man’s business. In his own words, “music connect the world, irrespective of language”. Well, shalla to my Orente!
4. He’s an Art
Adekunle is not just a musician, and songwriter, he’s an art. His music permeates the soul; the beautifully-crafted lyrics saturates the mind and his voice is like that of a an ancient minstrel. Adekunle is an experience.
5. The Lord Commander, The King in the West.
Who needs Jon Snow when you have Adekunle Gold (especially after hearing that Jon and everybody will die in season * of GOT)? Our MCM and his Khaleesi, Simi are winning the war against the white walkers a.k.a Pangolo artistes in the Nigerian music industry.
6. Adekunle Loves Us
Unlike evil Banky who went ahead to break hearts all over the world by proposing to Adesua Etomi, Adekunle is very private about his love life. After all these years, Baba has still not admitted that Simi is the woman in his life. Do you know why? It is so we can crush on him in peace! Is he not wise?
7. King of Photoshop
Adekunle has been featured in the songs of international celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyoncé, etc but you don’t know that because it all happened on his Instagram page with the help of Photoshop. Just look at him chilling with the Empire crew.
8. Twitter Savage.
This tweet already speaks for itself.
And this one.
If you’re still not convinced, then listen to his new single, “Call on Me”. Welcome to the new week!
