AdekunleGold

Bio

Adekunle Gold is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. He came to the attention of the Nigerian audience with 2014's ‘Sade’, a love song set to the beat of One Direction’s ‘Story of my Life’. ‘Sade,’ the singer has said, was inspired by a thwarted real life romance.

Born Adekunle Kosoko, AdekunleGold sang in the junior church choir and wrote his first song at 15. A graduate of Lagos State Polytechnic, Nigeria, Adekunle earned a degree in Graphics and took to singing because he was ‘tired of not being heard.’

In 2010, he formed a band Bridge with a friend. The duo released a few songs before Adekunle left to start a solo career. He released ‘Let it Stop’ in 2014. The career-transforming ‘Sade’ came at the end of the same year. He sings in Yoruba and English and identifies his genre as urban highlife.

Prior to his music, he was known across social media for artful altering of famous photos, some involving inserting his likeness into photos with famous Nigerian actresses and singers. After doing a few jobs as a graphic designer for rapper Olamide, he was signed to the latter’s YBNL record label. In 2015, the label produced the video for ‘Sade’ which has received a warm response. A few more singles, including 'Orente' and 'Pick Up' were just as well received.

At the 2015 Headies, he won the award's Best Alternative Song with 'Sade'. At the All Africa Music Awards, he won Revelation of the Year. His album, 'Gold', was released in 2016.
