Adekunle Kosoko (born January 28, 1987), professionally known as Adekunle Gold, is a Nigerian Highlife singer, songwriter and graphic designer. He gained widespread attention after releasing the 2015 hit single “Sade”, a highlife cover of One Direction”Story of my life”. In 2015, he signed a record deal with YBNL NATION and released his debut studio album Gold, which debuted at number 7 on the Billboard World Albums chart. Gold was preceded by the release of three singles: “Sade”, “Orente” and “Pick Up”.
Nigerian men don’t know how to dress and this is a fact, don’t @ us. Adekunle Gold however doesn’t fit into this category because he always serves mad lewks! – thanks to his fusion of traditional Nigerian fabric with a modern twist.
Clearly his music isn’t the only thing about him that stands out, as his style also matters. At a time when Ankara was the main fabric that showed African style, Adekunle made adire look super cool. It’s great how we can see that even though he has a stylist, his style is quintessentially his, and not a result of a new budget or said stylist. He wears his outfits with confidence and attitude, and has also managed to rock that ‘African’ look without seeming razz.
Wilmer Edition !
It is a norm for celebrants to be the cynosure of all eyes at any occasion, but such was hardly the case for reggae/dancehall singer, Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, a.k.a Patoranking, at the listening party of his soon to be released album titled ‘Wilmer’, which held at a private lounge in Ikoyi, on Tuesday night.
While Patoranking was busy serenading guests with songs off the album, pop music star, Wizkid breezed in at about 10:45pm, to a loud ovation from guests who were uncontrollably excited to see the self-acclaimed ‘Starboy’.
Speaking to phylix’s Blog about the 12-track album which he named after his daughter, Wilmer Okorie, Patoranking noted that the album comes from a place of love and pain.
“This album is coming from a place of love and pain. I’ve put my heart and soul into this album. Wilmer has purely been a blessing and I hope this project encourages you, motivates you and blesses you. The journey hasn’t been easy but we are thankful for where we are headed. God bless every single one of you and everyone who has been a part of this masterpiece”, he said.
