Adekunle Gold discusses new album and being experimental with songs

Adekunle Gold, the Nigerian Afro-pop singer, says his usual switch from one music genre to another is because he doesn’t like being predictable as an artiste.

The 34-year-old spoke in an interview with BBC Africa wherein he discussed his music career and forthcoming album.

He said after the release of ‘Gold’, his debut album, in 2016, he felt the need to upgrade on his next project because people thought that was all he could do at the time.

Gold said in spite of his penchant for switching genres, he remains the same in terms of passion and quality in his projects.

“There’s no song of mine that doesn’t reflect me… I’m the Adekunle Gold you have known since 2015. One thing is constant: I’ll always put my soul behind any song, no matter how experimental I get, I’m always going to sound like me,” he said.

“I hate being predictable. After my first album, I feel like people thought that is the only thing that he knows how to do. Therefore, following the release of ‘Gold’ album, I said my next project will be an upgrade.

“So, I decided to make ‘About 30’ a bit different. When it dropped, there were mixed feelings, with some asking ‘what’s he up to?’.

“After ‘About 30’, I knew my next album would be a totally different sound. So, in all these, I knew it and planned for it. Not like I just woke up and decide that I want to change. I don’t just want to be the guy that is known for only making a certain sound.”

The singer also revealed that his new album would be released in few weeks, adding that the project would be “mind-blowing.”

“I’m not allowed to share details about it now but it’ll drop in like few weeks and will be mind-blowing. I have proven that with ‘Sinner‘ already,” he added.

He also discussed the synergy between him and Simi, his wife, explaining that the pair’s support for each other has contributed to their success.

“Sometimes, I help her with her songs and she does that for me as well,” he said.
