Almost a year ago, Afro-soul singer Adekunle Gold held his first headline show for Lagos fans. It was well attended and fans had a swell time. (A review of the show is here).
This year, he’s taking a cue from fans that begged for more by returning with a three-day residency and performing on each of the night.
Since his departure from the Olamide led YBNL in 2017, Gold has invested in his craft and has positioned himself as a live performer of note, leading a 15 man ensemble called “The 79th Element”.
With an album under in belt in 2018 as well as a sold-out London concert, his attempt to wrap up the year in this fashion if anything, is bold. His appeal of being a magnetic performer will no doubt be on display when he goes on stage for the three nights.
Last year while performing with Simi, he made hearts race when he went down on a knee.
Fans thought he was about to propose- to confirm the long-running rumour that the two were an item. But he didn’t. Perhaps he will one of these three nights?
