Adekunle Gold is getting set to release his first studio album aptly titled GOLD. The singer has since had a photoshoot with famed photographer TY Bello which we posted this morning.
Speaking on his album, he wrote on Social Media:
“When the thought to start working on album came, I was not sure what I wanted to call it. I prayed to God(as always) to give me a name.
I started talking to my friends to give me ideas. @miss_zbuhari and I were talking about the album title one evening and she mentioned “Gold” amongst many other names, but I dismissed the idea.
I took my confusion to Twitter and asked friends to suggest a name. Almost everybody suggested “Gold”. Shame didn’t let me go back to Zahra to tell her I’m going with ‘Gold’ until weeks after.
I spoke to @tybello about my ideas for the album art. She told me she had gotten a revelation 2 days earlier, about Bazaleel of Exodus 31. She didn’t need to explain too much, because I fell in love with the idea almost immediately and started feeling like Bazaleel.
I had an amazing time working with @tybello. She’s phenomenal. I was thrilled that she loved the songs on the album, even though they weren’t finished. Thank you TY!
Stay tuned guys, more exciting news coming up”
